The anticipation is much higher with the upcoming episode of WWE Raw which might set the tone high for the Summerslam event. We will get to know about the mystery text sender to the General Manager, Kurt Angle. Plus, a number one contender’s match for the Universal Championship match will be contested between Roman Reigns and Samoa Joe which will decide the main event of this year’s Summerslam.
Now, as per the previous reports from Dave Meltzer, he stated that Roman Reigns is going to be the challenger for Brock Lesnar at the biggest event of the summer. Hence, he automatically possesses better chances to come up victorious in the upcoming match against the Samoan Submission Machine.
Plus, the chances of Samoa Joe coming up on top can’t be ruled out, as well. The beast was much pleased with the performance of Joe at the Great Balls of Fire PPV. His work ethics amazed the beast so much that he never ruled out the possibility of having a rematch, for sure. The creative also wanted to give him a second shot after they were pleased with Joe’s performance.
Now, ruling out these two previous scenarios, a breaking news was provided by the Dirty Sheets Podcast regarding the main event of Summerslam. It stated that the original planning of the creative to have a multi-superstar match for the Universal Championship is still intact.
This means there will be a fatal-4-way match contested on August 20th where Brock Lesnar defends his title. Apart from Joe, Finn Balor and Seth Rollins was the formerly ones to feature in this match. However, in the current situation, Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman are likely to replace these two and get included in the title hunt.
The source also declared that the creative changed their intentions to host a match between Braun Strowman and Brock Lesnar at the biggest event of the summer. But, it was for momentarily after which they agreed to go ahead with the fatal-4-way match. With that being said, it will be interesting to see how this match shapes up starting from Raw. The crowd will also wait to witness Strowman returning after Roman Reigns’ brutal assault.
