5 Superstars WWE should put the Universal Championship on after Brock Lesnar
Brock Lesnar won the Universal Championship following the shocking, yet hopefully, temporary exit of Roman Reigns from the company. Also, for some time Lesnar's involvement in WrestleMania 35 was unknown, but it has now been confirmed that he'll work at it. Regardless, Lesnar is suspected to leave WWE following this year's WrestleMania event, which means he could likely drop the title to someone at WM35.
So, today in this feature I will guide you through a list of those superstars who WWE should put the Universal Title on after the departure of "The Beast Incarnate." Moreover, before you get ready to see who'll be those superstars, let me make one thing clear, this list is written from the time scale of WrestleMania 35-36.
Also after reading this feature, for those of you who might think as to why Finn Balor and Lars Sullivan didn't make it to the list, there's a reason for that. For Balor, I think he's going to switch brands and move to SmackDown Live this year when Superstar Shake-up takes place, which rules out even slight possibility of him becoming the Universal Champion once again...
And for Sullivan, I think he isn't going to get the hold of Universal Championship coming straight from NXT and also because of the recent news regarding him and his mental health.
#1 Seth Rollins
There's a reason why Seth Rollins is mentioned first on this list to win the Universal Championship after Brock Lesnar. As you already know, Rollins is rooted to win this year's men's Royal Rumble match and then go on to face Lesnar in the main event of WrestleMania 35. Undoubtedly, Rollins will walk out of Met-Life stadium with the WWE's flagship show's top prize.
Moreover, the two time WWE Champion already has a history with "The Beast Incarnate", as they were involved in a quarrel for the WWE Championship a few years back. Therefore, it'll be interesting to see how WWE will book a rivalry between two if they want to make Rollins face Lensar at WM 35 to make things look even fresher.
That being said, a match like this is a hard one to pull off at WrestleMania, as fans might reject it if not booked properly. See last year's Lesnar's match with Roman Reigns at WM 34 for reference. Let's wait and see what happens on 27th January and thereafter.
