Brock Lesnar vs Seth Rollins at WWE SummerSlam 2019 was an event which many people ‘called’ beforehand. It was expected that Brock IS going to drop the belt because he has already held it for a combined total of over 600 days – the longest reign of any Universal Title holder so far. However, what’s next for ‘The Beast’ in WWE?
Let us take a closer look and see what’s next for Brock. Word in the rumor mill suggests he might be hanging up his boots soon.
I don't care how Brock Lesnar has been used in the past, I care about how he's being used TODAY. #SummerSlam

Lesnar Update: Is This His Last Match?
Yes and No. Yes, this will be his last match for quite some time now. Don’t expect The Beast to wrestle anytime before Survivor Series now as he might just take off for a few months and return to face a new challenger. He might also head to WWE SmackDown where he can challenge for the WWE Title. Nevertheless, this was indeed his last match for Universal Title for a while.
Brock moving to SmackDown Live is something that many have been second-guessing because his advocate Paul Heyman is the real-life creative head of WWE RAW. Will the WWE split the pair? We’ll find out soon enough.
Seth Rollins showed so much emotion after he won the Universal Championship last night! I'm glad he beat Brock Lesnar

When Will Brock Lesnar Retire?
Given that he wrestles like 10 matches a year and only on PPVs, Brock Lesnar can go on for another 3-4 years without any problems. Personally, we believe that WWE doesn’t need to put him in all title matches as he is already a huge name so anyone who faces him will get an instant ‘rub’.
