WWE's second biggest show of the year takes place this Sunday night, when The Undertaker and Brock Lesnar headline SummerSlam 2015 from New York City, live on Sky Box Office.

The 28th edition of the company's summer spectacular promises to be the biggest yet, with a jam-packed house at the Barclays Centre witnessing one of the most eagerly-awaited rematches in professional wrestling history, as the Deadman seeks revenge against the Beast who ended his legendary undefeated streak at Wrestlemania 30.

Despite returning to defeat Bray Wyatt at this year's Showcase of the Immortals, the Phenom had unfinished business with Paul Heyman's most famous client, and returned at Battleground to vanquish Lesnar and ruin his chances of regaining the WWE World Heavyweight Championship from Seth Rollins that he lost at Wrestlemania 31.

The pair will now go head-to-head once again this Sunday in what promises to be a fight for the ages, though plenty of other matches will be hoping to steal the show.

Rollins himself will be in action in the second featured attraction, as he goes up against Unites States Champion John Cena, with both men's titles on the line.

A win for Rollins would see him become a triple crown champion in the WWE and also make him the first person in company history to hold the US and World titles at the same time.

Meanwhile, victory for Cena would be his 16th world championship victory, drawing him level with the legendary Nature Boy Ric Flair at the top of the all-time titles list.

Further down the card, Rollins' former Shield stablemates Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose will team up to take on the reformed Wyatt family, Bray and Luke Harper, while Kevin Owens and Cesaro will tussle in what could be the sleeper hit of the night.

There will be the usual celebrity involvement in the special 4-hour event, with Stephen Amell from the TV show Arrow in attendance, but unlike most famous faces appearing at WWE events, he will actually be wrestling a match, as he tags with The Man that Gravity Forgot, Neville, to take on Stardust and King Barrett.

With Ryback defending the Intercontinental Championship against The Miz and Big Show in a triple threat match and The Prime Time Players putting their Tag Team Titles on the line in a fatal fourway bout against Los Matadores, The Lucha Dragons and The New Day, there is a strong chance that silverware could be changing hands this weekend.

SummerSlam 2015 is live on Sky Box Office this Sunday (August 23rd) from midnight, with viewers able to watch it live or view replays for up to seven days for £19.95.
