In light of TV this week, as well as what appear to be plans for a Roman Reigns vs Randy Orton bout at this summer's big PPV, the rumored Roman Reigns vs Triple H match is NOT likely to happen at Summerslam.

WWE's Night of Champions, or Hell in a Cell, look to be better PPV events for HHH vs Reigns, as the bout will help spike Network subscription renewals, and begin Reigns' big push into WrestleMania 31.

Will the Launch of the WWE Network Prevent Big Returns Like The Rock?

With WWE's PPV landscape changing so drastically with the launch of the WWE Network, it will be interesting to see how much WWE is willing to spend on big returns like those of The Rock.

For his past couple WrestleMania matches, The Rock was paid a percentage of the event's revenue, which is tied into PPV buys, as opposed to a guaranteed amount.

In past interviews, The Rock has noted he would be interested in returning to WWE if the deal was similar to his past deals, but with PPV revenue taking a hit due to the Network, it might be impossible for WWE to spend that much money on a name like The Rock.
