New Universal Champion Brock Lesnar To Appear On WWE Raw

The champ is here...

He no longer has the Money in the Bank briefcase to treat like a boombox, so Dancin' Brock may be no more. Instead, Brock Lesnar will just have to settle for toting around the WWE Universal title, kicking off his third reign on Sunday night in Philadelphia, after sucessfully cashing the briefcase in on Seth Rollins.

Lesnar is scheduled to appear on Raw Monday night at Nassau Coliseum on Long Island. The storyline tease, from WWE's preview of tonight's show, concerns Rollins, and beginning his task of working his way back to getting a shot at new champion Lesnar.

From the preview: "Seth Rollins & Becky Lynch prevailed at WWE Extreme Rules, but Brock Lesnar left Philly with The Architect’s Universal Championship thanks to a long-teased Money in the Bank cash-in that finally came to fruition. Can Rollins crawl his way back up the mountain? Tune in to Raw, live at 8/7 C on USA Network to find out."

Other storyline teases for tonight's show include the aftermath of the United States title match and who AJ Styles' first challenger may be, as well as the fall out from Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross' inability to become co-SmackDown Women's champions at Extreme Rules.
