Kurt Angle Kicks off Monday Night Raw
Raw General Manager Kurt Angle is very happy about last week’s announcement regarding his newfound son in Jason Jordan. Angle is about to name a new #1 contender for the WWE Universal Championship, but out comes “The Monster Among Men” Braun Strowman.
Strowman looks pissed the f**k off. He doesn’t fear Brock Lesnar, and it looks like he doesn’t fear Kurt Angle either.
“The Destroyer” Samoa Joe is out next. He comes to talk some trash and get up in Braun’s face…but then out comes The Big Dog. Roman Reigns’ music hits. He walks down to the ring followed by a chorus of boos. Reigns doesn’t think Joe or Strowman has done anything here. The Big Dog runs down all his accomplishments in five years time; his tag team and US title reigns, three WWE World Championship, a Royal Rumble victory in 2005, and three WrestleMania main events. Reigns reminds everybody that he retired The Undertaker.
Kurt Angle announces a Fatal 4-Way match for SummerSlam for the WWE Universal Championship: Brock Lesnar vs. Samoa Joe vs. Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman. Joe is upset over this decision, and Kurt Angle doesn’t care. Strowman also doesn’t care how many people he faces at SummerSlam because he’ll leave bodies lying. Reigns tells Strowman to shut up and throws the first punch.
An all out brawl erupts in the ring. Joe and Reigns take out Strowman. Reigns and Joe brawl until Strowman comes in to cause havoc and mow down both men.
