I was looking forward Brock and Roman 2 weeks ago, after Brock attacked Heyman. I thought that bought a new element to the fued but i feel like the WWE lost that factor on this weeks Raw and im less interested again.

I love AJ - but ive never been sold on Joe as a main eventer in the WWE and i think the build smackdown have done for this match is absolutely terrible

I’m looking forward to Brock vs Roman, however I think that no matter who wins Strowman will cash in after squashing KO either in the match or after

Id love that to happen, but that seems so obvious also.
Id also love to see KO win the match somehow and get MITB - i think it would be a total shock.
No cash in at Summerslam - i think Hell In The Cell is the next one which would make for a perfect time to cash in after the champ has been through hell (in a cell). I think if Roman won the title at Summerslam and the defended against Braun in a Hell In The Cell and KO cashed in after - that would create more storylines going forward.

I really enjoyed the show!

Even though it felt far too long, I thought they paced it really well. There wasn't anything that I thought was bad. I was surprised by the number of squash matches but I guess that would be expected considering the number of matches on the card.

I would have preferred if both the New Day and Samoa Joe won the titles in their respective matches rather than the DQ finishes but I'm OK with them having their rematches.

Should have known Charlotte would win (I picked Becky for the FWL!)...but I loved the turn after the match and the crowd's (and Charlotte's) reaction was brilliant.

Didn't expect the demon, was a nice surprise, and I'm so glad the match was short.

Loved Samoa baiting AJ with the 'daddy' lines...plus the crowd got involved too :)

I thought The Bellas might attack Nattie/Ronda setting up a tag match for Evolution - glad they didn't!

Nice use of Braun at the end too - so I guess we've got Reigns/Strowman next - I really hope they don't job Strowman but I got a feeling they will.
