Brock Lesnar will defend the WWE Universal Championship at the July 9 WWE Great Balls of Fire pay-per-view event. The show will be held in Dallas, Texas at American Airlines Center.
Powell’s POV: The video noted that Lesnar would defend his title “for the very first time.” If that’s the case, then WWE is abandoning the storyline 30-day rule. It’s not the first time and it won’t be the last, but going three months without a title defense is pushing it. Meanwhile, TNA pay-per-views had a Phil Collins theme with Genesis and Against All Odds. Will WWE double down on this Jerry Lee Lewis theme by going with “WWE Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On” for a future pay-per-view? One can only hope.
