WWE – The last seven days

It’s been a busy in the land of WWE with the Extreme Rules pay-per-view happening last Sunday, and the fallout from that show transpiring on Monday and Tuesday. All three shows had plenty of talking points.

Lesnar cashes in on Rollins

After Seth Rollins’ successful title defense alongside girlfriend Becky Lynch, Brock Lesnar ended the champions’ paranoia and stormed to the ring to take back the Universal Championship which Rollins took from him at Wrestlemania. One F5 later and Lesnar was once again crowned Universal Champion for the third time. It was an eventful end to the pay-per-view but does this mean the Universal title will vanish from TV again?

Rollins gets title rematch at Summerslam

Paul Heyman announced at the start of Monday Night Raw the main event will be a 10-man battle royal and the winner would face Lesnar for the Universal Championship at Summerslam. The match included big names from both brands and was eventually won by Seth Rollins who will get his chance at redemption at Lesnar. It would have been refreshing to see a new challenger like Bobby Lashley or Cesaro but I feel Rollins still has something to prove as champion if he wins the title back.

Bray Wyatt returns to WWE Raw

After months of vignettes and teases, Bray Wyatt returned to WWE as ‘The Fiend’ and took out Finn Balor with a Sister Abigail. His return has been highly anticipated by the WWE Universe over the summer and the manner in which he made his comeback has only got fans more excited for what the future has in store for Wyatt.

Owens raises hell on Smackdown

Kevin Owens continues to be a thorn in Shane McMahon’s side, as he once again got one of on McMahon as Owens hit a stunner on The best in the world after a Smackdown town hall segment, and once again in the show’s main event before hightailing it out of the arena. It seems Owens will stop at nothing until McMahon is no longer featuring on weekly WWE TV.

Bayley has challenger for Summerslam

After Bayley and her tag partner Ember Moon defeated Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville, Bayley challenged Moon to a match at Summerslam for her Smackdown women’s championship, which Moon unsurprisingly accepted. It’s great to see a fresh feud within the women’s division and this match has the potential to steal the show at Summerslam.
