Early SummerSlam Promotion Leaks Hyping John Cena vs. Brock Lesnar

Mike Killam

A short video was uploaded to Vimeo today from user “TheRussianPolice” that looks to be a promotional package for this year’s WWE SummerSlam event. In the video – featured below – it hypes 15-time WWE Champion John Cena facing former UFC Champion and former WWE Champion Brock Lesnar, a match that has been rumored for the past month. 

The final frame of the video shows that the commercial is from MTS, which is a Canadian PPV provider. 

KILLAM: I’m trying to find a way to prove this isn’t legit, but I can’t see one. It’s clearly got the guy who does all their other PPV voice-overs, looks professionally made, and has recent footage of WrestleMania and Cena winning the title for a 15th time, so it isn’t an edited version of their 2012 Extreme Rules match. By this point everyone and their Great Aunt knows this match is happening next month, I’m just surprised WWE doesn’t have better quality control, as they still have a PPV to promote for this Sunday.
