WWE Raw preview, Aug. 7, 2017: Will Reigns end Lesnar's WWE career at SummerSlam?
By defeating Braun Strowman and Samoa Joe in this past Monday’s Triple Threat Match, Roman Reigns sent a powerful message to Universal Champion Brock Lesnar. Can The Big Dog’s momentum propel him to a victory over The Beast Incarnate that will force Lesnar to leave WWE?
The Big Dog in the hunt
If last week’s Triple Threat Match was a sign of things to come, then Universal Champion Brock Lesnar might be making an unceremonious exit from WWE after SummerSlam. Roman Reigns, Samoa Joe and Braun Strowman fought tooth-and-nail to prove their supremacy as the Fatal 4-Way Match at The Biggest Event of the Summer fast approaches, and it was The Big Dog who ultimately triumphed over his imposing adversaries.
Paul Heyman affirmed that The Beast Incarnate would leave WWE if he loses his title at SummerSlam, claiming that Raw General Manager Kurt Angle is part of a conspiracy to force the championship off his client. Will it be Reigns who seals The Conqueror’s fate on Sunday, Aug. 20, live on WWE Network?
Bayley’s future to be determined
Bayley’s Raw Women’s Championship opportunity against Alexa Bliss is in jeopardy after suffering an injury to her right shoulder during her match against Nia Jax.
According to WWE medical personnel, the extent of the injury has yet to be determined due to swelling in and around the injured area. A conclusive diagnosis will be made Monday in Toronto, but based on what we have seen, it doesn’t seem likey that The Huggable One will be getting back into the ring anytime soon.
If Bayley is unable to compete at SummerSlam, who will challenge the so-called “Goddess of WWE” for her coveted championship? Hopefully, details will emerge on Raw.
Does Rollins truly have Ambrose’s back?
After Seth Rollins defeated Sheamus in singles action, The Kingslayer fell victim to a 2-on-1 beatdown by the Raw Tag Team Champions, and was ultimately assisted by Dean Ambrose, who ate a Brogue Kick in the process.
But don’t mistake The Lunatic Fringe’s actions for friendship. Ambrose made it clear that he only helped Rollins even the odds against Cesaro & Sheamus so he wouldn’t look like “the jerk,” and that Rollins wouldn’t return the favor if their roles were reversed. Will Rollins have the chance to prove his loyalty on Raw?
The Hardys’ fury has been “awoken”
After defeating Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson this past Monday night, The Hardy Boyz got the better of both the “good brothers” and The Revival in a three-team melee. In a WWE.com interview following the brawl, Matt & Jeff Hardy referred to an “awakening” within them that will propel them to the Raw Tag Team Titles.
Does a Raw Tag Team Championship opportunity await The Hardy Boyz in the near future?
How will Wyatt respond to Bálor’s mind games?
Bray Wyatt is a master of psychological warfare, but Finn Bálor has a trick or two up his sleeve as well. During The Eater of Worlds’ diatribe in which he boasted about hitting the Irishman with Sister Abigail the previous week, Bálor appeared in the ring from the darkness to ambush Wyatt, then sent the sinister Superstar tumbling out of the ring and up the ramp in retreat. However Wyatt responds on Monday, it won’t be subtle.

Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman to face off in a Last Man Standing Match this Monday on Raw
With less than three weeks to go until they clash in a Fatal 4-Way Match with the Universal Championship on the line at SummerSlam, it has been announced that Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman will continue their epic rivalry when they compete in a Last Man Standing Match this Monday on Raw.
The personal history between Reigns and Strowman is well-known, as they have already competed in several brutal encounters, including their Ambulance Match last month at WWE Great Balls of Fire. What will happen when these two Superstars have to inflict enough damage onto one another to keep them down for a count of 10 and be declared the victor of the Last Man Standing Match? And what impact will this have on the looming Universal Title Match at The Biggest Event of Summer?
