Roman Reigns Announcement Spoiler
The much-ballyhooed Roman Reigns announcement tonight on Raw is likely to be him challenging the winner of Brock Lesnar vs. Samoa Joe at Great Balls of Fire to a title match at SummerSlam.
It is also expected that Braun Strowman will interrupt the announcement, leading to a match between he and Reigns for the title shot at Great Balls of Fire, which Strowman wins, leading to Brock Lesnar vs. Braun Strowman at SummerSlam. Reigns, meanwhile, is still expected to be kept away from Lesnar until WrestleMania 34.
It is also expected that the Kurt Angle text message situation will be furthered, leading to the impending return of Stephanie McMahon and Triple H, which is seemingly all building to Angle vs. Hunter at SummerSlam.
Earlier today, Seth Rollins delivered an announcement of his own when he was revealed as the cover star of the upcoming WWE video game WWE 2K18. Tomorrow night on SmackDown Live, general managers Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan have announcements planned regarding the controversial finish of the women’s Money in the Bank ladder match and their brand’s SummerSlam plans.
All of these pre-hyped announcements are designed to get people talking and boost flagging ratings, which have been at rock bottom levels over the past few weeks. SmackDown is expected to receive a bump due to the fallout from the Money in the Bank pay-per-view and some of the controversies on the show, while Raw is looking to progress key storylines further than on last week’s show, which was a dead rubber for the final two hours due to the NBA playoffs.
