Last week’s episode of Monday Night Raw featured a scathing promo from Roman Reigns against his SummerSlam opponent Brock Lensar.
Lesnar will defend his Universal Title against Reigns at “The Biggest Party Of The Summer” from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on August 19, 2018. On Raw, Reigns cut a promo on Lesnar in which he referenced his recent UFC affiliations, his fight with Daniel Cormier and vowed to make him his “b*tch” at SummerSlam.
Per a report from Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Paul Heyman was heavily involved in Reigns’ Raw promo. The opening promo was described as having “Heyman’s fingerprints all over it.” The episode also laid out the foundation for a possible Heyman turn on Lesnar.
Lesnar attacked Heyman on Raw and left the door open for “The Beast’s” advocate to cost him his match at SummerSlam. It should be interesting to see how everything plays out at SummerSlam later this month.
