Without a doubt, the biggest match on the card that fans have their eyes locked dead on is the main event between John Cena and Brock Lesnar.
It has been heavily rumored ever since Lesnar's return to WWE that he would taste gold at some point.
Years later, this has still not happened, but this event may be when push comes to shove and Lesnar is on top of WWE once again.
Some are hesitant to believe this, considering the win-loss record that Cena boasts and the stigma that WWE always wants him to win. In this scenario, if Cena wins, fans may not necessarily riot (as so often threatened), but there will definitely be a feeling of it being a bland, "same-old-stuff" situation.
If Lesnar wins, though, things get much more interesting.
How does WWE operate when their primary champion only makes sporadic appearances and wrestles sparingly?
Almost every time a new title belt makes its debut, it coincides with a new champion, so Lesnar's chances to win here are upgraded in that respect.
However, that does not mean that that is a guarantee.
Not only is it an option for Cena to retain and debut the title, but there is also a chance that Seth Rollins cashes in his Money in the Bank contract. SummerSlam has been witness to several title shots over the years to change things around and surprise the fans.
With WWE Network subscriptions not quite at the level that the company would like them to be, renewals will be a huge factor in determining the outcome of this match.
A new champion is the best means to bring about anticipation for Night of Champions and coax people into getting out their wallets and signing up for a few more months.
Given the three potential choices for who walks out of the event with the title, a Lesnar victory has more steam behind it and will probably happen.
Whatever happens after he wins the title is up for speculation, but one way or another, the WWE Universe is in for something big here.
