The build to SummerSlam Brooklyn has already begun. After Braun Strowman ruined Roman Reigns vs Samoa Joe #1 contender’s match last week(July 17 RAW). Kurt’s big announcement came first at the start of Monday Night RAW. It was first interrupted by Braun, then Samoa Joe got into the mix and Roman Reigns too joined the party. After Kurt’s announcement, all the three contenders fought hard, so much that Kurt has to call for full WWE RAW roasters to end the brawl.

WWE SummerSlam 2017 is set to go down live at 7 P.M. ET on Sunday, August 20. You can watch all the action on WWE Network. Among the other matches, we have Alexa Bliss vs Bayley for the Raw Women’s Championship and Naomi vs Natalya for SmackDown Women’s Championship. So a total of four titles on the line, the question is – how many title changes will we see at SummerSlam?
Fatal 4-way Match Expectations:
While Roman Reigns has competed Brock Lesnar for the WWE title many times in the past, it’s Samoa Joe and Braun Strowman who aren’t aware of Lesnar’s lethal attacks. Both have an external chance but we expect Roman Reigns walking out as a new Universal Champion.
Braun Strowman is fearless power house who can actually take on Brock Lesnar in lethal attacks in upcoming matches. Samoa Joe and Shinsuke Nakamura have gained decent popularity ever since their arrival on WWE from NXT. So, Samoa would like to make use of this big opportunity, which not many WWE SuperStars get easily.
