Seth Rollins defeated Brock Lesnar to once again become WWE Universal Champion at SummerSlam this past weekend.
We saw the newly crowned Universal Champion compete last night on RAW against WWE United States Champion AJ Styles. Eventually the match would be thrown out after the other members of The OC (Gallows & Anderson) attacked Rollins. This brought out Ricochet, and then Braun Strowman, which appears to have been a setup for Clash of Champions.
It now looks like we have an idea who is next in line to face Seth Rollins for the Universal Championship at WWE’s next PPV Event, Clash of Champions from Charlotte, North Carolina.
According to Dave Meltzer on the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, the next challenger for the Universal Title at Clash of Champions will be Braun Strowman.
“It is Braun Strowman in the Charlotte main event, unless Vince changes his mind, but I don’t think he’s going to. I think that one is pretty much — which is weird because they do everything to make Seth into a babyface and they bring in Braun who’s going to be a super babyface the way that they brought him in and just because he’s been kinda forgotten about for a few weeks just because they didn’t have anything on Summerslam for him.”
“So the people were going to react big to him. You know, yeah they need some contenders and I guess he’s the guy. You know, there’s nobody else. I mean, they could do Drew, but I guess they’re not. I guess they figured that Drew’s been mired so long in this thing with Cedric that you know he’s not quite ready for that spot.”
WWE’s Clash of Champions PPV will take place on September 15th, 2019 from the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina.
It should be noted that if Braun Strowman does indeed end up facing Seth Rollins for the Universal Title at Clash of Champions, that this would be a “home match” for Strowman, as he is from the Lenoir, NC area which is less than a couple hours outside of Charlotte.
