Roman Reigns didn’t appear on Monday Night Raw this week, but WWE did reveal that he’ll be making a big announcement on next week’s show. Roman is set to reveal his plans for SummerSlam, and although his plans are unknown at this point, The Big Dog took to Twitter and noted that not everyone is going to like what he has to say.

On Sunday July 9th, Brock Lesnar will defend his Universal Championship against Samoa Joe. This week on Raw, Joe and Lesnar came face to face, and it wasn’t long before their encounter turned into a brawl.
WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has been hoping to see Joe and Lesnar face off for quite some time, and he praised their work on Raw in his most recent blog.
“Bravo to all involved in the Brock Lesnar-Samoa Joe confrontation Monday night on RAW as it resonated more prominently, to me, than any piece of business on RAW V in a good while. We fans are creatures of habit to a large degree and we, as a rule, dearly love to see big, tough people especially alpha males engage in physicality of which many can only dream. Seeing Joe become the first man in memory to block a Brock Lesnar double leg takedown attempt Monday night was a pivotal moment to remember in this rivalry. Without question the Great Balls of Fire main event coming to Dallas on the WWE Network will be a sellout at the backstage TV monitors as Joe and Brock will physically bring it to level that may make some of their peers uncomfortable. SLOBBERKNOCKER level carnage!”
