• Major RAW Feud Not Over After SummerSlam 2018 Outcome
In their preview for tonight’s episode of RAW, WWE hinted that the feud between Roman Reigns & Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship isn’t over.
Below is what WWE posted:
Who is coming for Universal Champion Roman Reigns?
“At SummerSlam, The Big Dog finally bested The Beast to once again lay claim to the Universal Championship, but when he returns to his yard tonight, who will be waiting to try and take it from him?
Although Brock Lesnar is known for his frequent absences from the red brand, it is reasonable to assume that The Conqueror will set his sights on Reigns sooner or later. In addition, after making his presence known last night in SummerSlam’s main event, Braun Strowman could very well make good on his promise to cash in his Money in the Bank contract.”
Speaking of Reigns, we noted earlier how Reigns teased during a post-SummerSlam 2018 interview that he might defend the Universal Title on tonight’s RAW.
Below is what Reigns said:
“The main thing is to be able to get through Monday. You know, to be able to get through tomorrow, Monday Night RAW, we’re back here in the Barclays Centre. So mainly I wanna be what I said I was gonna be – a fighting champion.
So who knows…maybe we’ll put this thing (looks at the Universal Title) up for grabs tomorrow. If it happens to be Braun Strowman coming out there, I’ll be ready for any test that pops up on me.”
