Backstage Note On Insane SummerSlam Ring Lift Spot

Backstage Note On Insane SummerSlam Ring Lift Spot WWE

In the main event of SummerSlam, Brock Lesnar challenged for Roman Reigns’ Undisputed WWE Universal Championship in a Last Man Standing bout.

Towards the end of the bout, Lesnar used his tractor to lift a corner of the ring rolling Reigns out to ringside.

Videos of the insane spot from various angles have been circulating online since SummerSlam went off the air.

Per PWInsider, the spot had been rehearsed at least once before the show, with someone from the production team practicing the lift, rather than Lesnar.

The report also noted that when Lesnar moved the ring with the tractor prior to the lift on the show, the ring shifted far rougher and harder than anybody had planned for.

Lesnar was ultimately defeated by Reigns in the closing moments of the show. The Beast returned to the ring after the cameras stopped rolling, leading to speculation that Lesnar will now retire from wrestling.
