Before either world championship was defended at WWE Extreme Rules 2019, Paul Heyman showed up to tease that either WWE Champion Kofi Kingston or Universal Champion Seth Rollins could have to deal with his client, Brock Lesnar, in addition to their scheduled opponent. After alluding to his ECW roots (Extreme Rules was in Philadelphia), the real-life executive director of Raw warned that Lesnar would cash in the Money In The Bank briefcase he controversially won on the PPV of the same name – or he could be lying.
Kofi Kingston managed to retain his title against Samoa Joe without dealing with The Beast Incarnate. Seth Rollins, however, wasn’t so lucky.
But after the show’s main event, it was revealed that Heyman had been telling the truth. Real-life couple Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch defended both the Universal Championship and Raw Women’s Championship against Baron Corbin and Lacey Evans in a Last Chance Winners Take All mixed tag team Extreme Rules match. After Corbin hit the End of Days on Lynch, Rollins snapped and beat him with a kendo stick. He hit Corbin with three Stomps before pinning him for the win.
As you can see in the video above, before Rollins could even pose victoriously with the red belt, Lesnar appeared on the entrance ramp, Heyman in tow with the Money In The Bank briefcase. Lesnar German suplexed Rollins twice before Heyman informed the referee that his client was cashing in. After the title match officially began, Lesnar hit Rollins with an F5 and pinned him to win the Universal Championship for the third time.
Where do Lesnar, Rollins, and the Universal Championship go from here? Give us your takes in the comments!
