Braun Strowman will get his Universal Title rematch against Brock Lesnar

This week’s episode of Monday Night Raw kicked off with Braun Strowman destroying all of the Raw tag teams as they competed in a battle royal to determine which team will be the captain for the tag team elimination match at Survivor Series.

Stephanie McMahon walked out to the ring to try and restore order. She offered Strowman anything he wants as long as he stays on the same page as team Raw.

Strowman asked for and was granted a future Universal Title shot against Brock Lesnar. The only caveat is that Strowman will not be allowed to touch Baron Corbin until after Sunday’s Survivor Series. For what it’s worth, Lesnar is not scheduled for the TLC pay-per-view in December so it seems more likely that the rematch will happen at the Royal Rumble.

During the same segment, Ronda Rousey walked out to the ring and cut a promo on Becky Lynch. She also did a judo throw on Baron Corbin. Strowman promised to neuter Corbin after Survivor Series.
