Seth Rollins will defend the Universal Championship against AJ Styles at Money In The Bank 2019 PPV. Rollins is expected to win this match and retain the Universal Title.

According to the Wrestling Observer, Rollins’ next feud for the Universal Championship could be against the man who pinned him on this week’s RAW – Baron Corbin.

Seth Rollins vs. Baron Corbin for the Universal Championship is being advertised for future WWE Live Events and this was also a match that was locally advertised for Extreme Rules 2019 PPV.

In an update to this, Slice Wrestling is reporting that the Universal Championship feud between Rollins & Corbin could get cancelled due to the current drop in viewership.

For those who don’t know, WWE is currently under a lot of pressure from their TV partners due to record low viewership numbers.
