WWE heads to for tonight’s episode of RAW. Below are the focus pints.
The Conqueror cometh
The “uncrowned” Universal Champion is coming for the throne. After being denied Brock Lesnar’s coveted title at WrestleMania and WWE Greatest Royal Rumble, Roman Reigns has earned another opportunity to take down The Conqueror, this time at SummerSlam in Brooklyn.
As Lesnar’s advocate Paul Heyman revealed this past Monday, The Beast Incarnate will bring his title to Cincinnati for Raw, where Reigns will be waiting.
Finn Bálor sizes up The Constable
Constable Baron Corbin seems pretty bitter that Finn Bálor beat him at WWE Extreme Rules, going so far as to relocate the Irishman’s dressing room to a children’s playhouse this past Monday night. Of course, Bálor is a kid at heart, and he took the attempted insult in stride. There will be no smiles, however, when he takes on the Team Red Constable one-on-one.
Will WWE’s first Universal Champion make Corbin regret his repeated insults, or will The Constable abuse his power — and size advantage — in this WWE Extreme Rules rematch?
The Baddest Challenger on the Planet
Ronda Rousey’s extended suspension is officially over, and her Raw Women’s Championship opportunity against Alexa Bliss at SummerSlam is still a go.
When we last saw Rousey on the red brand two weeks ago, The Baddest Woman on the Planet had violated her Raw ban to attack both The Goddess and her BFF Mickie James. (And, yes, that was genuine fear in Alexa’s eyes when Rousey went on the offensive.)
Little Miss Bliss might need to keep her head on a swivel this Monday night when Raw gets “Rowdy” once again.
The Architect looks to deconstruct Drew McIntrye
This past Monday night, Seth Rollins & Finn Bálor defeated Intercontinental Champion Dolph Ziggler & Drew McIntyre when The Kingslayer pinned The Showoff, earning himself a rematch for the workhorse title at SummerSlam in the process.
However, before he battles to reclaim the Intercontinental Title, Rollins will take on Ziggler’s imposing associate McIntyre this Monday night. Can Rollins build his momentum en route to The Biggest Event of the Summer?
