Raw general manager Kurt Angle announced Monday night a Fatal 5-Way match at Extreme Rules will determine the No. 1 contender for Brock Lesnar’s Universal Championship.

WWE shared a graphic with the five combatants:

The American Airlines Center in Dallas already announced Lesnar will put the title on the line at Great Balls of Fire on July 9.  

The Fatal 5-Way may have always been WWE’s plan for Lesnar’s first title challenger after he won the belt from Goldberg at WrestleMania 33. But one can’t help but wonder whether Braun Strowman’s injury forced an audible.

WWE announced Monday afternoon Strowman underwent elbow surgery and could be out for up to six months.

Any one of the five wrestlers in the main event at Extreme Rules could be an intriguing opponent for Lesnar on paper. Even Reigns vs. Lesnar could be entertaining after they put together a great match at WrestleMania 31.
