When a Superstar intentionally provokes Brock Lesnar, it typically doesnt work out too well for them. However, Samoa Joe showed zero fear in the face of the reigning, defending Universal Champion last Monday night, when he started a brawl with The Beast Incarnate that required virtually the entire locker room to restore the peace or at least to pry the behemoths apart.
Joe put a punctuation mark on the brutality with a swift superkick that momentarily staggered The Anomaly and, later in the night, he fearlessly affirmed that he will put Lesnar to sleep on Sunday, July 9, at the WWE Great Balls of Fire pay-per-view. Will his prediction ring true?In a sit-down interview with Corey Graves this past Monday night, former Raw Womens Champion Bayley opened up about her defeat to current titleholder Alexa Bliss in a Kendo Stick on a Pole Match at WWE Extreme Rules, saying, Im not here to put bruises on peoples backs or to send people to the hospital. Im here to put smiles on peoples faces.
It remains to be seen whether that mindset to be the best, her way will help her overcome the increasingly aggressive competitors in the Raw Womens division, including Alexa, Nia Jax, the returning Emma and even Bayleys longtime friend, Sasha Banks. Can The Huggable One walk into next years WrestleMania with the Raw Womens Title around her waist, as she did at this years Show of Shows?
This past Monday night, the anticipated 2-out-of-3 Falls Raw Tag Team Championship Match between The Hardy Boyz and Cesaro & Sheamus ended in a double count-out, making the match a draw and leading to a title retention for the defending brawlers.
Matt commented on the questionable victory for The Celtic Warrior and The Swiss Cyborg later that night, calling their self-applied moniker of The Bar ironic given the circumstances.
And yet, having lost their rematch, The Hardy Boyz will need to earn their next opportunity at Team Reds tandem titles. How will The Hardys earn an opportunity for retribution against Cesaro & Sheamus? Their new quest begins on Raw.
Last week, when Seth Rollins confronted Bray Wyatt and called him a coward, The Eater of Worlds gave The Kingslayer a taste of his power, vanishing from the ring and telling Rollins from the TitanTron, You may have found the will to slay a king, but a god lives forever.
Will Rollins soon regret gaining the attention of one of the eeriest Superstars in WWE history? In fact, might he regret it as soon as this Monday night on Raw, live at 8/7 C on USA Network?
