Seth Rollins defeated Brock Lesnar last night at SummerSlam to win the Universal Championship for the second time.
“The Architect” built the perfect strategy to dethrone Lesnar. He used his speed advantage to relentlessly attack Lesnar and countered numerous German suplex attempts.
“The Beast Incarnate” nearly picked up the win, though. He had Rollins in position for the F-5, only for him to wriggle free and hit a superkick. Sensing his opportunity, Rollins delivered the Stomp on Lesnar for the victory.
Paul Heyman announced this afternoon on Twitter that Lesnar will not receive a rematch against Rollins.
“My client #BrockLesnar and I have been apprised “no rematch will be granted” against WWE’s Universal Heavyweight Champion #SethRollins!!!” Heyman wrote. “We find this decision to be arbitrary and patently unfair!”
According to WWE insider Tom Colohue, Rollins’ next opponent for the Universal Championship is Drew McIntyre.
