WWE took us down memory lane last week when the Superstars of yesterday returned at RAW Reunion. It was certainly one of the biggest RAW episodes in history. The company continued the momentum this week as the red brand delivered another astounding episode. A new match was set for SummerSlam after Ricochet won the gauntlet match by pinning Andrade. Hence, Ricochet will face the US Champion AJ Styles.
Things got heated between Becky Lynch and Natalya. While Lynch put Natalya in a Disarm-her before the start of RAW, The Queen of Harts returned the favour with a vicious Sharpshooter. Brock Lesnar completely decimated Seth Rollins. Moreover, Maria Kanellis became the first-ever pregnant champion in WWE history when she won the 24/7 Title from her own husband Mike Kanellis. The Samoan Summit was cancelled on RAW and a gigantic brawl closed the show.
RAW was certainly an action-packed show with some impressive matches and segments. The red brand certainly delivered some unforeseen surprises. Here, we'll discuss three ways WWE surprised us their week.
#3 Brock Lesnar's merciless assault on Seth Rollins
Seth Rollins faced Dolph Ziggler in a singles match on RAW this week. During the match, Brock Lesnar came out to take out his SummerSlam opponent. With the aid of Ziggler, The Beast delivered a vicious clothesline to Rollins.
The Universal Champion also delivered two German Suplexes to Rollins. Subsequently, Lesnar gave multiple F5s to Rollins, including 3 on an unfolded steel chair. The Beastslayer was looking helpless and blood was coming out of Rollins' mouth. The beatdown didn't stop in the ring as Lesnar continued it in the backstage area. Lesnar delivered another vicious F-5 to Rollins on the stretcher.
The brutal attack certainly surprised the fans. Even Paul Heyman was begging Lesnar to stop. Without a shadow of a doubt, it was one of the most ruthless assaults in recent memory.
