Let us take a look at the top 8 WWE News & Professional Wrestling stories of the hour:
8. Brock Lesnar Set To Appear on Next Week’s Raw, Will “The Demon King” Appear As Well?
“The Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar will appear on next week’s episode of Raw along with Paul Heyman. It should be noted that next week’s episode if the go-home edition of Raw before SummerSlam 2016, so one can expect Heyman to give a final warning to Randy Orton about what’s going to happen to “The Viper” in the biggest event of the summer.
Speaking of SummerSlam 2016, the previous plan was for Rollins & Balor to main event the PPV as the 1st ever Universal Champion will be crowned in that match, but now there are plans for Orton & Lesnar to main event the show. That’s the possible reason behind Orton/Lesnar bout being billed as “15 years in the making” & “The Biggest Fight of the Summer”.
WWE is teasing that “The Man” Seth Rollins will call out Finn Balor’s alter-ego, The Demon King, on next week’s episode of Raw. It should be noted that Balor will wrestle as “The Demon King” at SummerSlam 2016.
