It will be interesting to see if Lesnar will be in the building to confront his new challenger. One thing is for sure and that is Paul Heyman will have something to say if he is indeed there to confront Joe.
As for what else is on tap, Alexa Bliss retained her title after Bayley couldn’t bring herself to use a weapon in their match. Who is next in line to take on the RAW Women’s Champion? That should unfold on Monday night.
Also, Kurt Angle seemed worried last week over news that could ruin him. Will that news present itself or will the general manger find a way to bury it once and for all? All these questions and more will be answered on the USA Network.
