WWE News: Real Reason Why Brock Lesnar Is No More Universal Champion
Summerslam 2019 ended in the happiest way possible where the prime babyface superstar of Monday Night Raw has stood tall. As seen in the main event of the show, “The Beast Slayer” Seth Rollins defeated “The Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar to win the Universal Championship. This is for the second time in a year that Rollins has been able to pin him after Wrestlemania 35.
The more significant part of the win is that Brock Lesnar suffered a clean pinfall loss. This is a rare occasion of the illustrious career of The Conqueror that he suffered such a devastating loss. It could harm his strong character, moving forward. But WWE has solid planning around him in the fall that could bring him back to the top.
There’s a reason why Brock Lesnar lost the Universal Championship just after winning it at Extreme Rules. As reported by wwfoldschool.com, Lesnar lost fair & square in this match because his time on Raw is over now. He’ll no more be appearing on the flagship show and should now be moving over to Smackdown Live when the show moves to FOX in October.
It does not come as a surprise since FOX Sports wants to present Smackdown in more of a mainstream way possible. Previously in UFC, Brock Lesnar was a familiar name in this network who will return in the same territory representing the WWE. There’s no bigger box office attraction present in the WWE than this name who would be moving to the blue brand for over 15 years. Here’s more of future planning around him from the source,
“Lesnar, along with multiple other legends, is scheduled to appear on the debut episode of SmackDown on FOX on October 4th.
There have been talks of Lesnar going after WWE Champion Kofi Kingston to generate major interest for the show on FOX. For this to happen, Kofi would have to defeat Randy Orton is his current feud.”
