Historically, Brock Lesnar tends to have a nonchalant approach to matches. He’s The Beast after all and didn’t gain that moniker by being an easy opponent to overcome.
However, his feud with Seth Rollins over the Universal Championship has been a bit different. Rollins and Lesnar have been tearing each other apart for months at this point, and things became even more violent when Rollins successfully won the Universal Championship from Lesnar at WrestleMania 35 in April (with a low blow, which only angered The Beast even more).
Suffering a loss isn’t something that Brock Lesnar is exactly accustomed to, and he did not take it well. After winning the Money in the Bank briefcase, Lesnar tortured Rollins for weeks with the idea that he could cash-in at any time, even beating Rollins down, but deciding not to cash-in at the last second.
Finally, earlier this month at Extreme Rules, Lesnar cashed in his Money in the Bank briefcase and took the Universal Championship back from Seth Rollins. By winning another battle royal, Seth Rollins will have a chance to recapture the title at Summerslam, but Brock Lesnar isn’t about to lose his precious championship again.
Intent on keeping the Brock Party rolling, Brock Lesnar devised a plan to make winning the Universal Championship as difficult as possible for The Kingslayer. During Rollins’ match against Dolph Ziggler last night on Raw, Brock Lesnar took it upon himself to interrupt. And not just cost Rollins the victory but completely destroy him.
Brock Lesnar ragdolled Seth Rollins around the ring before wrecking him at ringside – and he was just getting started.
After three F5s straight onto the ridge of a steel chair, Seth Rollins was laid out in the middle of the ring “coughing up blood,” and only stopped when Paul Heyman climbed into the ring and pleaded with him to relent.
Seth Rollins was stretchered away to an ambulance waiting backstage, but Brock Lesnar, determined to inflict as much damage as he could in one night, caught up with the ambulance and stopped it before it left the building.
Wrenching the ambulance doors open, Brock Lesnar flung Seth Rollins, still strapped to a stretcher, onto the floor. Lesnar kicked an already injured Rollins repeatedly before throwing another F5, this time into the railing of the metal stretcher.
At this point, Lesnar decided that Rollins had enough punishment for one evening, but unfortunately for Rollins, Summerslam is still two weeks away, which leaves plenty of time and opportunities for further brutality.
That being said, the tides could turn and Rollins could get his revenge in the time before Summerslam, but he may be too “injured” to appear on Raw at all, let alone to take on The Beast more times than absolutely necessary. And even if he isn’t, it’s probably not the most advisable decision.
