WWE has released the official commercial spot promoting John Cena vs. Brock Lesnar for this year’s SummerSlam PPV.
The match was made official last night on Monday Night Raw, when Lesnar made his return to the WWE. John Cena is expected back on television in the near future to begin promoting the big summer blockbuster, once filming for his latest external project has wrapped up. SummerSlam is live on PPV and the WWE Network on August 17th.
Note: this is not the same video that has been playing in Canadian markets for the past few weeks.
KILLAM: This is a pretty nice video package, made to look a lot like a traditional UFC commercial. Especially with tag line “the biggest fight of the summer.” That’s not a terrible idea, as WWE can still probably garner some attention from the MMA community with Lesnar back in such a high profile role. The last time these two faced off – Exteme Rules 2012 – Cena wasn’t the champion.
