WWE SummerSlam: WWE Universal Championship Fatal Fourway Match
Prior to a great threeway brawl breaking out at the end of the opening segment of tonight's Raw episode, Kurt Angle announced that Brock Lesnar will defend the Universal Championship against Roman Reigns, Braun Strowman and Samoa Joe.
First thing that popped into my mind was that this was a perfect means of getting the title off Lesnar without Lesnar himself getting beaten. My guess is that they plan to save Lesnar losing in a 1 on 1 encounter at WrestleMania. A LOT can happen between now and then, but I see Lesnar dropping the title, probably to Reigns, and ultimately getting his title rematch at WrestleMania next year. Does it make sense that Lesnar could pick and choose when he gets his return match? Not necessarily but Lesnar gets preferential treatment anyhow, so it shouldn't be out of the ordinary that he can decide when he gets his rematch if he drops the strap.
When it's all said and done, this has the makings of a wild brawl that will most likely see Reigns, Strowman and Joe doing most of the work. Lesnar will get in some impressive spots and moves, but he certainly won't be carrying the match.
