After a good Smackdown PPV, Raw was ready to offer some great action. Raw’s main event at Summerslam was set by the end of the night.

Kurt Angle came out and pushed his new found relationship with his son, Jason Jordan. Waiting for him to be announced as Jason Jordan-Angle.
Kurt then began to discuss Brock Lensar at SummerSlam. He gave Roman Reigns and Samoa Joe a chance to earn the spot but…

Brraun Strowman stormed from the back.He warned Kurt that Angle better announce him as the man to face Brock. Braun won his match at Great Balls of Fire and should have automatically gotten the nod. Braun accused Brock of being afraid of him, not the other way around. Kurt started to respond to Braun when…

Samoa Joe came out to deal with this issue. Joe introduced himself to Braun, since they have hever officially met. Joe then discussed how close he came to taking out Brock, last time. Joe felt he should get one more shot. Of course, that brought out…

Roman Reigns. Roman was amused that Joe was bragging so much, since Joe hasn’t done a darn thing in WWE. Roman then ran down his resume of championships. Roman wanted to know what Braun and Joe had done.

Kurt got tired of all the bickering and said he had decided what he was going to do. Kurt made a Fatal Four Way for the Universal Title: Brock Lesnar vs Roman Reigns vs Samoa Joe vs Braun Strowman. Kurt sttarted to leave but Joe stopped him. Joe wasn’t ready for this to be over but Kurt wasn’t going to be pushed around. Kurt stepped out and all Hell broke loose. The three men beat each other senseless until Kurt called for back up.

Elais Samson vs Finn Balor

The Finish:

Finn seemed to have this one won when he used a chair to aid with a Hesitation Dropkick. He followed that up with the Shotgun Dropkick. Finn was ready to end this when he hit Coup de Grace. Suddenly, the lights went out. Bray Wyatt appeared and planted Finn with Sister Abigail. Bray rested in the corner as Elias took the easy pin.

Your Winner: Elias Samson

Bray did his Spider Walk thing and stood over Finn as we cut to commercial.

After the break, Renee Young chatted with Kurt Angle. Kurt was proud that his kid would fight Curt Hawkins in a few minutes.Kurt was nervous for his kid. Why? Has Hawkins EVER won a match? Just saying…

Emma strolled in and asked when the spotlight would be on her? She suggested maybe she should date Kurt’s kid. Kurt decided to give Emma a chance to shine, against Nia Jax.

Elsewhere, Big Show stopped Enzo Amore to talk with him. Show asked if Enzo was sure about what he wanted to do? Enzo said last week might not have gone as planned but he was determined to take the fight to Big Cass.

Enzo came out and cut another inspirational promo. That led to:

Akira Tozawa was interviwed. He was still upset about his loss, last week. He demanded a rematch against Daivari. Titus O’Neil came in to explain that Akira was not cleared to compete. Akira blew by him and yelled that this was HIS fight!

We went to the ring after the commercials. Akira called out Daivari but got Neville instead. Neville felt that maybe everyone had forgotten him. Neville insulted Akira until the Japanese star nailed a Headbutt and Senton. Akira grabbed his shoulder in pain.

Suddenly, Daivari showed up. He attacked Akira hitting two Hammerlock Clotheslines.

Bayley and Sasha talked about their pending battle. Both of them had heard Alexa’s words but knew their friendship was stronger than a title.
