Brock Lesnar: The Beast set to cash in his MITB briefcase at WWE Extreme Rules this coming Sunday.
In case you’ve forgotten, Brock Lesnar won the money in the bank briefcase this year. The Beast earned the right to the championship contract after he entered the match as the mystery 8th wrestler. He pushed Ali, who was perched on top of the ladder, and plucked the briefcase for himself in the main-event of the Money in the Bank Pay per View back in May.

The fans groaned at the prospect of seeing another championship reign from Lesnar. The Beast is infamous for keeping the title hostage and rarely showing up on TV. However, Brock turned the fan reaction around by showing tremendous personality with the briefcase like he hasn’t shown in years. The humor surrounding him eventually died as he brutalized Seth Rollins ahead of Super Showdown. The Beast however, refused to cash in, announcing instead that the cash in would take place at Jeddah.
Rollins braved Corbin’s attempt at usurping him as the Universal Champion. To his dismay though, Lesnar walked out with the briefcase. True to his words, The Beast had arrived to dethrone the Architect. However, Rollins took advantage of a Paul Heyman slip up, Rollins attacked Lesnar and thwarted his cash in attempt.
Brock is yet to be seen on WWE TV since. However, his advocate Paul Heyman announced on the latest episode of Raw that he would cash in his briefcase at the upcoming Extreme Rules pay per view. He then admitted to be screwing around with the fans before adding that only he and Lesnar knew when the cash in would take place.
Will he or won’t he?
So, will Lesnar cash in this Sunday? Most likely not. The declaration may be in line with the multiple announcements of cash ins the WWE had when Brock had just won the contract. Keeping in mind the ridiculously below average attendance at Stomping Grounds, this could be desperate measures that the WWE have resorted to have a respectable attendance for their upcoming Pay per view.
Extreme Rules will take place on July 14, 2019, at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It will stream live on the WWE network.
