Seth Rollins wins WWE Universal Title, defeats Lesnar
Seth Rollins defeated Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam on Sunday night to win the Universal Championship for the second time.
The Architect built the perfect strategy to dethrone the champion. He used his speed advantage to relentlessly attack Lesnar and countered out of numerous German suplex attempts.
The Beast Incarnate nearly picked up the win, though. He had Rollins in position for the F-5, only for him to wriggle free and hit a super-kick. Sensing his opportunity, the challenger lined up and delivered the Stomp for the victory.
In addition to being a WrestleMania 35 rematch, Sunday’s bout was also a repeat from Extreme Rules when Lesnar successfully cashed in the Money in the Bank contract on Rollins to become a three-time universal champion.
