Brock Lesnar will be forced to defend his Universal Championship against not one, not two, but three men at SummerSlam.
RAW GM Kurt Angle confirmed that a Fatal 4-Way pitting Brock Lesnar against Roman Reigns, Samoa Joe and Braun Strowman will take place in Brooklyn on August 20th. The match was announced during the opening segment of RAW tonight in Washington, DC.
Angle opened the show to announce Lesnar’s opponent before being interrupted by all three of the aforementioned challengers, one at a time. After changing his original idea for Lesnar’s opponent, which he never did reveal, Angle decided that based on all 3 men’s arguments, a Fatal 4-Way would make the most sense. Then chaos ensued.
This is the second match that has been made official for SummerSlam after Natalya secured a shot at Naomi’s Smackdown Women’s Championship last night at Battleground. A 3rd match will be added to the card when Sasha Banks and Bayley battle for the right to face Alexa Bliss for the RAW Women’s Championship later tonight.
