An update has emerged on plans for the newly crowned WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins following Night of Champions.

Rollins defeated AJ Styles to become the inaugural WWE World Heavyweight Champion in the Saudi Arabia premium live event that took place on Saturday May 27.

Speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer has now ruled out one rumored imminent opponent for Rollins, saying:

“They are doing another (Brock Lesnar vs Cody Rhodes) match, I don’t know if it’ll be in London (Money in the Bank) or it’ll be in Detroit (SummerSlam), but they are doing another match.

“And I did check and there is nothing in the cards right now for Lesnar with Seth Rollins. They could do it later, but there is nothing in the plans right now. It’s just Lesnar with Cody.”
