Brock Lesnar to return to Raw next week
Before Roman Reigns defeated Bobby Lashley on Raw to earn the right to challenge Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship at SummerSlam, Paul Heyman took to Twitter to reveal that his client, The Beast Incarnate himself, will return to the red brand next Monday night to address his next opponent face-to-face.
“My phone has been blowing up all day with people wanting to know, ‘Who do I think is going to win tonight, Bobby Lashley or Roman Reigns?,’” Heyman said in a video posted to his Twitter account Monday afternoon. “And the truth is, I couldn’t care less. Because the winner of tonight’s match on Raw is ultimately the loser who’s gonna get their a** handed to them by Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam.”
He continued, “And if you don’t take my word for it, then you can take the word of the reigning, defending, undisputed Universal Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar, who will tell his victim these very words next week, live on Raw. And that’s not a prediction: That’s a spoiler.”
Also on Raw, Seth Rollins faces Drew McIntyre one-on-one, Finn Bálor clashes with Constable Baron Corbin and Ronda Rousey returns from her suspension.
