With the Beast Incarnate not scheduled to defend his title at Money in the Bank much to the dismay of many, there is one superstar he could face after the pay-per-view.
By SportBrief Reporter
Brock Lesnar has got on the bad side of the WWE Universe as of late, with fans getting increasingly annoyed with his limited appearances, especially given that he is the current Raw WWE champion.
That annoyance has further been fuelled by the fact that the Beast isn’t scheduled to defend his belt at Money in the Bank on June 17.
However, the WWE Universe may well get their wish of a ‘fighting champion’ after Money in the Bank, with Seth Rollins reportedly being mooted as Lesnar’s next opponent.
Rollins, has proven to be a fighting champion as he has put the Intercontinental Championship on the line in an open challenge two weeks in a row as compared to Lesnar who appears once or twice in a month.
According to Ringside News, PWInsider’s Mike Johnson claims The Kingslayer’s Twitter activity may be teasing a match against The Beast.
The Architect tweeted #BrockWho when announcing yet another open challenge ahead of RAW at the O2 last Monday.
He tweeted: “Highly considering another Open Challenge for the IC Title this Monday in London. @MojoRawleyWWE put in a career performance last week. Interested to see who wants to step up to the plate this time. #MondayNightRollins #fightingchampion #brockwho
Lesnar works with WWE on a part-time basis and the fans have become frustrated as he rarely defends the Universal Championship. Rollins retained the belt last week against Mojo Rawley and also bettered Kevin Owens in London this week.
The ex-WWE Champion has a history with Lesnar as he won his first and only world championship from him at WrestleMania 31 with The Heist of the Century.
The Intercontinental Champion became the first ever WWE superstar to cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase at WrestleMania and crashed The Conqueror’s match against Reigns.
They faced off at Battleground in 2015 for the WWE title where Lesnar beat Rollins by disqualification following interference from Undertaker.
His reign was ended by a sudden injury that made him miss WrestleMania. If Rollins were to take the WWE title from Lesnar, the WWE Universe would no doubt be elated as they would finally get a champion who actually shows up week in and week out.
