Back on the July 15th episode of RAW, Rollins beat Roman Reigns, Baron Corbin, Cesaro, Braun Strowman, Bobby Lashley, Rey Mysterio, Sami Zayn, Randy Orton, and SmackDown Tag Team Champion Big E in a Cross Brand All-Star Battle Royal.

As a result, Rollins earned the right to challenge Lesnar for his title at this year’s SummerSlam.

Lesnar became champion again once he successfully cashed in his Money in the Bank briefcase at the Extreme Rules pay-per-view event in July to beat Rollins to become champion once again.

With Lesnar working a part-time schedule, there’s no word yet on when he’ll be making his next title defense.

Historically, WWE books Lesnar to work the Survivor Series pay-per-view event. this show will take place on November 24, 2019 at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois.

Lesnar won the Money in the Bank contract back in May and after teasing it a few times, had not been seen on WWE programming since June.
