WWE’s new PPV name, Brock Lesnar WWE Univeral Championship match announced

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.

  1. WWE did this the last time Lesnar was champ too, which hurt the credibility of the title. When he was WWE Champion last time, he went FOUR months without wrestling, when he defended the title against John Cena at the September Night of Champions PPV and then didn’t wrestle again til he defended it against Cena and Seth Rollins at the Royal Rumble PPV. WWE doesn’t realize thta 3 months without being defended will kill what little credibility the new Universal Championship has.

    • I don’t think it was as much in reference to his first title defense, as to this being the first “Great Balls of Fire”-named Network special.

  2. Brock Lesnar isn’t the WWE Champion.
