Roman Reigns makes his SummerSlam announcement
Roman Reigns’ music hits, and he comes out to loud boos from the Evansville crowd. Reigns will be making an announcement about his plans for this year’s SummerSlam. Reigns stands in the ring, and the boos get louder. Faintly underneath is the sound of women and children screaming. Reigns just stands there and soaks it in. Reigns says some people may not like this, but some may love it. When it comes down to it, he cannot be beaten one on one. Ask Bray Wyatt. Ask Finn Bálor. Ask his little brother, Seth Rollins. Ask Braun Strowman. He put him out of commission. Let’s not forget, he main evented his third WrestleMania in a row… and that’s where he retired The Undertaker. There are loud boos for this. An “Undertaker” chant fires up. Reigns says he respects The Undertaker, and The Undertaker respects him because he beat him. After the Great Balls of Fire PPV, he doesn’t care who wins the championship match. It could be Brock Lesnar or the guy they call Joe. At SummerSlam, he’s the #1 Contender for the Universal Championship. Reigns asks if they would like to know why. Reigns says, “Because this is my yard, and I make the rules around here.”
Samoa Joe’s music hits, and he comes out to a nice reception. Joe says he couldn’t help but notice that Reigns seems to have forgotten his name. At first he was offended, but then he thought to himself that Reigns had to come out and make a case for his announcement. Joe noticed his name wasn’t on that list because Reigns has never beaten him. Joe wants to reintroduce him. Joe says, “My name is Samoa Joe. I am the true #1 Contender, and the next Universal Champion.” Reigns seems like he’s in deep thought. Reigns says he never thought in his whole life he’d agree with Paul Heyman, but what he said on last week’s RAW was true. He’ll never be Samoa Joe to him. He’ll always be “Just Joe.”
Joe all of a sudden head-butts him in the face and sends him flying out of the ring. Joe drives him into the barricade twice before putting him in the ring. Joe goes for the Coquina Clutch, but Reigns fights out and connects with a Superman Punch. Joe quickly rolls out of the ring and retreats.
The Hardy Boyz will be in action against Anderson and Gallows, next.

Roman Reigns will take on Samoa Joe in tonight’s main event.
It’s time for another Shattered Dreams Production. Goldust says he’s ready for his closeup. Hollywood – the glitz, the glamour. The brightest stars and the biggest stage. A city where dreams come true, but what about the other side, the side they don’t want you to see? Dreams get shattered like glass. He’s been there, but he pieced himself back together. Now, he’ll be flying into the City of Angels on wings made of gold. Next week, he wants to formally invite R-Truth to the debut of his latest motion picture, “The Shattered Truth.” You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll never forget the name of… Goldust. The Golden Age… is back.
Elias Samson sings a song to Evansville
Elias Samson is in the ring strumming his guitar. The crowd boos him. Samson greets the crowd, and he has a question for everyone in the crowd: who wants to walk with Elias? When he was 15, his father gave him a guitar and said he could tell the stories of the world with it. His father didn’t realize he’d drift into the god forsaken town of Evansville. Samson tells them to relax and open their minds to his music, which will cleanse their filthy souls. Samson starts to strum, but he stops to tune it. Samson asks for complete silence while he tunes the guitar.

