Brock Lesnar hasn’t defended his Universal Championship since April, but Paul Heyman confirmed on Raw this week that Lesnar will be putting the belt on the line at SummerSlam next month.

Next week on Raw, Bobby Lashley will face Roman Reigns and the winner will earn a shot at Brock Lesnar’s belt.

According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, there’s speculation that WWE might book a triple threat for the Universal Title match which would see Lesnar defend against Roman Reigns and Bobby Lashley.

Reigns beating Lashley on Raw could potentially devalue Lashley’s win over Reigns at Extreme Rules, and the idea is that a triple threat would likely receive a better reaction from the crowd rather than a singles match featuring Roman Reigns.
