After he is done with Brock Lesnar, it seems as if Seth Rollins will have Drew McIntyre to deal with for a month or two.
Paul Heyman informed fans that Brock Lesnar would be cashing in his Money In The Bank contract at Extreme Rules. So we really shouldn't have been as surprised as we were when The Beast came to the ring and took the Universal Title from Seth Rollins. Thus began the third and current Universal Title reign of Lesnar.
24 hours later, ten Superstars were given the opportunity to earn a spot opposite Lesnar at SummerSlam. The likes of Roman Reigns, Randy Orton, and Rey Mysterio. However, it was Rollins who stood tall come the end of the night. Who better to go up against the former UFC Champion than the man who managed to slay him at WrestleMania?

That means the SummerSlam main event is already set. But what comes after SummerSlam? Judging by local ads for shows leading up to WWE's Hell In A Cell PPV in September, Rollins' next port of call after Lesnar will be Drew McIntyre. Whether Rollins will be Universal Champion or not by that point is currently unclear. We're hoping so as both men are more than worthy of doing battle for Raw's richest prize.
If Lesnar's more recent world title reigns are anything to go by, chances are he will still be champion once SummerSlam has been and gone. If so, who knows when we will see Lesnar and the title again after that? Since SmackDown will be moving to Fox soon after, you would think WWE would want a Universal Champion on TV regularly, even if they do remain on Raw most of the time.
When McIntyre first returned to WWE's main roster, the Scot went quite a while without losing a single match. Fast forward to now, and the former NXT Champion has lost much of the mystique that surrounded him. Providing he has a good build between now and SummerSlam, and a big win on the PPV, he'd be the perfect candidate to challenge a newly crowned Rollins heading into a new era for WWE.