We’ll hear from Seth Rollins, next.
Michael Cole and Booker T talk about the controversy stemming from the Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match.
Kurt Angle is talking on the phone backstage when Corey Graves walks in. Graves says it’s too bad Angle didn’t have a good Father’s Day. Graves got the same text he did and has a plan. Graves stops when Enzo and Cass walk in. Angle asks why Enzo sent a tweet to Conor McGregor. Big Cass can’t believe Angle wants to talk about a tweet. They’ve been getting attacked week after week. Enzo holds The Revival responsible. Big Cass says he thought it might be Enzo at first, but now he knows it’s The Big Show. Angle promises to have the answer by the end of the night. They walk off. Graves then talks strategy as the segment ends.
Seth Rollins addresses being on the cover of WWE 2K18
Seth Rollins makes his entrance to a nice reception. Rollins says today was kind of an awesome day. He grew up playing video games. For him, sports games were his “jam.” Today, he has the honor and the privilege to join his favorite players like Michael Jordan and Peyton Manning as a cover athlete on a game. The crowd gives him a nice hand. It almost didn’t happen. He was given an offer, which he accepted and bought in. It was awesome. He won championships and made a lot of money (a random “You deserve it” chant fires up), but he didn’t have the support. The fans gave him a second chance. That allowed him to give himself a second chance. No material possession is worth that. The reaction is dying down. Rollins says this is “our” cover. The tag line is “Be Like No One.” Life is about defining who you are. Everyone makes mistakes, but that doesn’t have to define who we are today, tomorrow, and in the future. Rollins wants to make a promise.
Bray Wyatt appears on the screen. Wyatt says Rollins is contradicting himself. From one side of his mouth, he speaks about how he’s grown as an individual, but from the other side he only talks about material possessions. Rollins claims he’s become his own man, yet he shills this corporate banner. Wyatt can feel the struggle in Rollins’ soul. Rollins is still conforming only now he’s conforming to what the people want him to be. Rollins can wear the clothes of a good, honest man, but they both know that Rollins is not that man. Wyatt snickers. Rollins says Wyatt is right. Rollins is not that man. He’s THE man. Rollins has been around some of the most egotistical men in this business, but Wyatt is taking it to another level. Life doesn’t work that way. Rollins has had an exciting couple of years, but the people who know him know that he was more excited than anything to be in the ring with an alleged god. Gods only exist in your mind. Maybe in Wyatt’s world, he’s a god. In Rollins’ world, Wyatt is a coward. Wyatt says Rollins thinks he’s safe, but he warned him. Anyone that is to take his name in vain is to be punished. Wyatt warned him. Now it’s time to make a sacrifice. Wyatt holds up the lantern and says, “I’m here.”
Wyatt makes his entrance. Once he gets to ringside, Rollins lays him out with a cross-body block from the top rope. Rollins celebrates and backs up the ramp. Wyatt sits at ringside and laughs.
Kurt Angle will crack the case on who has been attacking Enzo and Cass. Tonight’s main event will see Roman Reigns take on Samoa Joe.
Replays are shown of what Seth Rollins just did to Bray Wyatt.
Charly Caruso is backstage with Finn Bálor. She asks what’s next for him. Bálor says things at Extreme Rules didn’t go as planned, but he has to look forward. When he looks forward, he sees the Universal Title. She asks for a prediction for tonight’s main event. Few people know Samoa Joe like him. From experience, when the Coquina Clutch is locked in, it’s lights out. All of a sudden, Elias Samson viciously attacks him from behind and warns him never to upstage him again. D-Von Dudley (a backstage producer now) runs him off.
Akira Tozawa vs. TJP
Before the bell rings, Titus O’Neil comes out. O’Neil asks what’s going on. They can’t have a match of this magnitude without the proper hype. How can you have the proper hype without the proper brand? O’Neil gets in the ring and does the ring announcing. There is dead silence in the arena for this.
The bell rings, and Tozawa applies a side headlock. Tozawa lets out his war cry. TJP twists out and applies a neck vice. Tozawa whips him off, but misses TJP. Tozawa then rolls him up for a two count. Tozawa quickly goes to an arm drag. TJP gets out with a head-scissor for a two count. TJP gets him in the corner and punches him. TJP sends him to the opposite corner, but Tozawa slingshots over him. TJP comes back with a sunset flip, but Tozawa gets out and kicks him. Tozawa tries for a senton splash, but TJP gets his knees up.
Neville’s music hits, and the King of the Cruiserweights comes out to commentary. Neville says he’s not here to talk to Michael Cole; he’s here to get his eyes on Akira Tozawa.
We come back from the break to see TJP slam Tozawa down. TJP hits a slingshot senton for a two count. TJP sends him into the ropes, but Tozawa holds on and kicks him. TJP springboards off the ropes to take him down and kips up before picking up a two count. TJP steps on his face and digs his forearms into him. TJP applies a chin lock. O’Neil roots on Tozawa from ringside. Tozawa fights out and flips through a back suplex. TJP elbows him back, but Tozawa comes back with a running boot to the face. Tozawa goes to the top rope and leaps, but TJP gets out of the ring. Tozawa then annihilates him with a suicide dive. Tozawa gets him in the ring, and TJP tries to beg him off. TJP pulls him into the turnbuckles and hits a double chickenwing gutbuster for a near fall. TJP tries for a Detonation Kick, but Tozawa gets out and hits a kick. Tozawa lays him out with a snap back suplex before going to the top rope for a senton splash for the win.
Winner by Pinfall: Akira Tozawa
O’Neil congratulates Tozawa on his win. O’Neil announces that himself and Apollo Crews will face Sheamus and Cesaro tonight. O’Neil says Tozawa is close to signing with the Titus Brand. Once he does, Tozawa will be the next Cruiserweight Champion. Neville stands on the commentary table and screams that he’s heard enough. O’Neil needs to watch his tongue. As for Tozawa, he was warned to tread carefully. If he continues to disrespect the King of the Cruiserweights, he will be annihilated. O’Neil says he doesn’t see a proud king – he sees a scared little boy. Neville’s level will be annihilated by the power of Tozawa. O’Neil’s music hits to end the segment.
Tonight’s main event is Roman Reigns taking on Samoa Joe. Kurt Angle is seen talking with The Revival backstage.
R-Truth accepts Goldust’s invitation. It’s going down in LA. If Goldust wants his name in lights, he’ll smash them all. If Goldust wants to be the brightest star in the sky, he’ll bring him crashing down to earth. There will be no movie premiere. It’ll just be the hand of truth slapping him in the face. Next week, Goldust will get got.
Bo Dallas is seething backstage when Curtis Axel checks on him. Axel tries to pump him up. The Miz walks up to them and says Dallas hasn’t been looking too hot lately. They should both blame themselves. The Bo Dallas on The Marine 5 set would slap this Bo in the face. As for the Ax-man… he’s doing nothing. Axel can hit him, but Miz will continue being the Intercontinental Champion. They should join him and be his entourage. They’ll become the stars they were meant to be. Miz tells them to think about it.
Charly Caruso is backstage with Samoa Joe. She asks how he’s preparing for Roman Reigns. Joe says she’s asking the wrong question. The question is how is Reigns preparing for him? Footage is shown of Joe defeating Roman Reigns four months ago on RAW. Reigns needs to realize who he’s dealing with. Tonight, Reigns will leave here as a broken man. Reigns needs to be careful what he asks for. He’s going to teach Reigns his name and to respect it.
Roman Reigns’ music hits, and he makes his way to the ring. He faces Samoa Joe, next.

