The Brock Party resumes
The good news, at least, is that Kofi Kingston is safe. The bad news, however, is that Brock Lesnar came calling and obliterated Seth Rollins in Extreme Rules’ closing moments, devouring The Architect and reclaiming the Universal Championship by way of a Money in the Bank cash-in. Now, Rollins, who fought his way to Brock for the better part of a year, is facing the Sisyphean task of once again working his way back up to The Beast. There’s little doubt he’ll be game for the attempt, but after weeks of in-ring competition and mental stress brought on by Paul Heyman’s mind games, the question is whether his heart, his mind, and his body are all up to the task. Tune in to Raw tonight, live at 8/7 C on USA Network.
Club house rules
Ahe Club came through in the clutch for AJ Styles, providing the timely interference that allowed The Phenomenal One to relieve Ricochet of his United States Championship and snap the Superstar’s young reign. Ricochet is unlikely to take the disrespect lying down, but to get his prize back, he’ll have to fight his way through a crowded field — Cesaro, The Miz, Braun Strowman and more are still lurking, and The Monster Among Men is coming off a big victory himself — not to mention penetrate Styles’ defenses and deal with The Good Brothers. In other words, it’ll be a tall order. Too tall? We shall certainly see.
