Brock Lesnar will not be getting a rematch for Seth Rollins' Universal Championship

Brock Lesnar

Despite being a favourite to retain his Universal Championship at SummerSlam this past weekend, WWE gave us a very shock result.

Seth Rollins walked into Toronto beat up and in pain, but he walked out with the title over his shoulder.

In what may have been one of the best matches of the Universal Title's three-year history, Rollins and Lesnar tore the house down, with Rollins emerging as a surprising winner.

He of course defeated Lesnar at WrestleMania just four months ago, but had to use dirty tactics to get over the line.

The pre-WrestleMania storyline played out a little bit similar in the build-up to SummerSlam, with Lesnar cashing in his Money In The Bank briefcase at Extreme Rules on Rollins to once again become champion.

Lesnar has only been in title storylines in recent years, so it was perhaps surprising to see Paul Heyman's tweet before Raw went on the air last night.

Brock's advocate stated that he was told by WWE that 'no rematch would be granted' against Rollins, which is in keeping with the 'no automatic rematch clauses' rule that WWE now has.

Note that Heyman didn't say he was going to challenge the decision, and even though he is the Executive Director of Monday Night Raw now, that hasn't been mentioned at all on-screen, so it doesn't look like he's going to exert his 'power' to benefit Lesnar.

What may happen though is that Lesnar could go after Kofi Kingston instead.

With SmackDown's big move to FOX coming up in October, the network may push to capture Lesnar for the blue brand as they want to bring a more sporting feel to the product.

Brock being a former UFC champion brings just that, and WWE Champion Kingston better keep looking over his shoulder, as the obvious creative decision would be to bring Brock to Friday nights.

With a star-studded line-up already announced for the first FOX episode, which is also the special 20th anniversary show for SmackDown, what are the chances that Lesnar turns up to cause chaos?
