RAW GM Kurt Angle kicked off this week’s episode of RAW and was greeted with a great reaction from his hometown crowd in Pittsburgh. Angle guaranteed that RAW would be a great show. Angle announced that Big Cass will face Big Show, his son Jason Jordan will be on Miz TV and the Triple Threat match between Braun Strowman, Roman Reigns & Samoa Joe for tonight’s show.
Angle stated that today marked the 21st anniversary of him winning a gold medal with a “broken freaking neck”. Angle said that he had his ups and downs, but he wouldn’t be here today if it weren’t for everyone in the WWE Universe. Angle went to exit the ring but Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman interrupted. Lesnar and Heyman circled the ring and then finally joined Angle in the middle of the ring.
Heyman accused Angle of wanting to take the Universal Championship of Brock Lesnar because he placed him in a Fatal 4-Way at WWE SummerSlam. Heyman said that he believes all three Superstars will gang up on Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam. Heyman insisted that Angle has been told by his bosses that Lesnar must lose the title at SummerSlam. Heyman then stated that if Brock Lesnar loses his WWE Universal Championship at SummerSlam, Lesnar and Heyman are leaving the WWE. Heyman then guaranteed that Brock Lesnar is walking out of SummerSlam still the Universal Champion.
