Brock Lesnar, who is the current Universal Champion, is set to face Seth Rollins at SummerSlam. The Beast Incarnate had a memorable night at Extreme Rules where he cashed in the Money in the Bank to win the Universal Championship. The victory at Extreme Rules meant that Lesnar is now a three-time Universal Champion.
Lesnar has been in the Universal Title picture for a long time. After defeating Goldberg at WrestleMania 33, the Beast held the belt for 504 days, which was the longest World Title reign in the modern era. Moreover, his second title reign lasted six months before he lost to Seth Rollins at WrestleMania 35.
Rollins pinned Lesnar at WrestleMania and the latter will be seeking revenge at SummerSlam. Since the two men have had a long rivalry, it is likely to culminate at the the pay-per-view. Here we discuss three potential challengers for Lesnar after his rivalry with Seth Rollins comes to an end:
#3 Daniel Bryan
Bryan and Lesnar are no strangers to each other as they crossed paths last year. The two men had a match at Survivor Series where they locked horns in a Champion vs Champion bout. While a large number of fans speculated an easy victory for the Beast, Bryan went toe-to-toe with Lesnar and put in a scintillating performance. After a spectacular battle, Lesnar managed to pin Bryan for the victory.
Though Bryan and Lesnar have faced each other in the past, they have never enjoyed a lengthy rivalry. Moreover, Lesnar's advocate Paul Heyman considers the former as the best performer of Vince McMahon's company. Thus, a feud with Lesnar could be on the cards.
