Tonight on Monday Night Raw, Brock Lesnar will again confront Samoa Joe ahead of their match at Great Balls of Fire. Plus, we’ll see the fallout of Big Cass’ heel turn and hopefully see some progress on the ongoing mystery surrounding Kurt Angle’s personal crisis. Raw will air tonight at 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time on the USA Network. Check back in at 8 for match results and spoilers, and read on for a preview of the night’s events.
Brock Lesnar will return on Raw tonight to confront Samoa Joe, his opponent at the Great Balls of Fire pay-per-view. Lesnar was not on last week’s show, but he did show up two weeks ago, and when he did, he and Samoa Joe had to literally be torn apart by virtually the entire roster. So with two weeks left to go until Great Balls of Fire, what will Samoa Joe and Brock Lesnar have to say to one another tonight on Raw? Will they clash in the ring?
Plus, last week’s Raw ended with the revelation that it was Big Cass who has been attacking Enzo Amore, as he felt that Enzo has been holding him back from achieving his true potential. Big Cass kicked Enzo in the face as the show came to a close, officially declaring that he and Enzo are finished as a tag team. We didn’t get to hear from Enzo Amore much last week, but presumably tonight on Raw, we will get his reaction to Big Cass’ shocking betrayal. Plus, we’ll get a better sense of when the inevitable Enzo Amore vs. Big Cass match will happen; it seems likely that one will be booked for Great Balls of Fire.
Speaking of former tag teams that are now feuding, Goldust last week declared that on June 26th, he would be premiering his latest motion picture, “The Shattered Truth.” He invited R. Truth to the premiere, and R. Truth accepted this invitation. Now, this seems to be leading up to an in-ring segment between the two, something we have not seen since Goldust betrayed R. Truth a few weeks ago. What will happen when R. Truth and Goldust meet in the ring this evening? Will a match officially be set up for Great Balls of Fire?
With just two weeks left to go until that pay-per-view, it’s likely that at least one or two matches will be announced in the coming days. Right now, all that is official is the Samoa Joe vs. Brock Lesnar Universal Championship match and the Braun Strowman vs. Roman Reigns Ambulance Match, but it’s also expected that there will be a match between Seth Rollins and Bray Wyatt, in addition to likely matches between Enzo Amore and Big Cass and R. Truth and Goldust.
