Possible Reason Why Brock Lesnar Lost The WWE Universal Championship To Seth Rollins At SummerSlam 2019



Brock Lesnar lost the WWE Universal Championship to Seth Rollins in a highly physical title defense last night at SummerSlam in Toronto, Canada.

Per early betting odds, The Beast was the favorite to retain the title while The Beastslayer sat on the underdog’s throne.

While fans are definitely happy with the booking, critics haven’t hesitated in pointing out the fact that WWE just took the gold off their biggest draw, Lesnar.

As previously reported, the reason why Vince McMahon decided to crown Lesnar champion at Extreme Rules was to ensure a sold-out SummerSlam, boost ratings and revenue.

On Dropkick DiSKussions podcast, Tom Colohue revealed that Vince and not Paul Heyman wants Brock to carry the big red belt.

“At this point, Vince McMahon is not in charge of the direction of this particular feud. Paul Heyman is in charge of RAW now. Paul Heyman knows that you can’t have someone vanishing with the title so long. He’s seen it, he’s seen the effect of it.”

Heyman, the new Executive Director Of Monday Night RAW, shares a personal relationship with Lesnar both on and off the screen. As the sole Advocate of The Beast, Heyman is the only person in all of WWE who has the authority to speak on behalf/for his client in public.

“You have got to remember, yes, Brock and Heyman have been paired up for a long time, but it was not Paul Heyman’s decision to be paired up with Brock Lesnar again. It was a collective creative decision. Yes, Heyman has been involved quite a lot in this regard, he was, for example, one of the main voices for Finn Balor to be working with Lesnar at the Royal Rumble. Heyman wants to work with what he has. There are no guarantees that he has Brock Lesnar because that’s down to Vince McMahon putting his hand in his pocket. You cannot just go to Vince and say, ‘I want Brock this week, this week, this week, and this week.’ It’s not going to happen.”

It’s worth speculating whether Lesnar would’ve dropped the title had he been a full-time Superstar in WWE.