All of a sudden, a high pitched siren is heard. It’s the sound of an ambulance backing up. It’s shown on the titantron. Reigns looks confused.

Miz was worried Dean Ambrose was in the box. They then show footage of the truly terrible tag match with the bear last week.
The Miz is in the ring. In the center of the ring is a big red box. On each side is a bear with a placards saying “I’m sorry” and “Please forgive me.” The Miz introduces his beautiful, gorgeous, sexy wife, Maryse. Maryse makes her way to the ring looking none too pleased. Miz holds the ropes open for her. Miz says he checked the bears out before they started. Miz gives her a glass of champagne and goes for a kiss, but she turns away. Miz says he was wrong to destroy the grandfather clock. Miz apologizes for that.

Miz gets the crowd to chant, “Open it.” She tears the paper off and reveals a grandfather clock. Miz says he fixed it himself in between time sleeping on the couch.

Kurt Angle reveals who’s been attacking Enzo and Cass
Kurt Angle makes his way to the ring, and the General Manager of RAW receives the respectful chants of “You suck” to his theme song. Angle says it’s time to get down to business. For the past month, someone or multiple people have been attacking Enzo and Cass. Angle will not allow this show to devolve into an environment unsafe for the entertainers… or wrestlers. Angle asks Enzo and Cass to come out.
Enzo and Cass make their way to the ring. Enzo goes through his usual shtick before getting in the ring. Big Cass says when they figure out who’s been attacking them, they will find them and prove there is only one word to describe them: S-A-W-F-T. Angle has been talking to suspects all night long. Angle first brings out The Revival. The Revival comes out to silence. Angle tells them to hold on. The next suspect is someone he’s known for a very long time: The Big Show. The Big Show makes his way to the ring, and Big Cass has his eyes locked on him in anger. Angle wants to get to the point and rule out a few of them. Big Cass said when he got hit from behind, it felt like a powerful punch to the back of the head. Angle asks if Big Show did it. Big Show is incredulous over the accusation. Big Show says they’re both SAWFT. If he’s going to attack them, he’ll come right at them. Big Show warns Cass he’ll give him more than he can handle. As far as Angle, he’s angry over being accused and says he perhaps doesn’t need to be on this show anymore.
Big Cass said that proves that Big Show attacked them. When he was evaluated, the medical staff said there was a lump the size of a baseball on his head. Moving on to The Revival… Scott Dawson makes the case for why they didn’t. Angle rules them out as well.
Corey Graves says he can clear this up. Graves says Big Cass lied about having a lump on the back of his head because the medical staff never evaluated him. Cass says the EMTs evaluated him. Graves said he wasn’t medically cleared to compete, but he still came out. Big Cass says he said he’d never leave Enzo alone. Graves shows some security camera footage of Cass backstage last week arranging pipes and a table before laying down like he was attacked. Graves says that was the same position he was found in. Graves says no one ever attacked Cass. Enzo turns and looks at Big Cass. Graves says that Big Cass attacked Enzo.
Enzo is confused. Big Cass says, “You’re damn right I did it!” Cass asks if Enzo has anytime what it’s like to team with him. Enzo just runs his mouth all the time. Enzo even ran his mouth to Conor McGregor. Big Cass has wanted to slap him in the head and knock him out many times, but he felt bad for him. No one backstage likes him and he felt bad about that. Cass put up with his crap every single day until he snapped. It felt good to attack him from behind. He could have snapped Enzo’s neck like a twig, but he didn’t because he wanted to watch him suffer for all the crap Enzo put him through in Tampa and on RAW. When things got hot and looked like he did it, he cooled it down. Cass wanted to see if he was smart enough to realize if he was smart enough to realize what was going on around him. Cass wondered if he’s dumber than he looks, but he’s even dumber. Enzo is dead weight holding him down. Enzo should be rising to the top of the WWE. Enzo is the reason he’s never been a champion. Cass is the star, the future, and where the money is. Enzo’s mouth just writes checks his ass can’t cash because Big Cass has always been behind him. Well, not for long because they’re through! Big Cass then big boots Enzo down while the crowd boos. Angle steps between them. Big Cass leaves the ring. Angle checks on Enzo as the show ends.
