As noted, Brock Lesnar will defend the WWE Universal Championship at July 9th pay-per-view Great Balls of Fire from Dallas, Texas..
Meltzer said it’s likely that Finn Balor and Seth Rollins will face Lesnar before next year’s Wrestlemania, but it’s believed Braun Strowman will be Lesnar’s opponent in July. WWE Great Balls of Fire will mark Lesnar’s first defense of the WWE Universal Championship.
When Brock Lesnar won the WWE Championship the last time at SummerSlam in 2014, he only worked two matches before losing the title at WrestleMania 31 to Seth Rollins (who cashed in his Money In The Bank briefcase and actually pinned Lesnar’s opponent, Roman Reigns, to win the title). Meltzer noted that Lesnar will be around a lot more for this championship reign than his seven month 2014-2015 run.
