Seth Rollins Opens up on his Plans as WWE Universal Champion

Seth Rollins Opens up on his Plans as WWE Universal Champion

The way Brock Lesnar was handled and lost at WrestleMania on Sunday points to a likely UFC return for the heavyweight fighter.

We opened the show and now here we are years later, Universal Championship, Brock Lesnar, we opened the show.

As was the case at last night's WrestleMania 35 when the superstar's "advocate", Paul Heyman, came out at the top of the show and announced that Lesnar's Universal Championship match against Seth Rollins would start the evening. Three curb stomps later saw Rollins pin his opponent and win the WWE Universal titie.

Lesnar pounced on Rollins before the challenger could even enter the ring, obliterating him continuously on the outside.

California senator Kamala Harris said on Monday night she raised $12m since announcing her presidential bid in January. Still, her campaign reported receiving 98 percent of contributions in amounts smaller than $100.

Lesnar's WrestleMania match had been set up for months though, as Royal Rumble victor Seth Rollins had set his sights on the Raw champion from the minute he became victorious.

Brock Lesnar has not fought since he battled Mark Hunt in the co-main event of UFC 200 in July of 2016.

Ever since that time, Cormier has been anxiously awaiting his chance to face Lesnar in what would undoubtedly be one of the biggest UFC fights of 2019. The decision to put Rollins vs. Lesnar on first was not made until around 5:30pm ET time.

The fact that Lesnar lost might hint towards him not being at Summerslam, WWE's major August event, and thus a bout with Cormier in the octagon. He is also a one-time United States Champion, a one-time Intercontinental Champion, a one-time WWE Tag Team Champion (with Rollins), the 2015 Royal Rumble victor, and the 2014 Superstar of the Year.
