WWE is teasing a confrontation between Universal champion Brock Lesnar and Seth Rollins on the March 18 edition of Monday Night Raw.
“One week after Seth Rollins’ victory over Brock Lesnar’s longtime training partner, Shelton Benjamin, the Universal Champion comes to Raw with the red brand’s most prestigious prize in tow. What will happen when The Beast Incarnate and “The Beastslayer” meet under the same roof? Will Rollins bring the fight to Lesnar three weeks before their anticipated battle at WrestleMania?”
Paul Heyman announced on March 10 that The Beast Incarnate is set to return to the red brand and for many fans, it couldn’t have come sooner. WrestleMania 35 is less than a month away and the company has yet to really build the story between Seth and Lesnar.
The only shot that’s been fired came on January 28, when Rollins decided to use his Royal Rumble title shot against Bock on The Grandest Stage of Them All.
Lesnar hit Rollins with five F-5’s that night and left The Kingslayer for dead in the ring. Since that time, Lesnar has been missing in action once again. But the time build the hype is now, as the company inches closer to WrestleMania 35.
Many fans thought that Roman Reigns would be added to the mix, but the returning Big Dog has endorsed his Shield brother against the Universal champion.
