WWE Raw preview, July 31, 2017: Triple Threat showdown in Steel City
Live on Raw in Pittsburgh, all of Universal Champion Brock Lesnar’s SummerSlam opponents will collide in what’s sure to be a hellacious Triple Threat Match. Will it be Roman Reigns, Braun Strowman or Samoa Joe who gains key momentum en route to The Biggest Event of the Summer?
Three’s a crowd
Roman Reigns, Braun Strowman and Samoa Joe will meet Universal Champion Brock Lesnar in a Fatal 4-Way Match at SummerSlam, but first they’ll battle it out in a Triple Threat Match as Raw rolls through Pittsburgh.
Each of these Superstars has proven formidable in recent weeks, with Joe taking The Beast to the limit at WWE Great Balls of Fire, Strowman earning an Ambulance Match victory that very night and The Big Dog momentarily putting The Monster Among Men on the shelf. However, their greatest proving ground yet will be the City of Champions. Who will leave Pittsburgh with a victory over two of their three opponents at The Biggest Event of the Summer?
Jason Jordan to speak out on “Miz TV”
Jason Jordan has done his fair share of interviews since Raw General Manager Kurt Angle revealed that the former SmackDown Tag Team Champion is his son, but now the “gold-blooded” Superstar is set to be grilled by The Miz on “Miz TV,” live in Angle’s home city of Pittsburgh.
What questions might The A-Lister have in store for Jordan? Will we learn of his true aspirations now that he has joined Team Red? One thing’s for sure, even though Jordan’s the son of the Raw GM, The Miz won’t be pulling any punches.
Brothers in arms
Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins clearly still have issues they need to work out, but their alliance nevertheless proved successful when they defeated The Miz and his Miztourage in a 3-on-2 Handicap Match last week on Raw.
The former brothers were overcome with emotion after winning their first bout as a team in three years, and The Kingslayer attempted to cement that reconciliation with an extended fist — an all-too-appropriate olive branch for the onetime Shield members. The Lunatic Fringe either didn’t notice or completely ignored the gesture, leading the WWE Universe to wonder: What’s going through Ambrose’s mind these days? Will he ever forgive Rollins for betraying The Hounds of Justice, or are those wounds just too deep?
Hardy Boyz and “good brothers,” meet Team Red’s “top guys”
The Revival might have been waylaid after Dash Wilder was sidelined with a broken jaw, but the self-proclaimed “top guys” are making up for lost time in recent weeks, first targeting and defeating The Hardy Boyz, then scoring a win over Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson — both tandems former bearers of the Raw Tag Team Titles.
Matt & Jeff forced The Revival into retreat last week, but it’s clear that the newcomers are inching toward Cesaro & Sheamus’ Raw Tag Team Titles. Will The Revival become our next Raw Tag Team Champions?
Bálor to Wyatt: “Let’s play”
As Finn Bálor prepared to finish off Elias in a No Disqualification Match this past Monday night, Bray Wyatt emerged to lay out the Irishman with Sister Abigail, helping Team Red’s loathed crooner pick up a tainted victory over WWE’s first Universal Champion.
Following the bout, Bálor told WWE.com, “If Bray Wyatt wants to play games, let’s play.”
This cryptic statement could mean many things, but if Bálor is saying what we think he’s saying, The Eater of Worlds just made a massive mistake.
