The RAW side Extreme Rules was better than expected. Let us take a look at it fallout on Monday Night RAW.
Does Lesnar Get Stripped of His Universal Title?
Angle complements all the RAW superstars saying that they are all hard working and show a lot of dedication. The one person who does not deserve any praise is the Universal Champion himself, Brock Lesnar. He is about to strip Lesnar of his title as he hasn’t heard anything from him despite his ultimatum. When Heyman makes his way to the ring and asks him to hold on. Heyman goes on to tell that contrary to popular belief, Lesnar does care about being the Universal Champ but would like to challenge for the UFC title while still being the champion here in WWE as well. Angle says that unless he can guarantee Lesnar will defend his title at Summerslam, he is going to strip his title. Heyman confirms that Lesnar will defend his title at Summerslam. Heyman goes on to mock the WWE universe and says that all they need to do now is find Lesnar’s next victim.
Bobby Lashley comes out on cue and says that he had two goals when he returned to WWE. He accomplished the first last night when he defeated Reigns. The second is to beat Lesnar for the Universal Championship. Drew McIntyre then joins him and tells him that it is his turn as he helped Ziggler retain his championship and this is phase two of his plans (What?). They are joined by Seth Rollins, Elias, and Finn Balor who all stake their claims.
Roman Reigns comes out last to a deafening roar of boos. He thankfully says that he does not have any valid reasons to stake his claim but he wants a fight tonight. Angles says he has a plan to decide Lesnar’s opponent. There will be two triple threat matches between the six men today. The winners will face each other the next week to determine the one to face Lesnar at Summerslam.
Review: Finally WWE addresses the elephant in the room. At least now we have a clear cut plan for the most prestigious title on RAW. We just wish Reigns wasn’t involved. Also, creative could have come up with something better for McIntyre. The segment was good though and a nice way to start RAW.
