Raw General Manager Kurt Angle issued an ultimatum to WWE Universal champion Brock Lesnar last night at Extreme Rules, giving him three options: come to Raw, agree on a date to defend the title, or get stripped of the Universal title.
Lesnar has been missing in action from WWE television since the Greatest Royal Rumble event in Saudi Arabia where he defeated Roman Reigns in a steel cage match. Since then, an angle has played out where Lesnar has refused to wrestle anyone on the roster since none of them are a box office attraction like him.
“You spring this on my client, the reigning defending undisputed Universal Heavyweight Champion @BrockLesnar and me with no notice? No warning? No letter of admonishment? Just an unwarranted ultimatum, so @RealKurtAngle can look tough in negotiations,” stated Paul Heyman in a tweet.
Brock Lesnar will be wrestling and defending the Universal title at SummerSlam although against who, at this point, remains unclear.
