Are tensions heating up between Team Red and Team Blue?
The wake of the turmoil created when Randy Orton and Brock Lesnar completely disregarded the brand split and attacked each other on Raw and SmackDown Live last week – prior to their Aug. 21 showdown at SummerSlam – Raw General Manager Mick Foley invited SmackDown Live General Manager Daniel Bryan to Monday Night Raw to discuss the situation.
While things started on a very cordial note between the two GMs, it was soon clear that Foley was rather annoyed by a crack Bryan made about Raw’s new Universal Title on the premiere episode of “Talking Smack” – exclusively on WWE Network. Unfortunately, Rusev interrupted before the matter could be settled, leaving the WWE Universe to wonder what, if anything, will happen next. Will Foley show up on SmackDown to finish his point? Will other Superstars follow the example of Orton and Lesnar? Or, perhaps more importantly, will this unresolved issue serve as a catalyst that helps transform the friendly competition between Team Red and Team Blue into a more exasperated situation? Find out tonight at 8/7 C on SmackDown Live.
