The main event for the Battleground pay-per-view was set last night on Monday Night Raw and WWE World Heavyweight champion Seth Rollins will be defending the gold against the returning Brock Lesnar!
Lesnar came out during the final segment of the night after The Authority announced that Rollins’ opponent was chosen to be “best for business.” After Triple H eliminated Joey Mercury, Jamie Noble, Kane, and Dean Ambrose from the list of contenders, Rollins interrupted and said that it doesn’t really matter who it is as there’s nobody on the roster who is capable of taking that title away from him. Cue Lesnar’s music.
Brock did not utter a word, and neither did his advocate Paul Heyman, but the stare down with Rollins was enough for the WWE champion to back off.
Rollins won the WWE title at WrestleMania 31 this year by cashing his Money in the Bank briefcase during the main event between Lesnar and Roman Reigns and eventually pinned Roman Reigns after a Curb Stomp while Lesnar was out following a Reigns spear.
The next night, Lesnar wanted his rematch but Rollins ran away and that led Lesnar to destroy everyone in his path. Stephanie McMahon suspended Lesnar indefinitely afterward.
