While backstage reports have confirmed that Brock Lesnar is scheduled to defend his WWE Championship at the upcoming SummerSlam PPV, the same has yet to be announced by the company officially.
Officials have been playing the storyline that Lesnar is not interested in defending the Universal Championship against anyone at this point and they continued this build on Extreme Rules as well.
The Raw General Manager Kurt Angle appeared in a backstage segment tonight and the former World Champion claimed that he is tired of this situation with Brock Lesnar.
Continuing on the topic, he said Paul Heyman and Lesnar will appear on this week’s Raw to work out terms of his next title defense and if they don’t, then the Beast will be stripped of the Universal Title:

As we saw on Extreme Rules, Bobby Lashley defeated Roman Reigns clean and it appears that WWE is building a match between the former Bellator Star and the current Title holder.
