    RAW Five-Point Review:
    We’re four weeks away from WWE Battleground, where WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins collides with The Beast Incarnate himself, Brock Lesnar. The Architect talked a big game on SmackDown, claiming he’s actually looking forward to his encounter with the mayor of Suplex City. Is Rollins more worried than he’s letting on? WWE.com peers into the mind of “The Future of WWE” — and several other elite Superstars — in this week’s Raw Five-Point Preview.

    1.Will The Architect crumble before WWE Battleground?:
    Have you ever seen a squirrel square off with a silverback gorilla? Well, if you watched the face-off between WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins and Brock Lesnar last week on Raw, you get the general idea. Unable to meet the cold gaze of The Beast Incarnate, Rollins might have been regretting, in that moment, cashing in his Money in the Bank contract on Lesnar and Roman Reigns at WrestleMania. He might have also had second thoughts about refusing Lesnar a one-on-one rematch the following night — a decision that sent The Conqueror on a Raw rampage that led to his suspension.

    But now The Beast is back, reinstated by The Authority to give “The Future of WWE” a make-or-break challenge at WWE Battleground. On SmackDown, when Lesnar wasn’t in the building, Rollins shrugged off his tense Monday night encounter with the hulking Anomaly, actually going so far as to claim that the near-300 pounder is afraid of him. Is Rollins blowing smoke, or has he actually convinced himself that Lesnar isn’t the greatest threat he has ever faced? Perhaps that bravado will be tested Monday night, should Rollins and Lesnar cross paths on Raw.

    2.Is Paige fighting a battle she can’t win?:
    Despite her best efforts, Paige might be learning the hard way that there’s just no beating The Bella Twins. After failing to capture the Divas Championship at Money in the Bank, The Diva of Tomorrow tried to rally the locker room against Nikki & Brie, attempting to institute real change in the Divas division. Unfortunately, Divas Champion Nikki — claiming a strong connection to The Authority — defused Paige’s efforts moments later.

    After falling to both Bellas in a 2-on-1 Handicap Match on Raw, Paige was defeated by Brie on SmackDown, thanks in no small part to interference by Alicia Fox. Is Fox now actually in league with The Bella Twins? If so, how many others aligned with Nikki & Brie?

    3.Will John Cena address Kevin Owens’ U.S. Title challenge?:
    After sadistically tossing rapper Machine Gun Kelly off the stage on Raw, NXT Champion Kevin Owens sat down with Michael Cole in a WWE.com exclusive to discuss the incident, making it clear that he’s not done with John Cena just yet. In fact, he plans on taking the Cenation leader’s “most prized possession”: the United States Championship.

    Cena had previously offered Owens a U.S. Title opportunity when the brawler debuted on Raw in May, but the NXT Champion responded by assaulting The Champ and disrespectfully stomping on the star-spangled prize. Will Cena address Owens’ new desire to battle for the U.S. Title?

    4.Are Bray Wyatt’s mind games working?:
    It’s not easy to get inside Roman Reigns’ head, but Bray Wyatt seems to be making himself comfortable there since denying The Big Dog a Money in the Bank victory last Sunday — especially since The Eater of Worlds got Reigns’ daughter involved.

    Fired up on SmackDown, Reigns nevertheless fell victim to a Wyatt mental ambush when The New Face of Fear appeared on the TitanTron and cost him a victory in the night’s main event. Then, after the lights went out, Reigns was left in the ring with a photo of himself and his daughter. Is The New Face of Fear throwing Reigns off his game in the lead-up to their WWE Battleground clash?

    5.Has the sun set on The New Day?:
    The New Day’s optimistic outlook has truly been tested since Money in the Bank, where Kofi Kingston failed to win the Money in the Bank Contract Ladder Match and his two partners in positivity lost the WWE Tag Team Championship to The Prime Time Players. On Raw, Kingston, Xavier Woods & Big E were then defeated by Titus O’Neil, Darren Young & Neville in a Six-Man Tag Team Match. Finally, on SmackDown, Woods fell to The Man That Gravity Forgot. Will the clapping competitors reverse their fortunes this week on Raw?

  7. Brock Lesnar is scheduled to be on Raw tonight... so yeah, I'm watching.
  8. But he won't be on RAW next week, right?

    And then he's scheduled to appear in Chicago on July 6th episode, IIRC.

    Man, am I glad to have Lesnar back on the show.
  9. Yeah, he won't be there next week, but he's scheduled for tonight as well as the last two Raw episodes (July 6th and 13th) before Battleground. And let's not forgot he's scheduled for three out of the five Raw's leading to Summerslam as well...

    Counting Battleground and Summerslam, we've got a total of eight more Brock appearances to relish in over the next two months.
  10. That's pretty awesome!
  11. Yes, Comrade Shiek (was watching Hulk Hogan's Rock n Wrestling) .

    Thanks :emoji_slight_smile: It's nice to be appreciated.... it's possible I might wake up but I'm on the edge of a coma :emoji_slight_smile:
