Brock Lesnar‘s SummerSlam opponent has finally been announced … The Beast will face-off against Randy Orton for the first time in over a decade.

The match was made official Thursday night on SmackDown and will take place August 21st in Brooklyn following Brock’s return to MMA this weekend at UFC 200.

Lesnar and Orton faced off once in 2002, but the two have surprisingly never crossed paths since.

Paul Heyman recently listed Orton as a potential dream match for his client during an interview and said, “I would love to see modern-day Brock Lesnar against modern-day Randy Orton.”
