No Champion Leaves Five Wanting To Challenge

With Brock Lesnar a no show yet again for a defence of his championship, Kurt Angle makes a five-man match for Extreme Rules, as WWE confirms…

With WWE’s overseas tour completed and half the Raw roster clamouring for the first crack at Universal Champion Brock Lesnar, Raw General Manager Kurt Angle laid out the parameters for the battle that could change the course of the New Era itself: It will be Roman Reigns, Finn Bálor, Seth Rollins, Bray Wyatt and Samoa Joe in a first-time-ever, every-man-for-himself Extreme Rules Fatal 5-Way to determine who will challenge The Beast Incarnate for the title.

Moments after The Olympic Hero made his announcement, all of the aforementioned Superstars arrived to confront each other in Raw’s opening moments, and they didn’t waste any time attempting to get a leg up on their opponents — in Rollins’ case, literally: In the ensuing fracas, The Kingslayer landed a blow on Joe’s knee that sent him limping up the ramp, though it was Bálor who ended the fray with an over-the-top-rope plancha to Reigns and Rollins on the outside.

My question is Why, oh why have they got the main championship of their flagship show on a fucking part timer, its damaging the company, the legitimacy of the belt, its pissing the fans right off.

So when in the name of bullshit insanity is this championship match meant to go down, are we looking at invading Money in the Bank, are we looking at SummerSlam, answers on a postcard please.

Details Kurt Angle, they are important.
