Get ready for the roof to get blown off the Staples Center when Universal Champion Brock Lesnar locks horns with Braun Strowman at Raw’s exclusive No Mercy pay-per-view on Sunday, Sept. 24.
At SummerSlam, The Beast survived Strowman, Samoa Joe and Roman Reigns in a chaotic Fatal 4-Way Match. The following night, as The Conqueror and his outspoken advocate Paul Heyman were basking in the glow of victory on Monday Night Raw, The Monster Among Men suddenly emerged to make two things clear: Lesnar hadn’t conquered him at all, and Strowman wasn’t finished with him yet.
The massive would-be challenger made clear his intention to take the Universal Title away from Lesnar, prompting a heated altercation between the two Superstars that left the “reigning, defending, undisputed Universal Champion” laid out in the ring. Raw General Manager Kurt Angle would later make a title contest official, and we are off to the races.
There is no denying that Strowman has truly made his mark as a Monster Among Men, fuelled by an uncontrollable fury that has brought complete destruction to Team Red. However, he has never faced anything as dangerous as a one-on-one title bout with The Beast Incarnate.
Despite the all-out bedlam that took place at The Biggest Event of the Summer, all four competitors in the Fatal 4-Way Match were forced to split their focus to deal with danger on all sides. At the September pay-per-view, however, there will be nothing standing between the two great forces of pure destruction. And judging from Lesnar’s victory at SummerSlam, he is just as dominant and resilient as he has even been.
Prediction: Brock Lesnar
Despite wanting Lesnar to lose the title, it becomes the question would I want the belt on a “Monster Among Men”, no I wouldn’t, Would the WWE do so, god – I hope not so I’m picking Lesnar (as much as I hate him) to retain.
