WWE RAW REPORT: PUTTING A GOOD SPIN ON JOE/LESNAR, WHO WAS THE ONE ARMED MAN WHO ATTACKED ENZO?, BEARING DOWN WITH MIZ AND MARYSE, ROMAN'S BIG ANNOUNCEMENT FOR SUMMERSLAM, AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2017-06-19 23:02:00

We are in Evansville, Indiana and your announcers are Michael Cole, Corey Graves, and Booker T.

Roman Reigns makes his way to the ring to make his announcement about SummerSlam.

Roman says some of y'all may not like this, but some of y'all may love it.  Roman says he cannot be beaten one on one.  It is the truth.  Ask Bray Wyatt.  Ask Finn Balor.  Ask Seth Rollins.  Ask Braun Strowman because he put him out of commission.  Don't forget that he main evented his third Wrestlemania in a row.  Roman says that is where he retired the Undertaker.   Roman says he respects Taker and Taker respects him since he beat him.  After Great Balls of Fire, it does not matter who wins between Brock Lesnar and that guy named Joe.  Roman says he is the number one contender for the Universal Title.

Roman asks if you want to know why.  Roman says this is his yard and he makes the rules around here.  Roman says that is why . . . 

Samoa Joe interrupts and comes to the ring.

Joe says he could not helped to have noticed that Roman forgot his name.  Joe says he was offended, but then Roman had to make a case for his announcement.  You mentioned a long list of people you have beaten, but Joe points out that his name is not on that list because you have never beaten him.  Joe reintroduces himself and he says he is the true number one contender and the next Universal Champion.  

Roman says he never thought he would agree with Paul Heyman, but what he said was true.  You will never be Samoa Joe to him.  You will be Just Joe.  

Joe with a head butt and it knocks Reigns to the floor.  Joe with punches and he sends Roman into the ringside barrier a few times.  Joe sends Roman into the apron and then into the ring.  Joe stands over Reigns and he tries for the choke but Reigns blocks it and he gives Joe an arm drag and then he hits a Superman punch but Joe rolls to the floor.
