A WWE spokesperson dismissed as “preposterous” the allegations that Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns have faced one another before.

Roman Reigns has earned the right to face reigning and “defending” WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam, in what is being hyped by World Wrestling Entertainment as a “Once in a Lifetime” showdown.

“History will be made at SummerSlam!” hollered Michael Cole this past Monday when Reigns defeated Bobby Lashley to become the number-one contender for the rarely seen champsionship.

But many sports-entertainment fans and pundits are questioning the validity of the “Once in a Lifetime” slogan, insisting that Reigns and Lesnar have faced one another on numerous occasions.

Such objections seem to have fallen on deaf ears, however, as WWE tweeted this morning that the Reigns-Lesnar match is “unprecedented” and will be “like nothing ever seen before.”

A poster for SummerSlam depicts Reigns and Lesnar glaring at each other, flanked by the words: “Never Before. Never Again.”

Backstage sources confirm that Reigns and Lesnar will face one another at Hell in a Cell, Survivor Series, TLC: Table Ladders & Chairs, and the recently announced all-women’s pay-per-view, Evolution.
