Brock Lesnar vs. Seth Rollins rematch official for WWE SummerSlam


Seth Rollins will get his rematch against Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam.

Rollins won a number one contender's battle royal on tonight's Raw and will challenge for Lesnar's Universal Championship at SummerSlam in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on August 11. Rollins last eliminated Randy Orton to win the battle royal.

Roman Reigns, Braun Strowman, Baron Corbin, Rey Mysterio, Sami Zayn, Big E, Bobby Lashley, and Cesaro were the other participants in the battle royal.

After winning the battle royal, Rollins cut a promo where he spoke directly to Lesnar and promised to stomp Lesnar's head into the mat and win the Universal title at SummerSlam. Lesnar teased coming into the ring with a steel chair, but he hit the apron with the chair and walked back up the ramp.

Lesnar cashed in his Money in the Bank briefcase to win the Universal title from Rollins at the end of Extreme Rules on Sunday. Prior to that, Rollins had been Universal Champion since defeating Lesnar at WrestleMania 35.

SummerSlam is taking place at Toronto's Scotiabank Arena. Becky Lynch defending her Raw Women's Championship against Natalya has also been announced for the pay-per-view.
