WWE Moment of the Week
Coming off of the pay-per-view “Great Balls of Fire” this week’s episode of Raw was good followup after the brutal and shocking aftermaths to Roman Reigns vs Braun Strowman as well as Brock Lesnar vs Samoa Joe. One moment that stood out the most to me was the confrontation between Brock Lesnar, Samoa Joe, and Roman Reigns regarding the Universal championship. This moment started out a little weak, the general manager, Kurt Angle, is talking to Brock about who will become the next contender and gets interrupted by Roman Reigns.
Roman came off as cocky and arrogant, saying he deserves to be the #1 contender and he immediately gets shot down by Brock on the mic, saying “You don’t deserve s — t”. The highlight of this segment was when Samoa Joe comes down to the ring and lays a verbal beat down to the champion, bringing intensity to the atmosphere and riling up Brock, making their next potential bout a must see. The temperature is high in the room and a #1 contender is still needed, so Kurt Angle decides to set a match for next week to determine who will face Brock Lesnar at Summerslam. On next week’s Raw, it will be Roman Reigns vs Samoa Joe and as each week goes by, the more anticipated we get for Summerslam.
