Seth Rollins is still the WWE Universal Champion but things didn’t go as originally planned for him thanks to Brock Lesnar.

WWE held the RAW Season Premiere episode on Monday night from Phoenix, Arizona at the Talking Stick Resort Arena. This is where Rollins was supposed to defend his title against Rey Mysterio in a high priority match on the flagship show of the company. 

In the opening segment, Mysterio was cutting a promo when Lesnar appeared and hit a series of F5’s. He would then attack Mysterio’s son, Dominick.
