• Reason Behind Brock Lesnar Losing Clean At SummerSlam 2019, Next Plan For Lesnar
As seen in the main event of SummerSlam 2019, “The Beast Slayer” Seth Rollins defeated “The Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar clean to win the Universal Championship.
Lesnar lost fair & square in this match because his time on RAW is over now. Lesnar is done with RAW and he’ll now be moving over to SmackDown when the show moves to FOX in October.
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.
We’ll keep you updated regarding these plans.
