Brock Lesnar lost the Universal Championship to Seth Rollins at SummerSlam, and it sounds like their feud may be nearing its conclusion.
Paul Heyman took to Twitter and said WWE informed him and Lesnar that there is no rematch clause. Therefore, the Beast Incarnate will not be automatically granted another crack at the Universal Championship. He'll simply have to earn a rematch down the road.
Lesnar didn't formally receive a rematch when he lost to Rollins at WrestleMania 35, either. Rather, Lesnar had to win the men's Money in the Bank ladder match to receive another crack at the title.
Two months later, Lesnar would cash in and defeat Rollins at the Extreme Rules pay-per-view. The Architect and Becky Lynch had just defended their respective titles against Baron Corbin and Lacey Evans in a mixed tag match, thus allowing Lesnar to cash in for an easy victory.
Rollins, like Lesnar, wasn't granted a formal rematch for the title. He actually had to win a 10-man battle royal to become the No. 1 contender for Lesnar's Universal Championship at SummerSlam. This time, Rollins succeeded and pulled off the extremely rare feat of taking down Lesnar twice.
With no rematch clause, it means that Lesnar will simply have to win a No. 1 contender's match of some sort to earn another chance vs. Rollins. But it's more likely that WWE is simply wrapping up the Lesnar-Rollins feud. They've already competed in three championship matches - two of them coming in marquee WWE pay-per-view shows, so there's really nothing else to add in this rivalry and storyline.
What This Means
It'll be interesting to see what happens next with Lesnar and Rollins. Both are in need of fresh feuds, and if WWE is moving on from the Rollins-Lesnar storyline, it means the latter probably won't be in the championship picture for a while. Baron Corbin and Drew McIntyre are prime candidates to clash for Rollins' title now, but it's anybody's guess as to which superstar(s) could clash with next.
