On This Day In WWE History – The Undertaker makes an epic return seeking revenge for a shocking loss

On July 19, 2015, WWE presented the Battleground pay-per-view. The event was headlined by Brock Lesnar and Seth Rollins as they battled for the WWE Championship.

Seth Rollins won the title just a few months prior at WrestleMania 31. He cashed in his Money in the Bank briefcase during the main event between Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar after both men were battered. Michael Cole infamously called this moment “the heist of the century.” Heading into Battleground, Lesnar hoped to avenge the wrongs done by The Visionary.

The bout went like most Brock Lesnar matches do. He was dominant, but The Architect showed flashes of offense. In the end, it seemed as though Brock Lesnar was about to win the title about eight minutes into the match. However, a surprise was waiting in the wings.
