In recent years, men's and women's Money in the Bank ladder match winners haven't waited around long to cash in their contracts, and it sounds like it'll be the same case for Brock Lesnar.
The Beast Incarnate made a last-minute appearance at this Sunday's pay-per-view and managed to snatch the briefcase. And according to Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio (h/t Ringside News), it seems like Lesnar is going to cash in his contract for a match against Seth Rollins at the June 7 Super ShowDown event in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
Rollins pulled off the big upset at WrestleMania 35, using a series of curb stomps to defeat Lesnar in a matter of minutes. The Architect became the new Universal Champion and had a successful defense against A.J. Styles this Sunday - but now he's rekindling his rivalry with Lesnar.
Lesnar and Paul Heyman addressed the WWE Universe on this week's episode of Monday Night Raw, with the latter issuing a warning to Rollins - who would come out for a brief confrontation.
So if Lesnar is truly set to cash in for a match against Rollins at Super ShowDown, that means both MITB winners will have used up their opportunities in such short time yet again. Bayley won the women's ladder match on Sunday and cashed it in later on in the show, defeating SmackDown Women's Champion Charlotte Flair - who had just taken the title from Becky Lynch.
Last year, Alexa Bliss also cashed in her MITB contract on the same night she won it, defeating Nia Jax (who was defending against Ronda Rousey), to become the new Raw Women's Champion. In 2016, Dean Ambrose won the ladder match and cashed in on the same night to take the WWE World Heavyweight Championship from Seth Rollins.
What This Means
It should be noted that Lesnar is reportedly planning to retire after WrestleMania 36, so it remains to be seen if he'll receive another run with the Universal Championship. It wouldn't make much sense from a creative standpoint, but Vince McMahon has happily put the belt on Lesnar twice now. We''ll just have to wait and see how this cash-in goes down, and if The Architect can outlast Lesnar again.
