Roman or Lashley sooner or later a Monster is going to come calling because he has the case then asks the fans how he would look as the new Universal Champion.

Kevin Owens walks out very slowly as Mr Wrestling is all taped. He’s not going to let Braun talk about the title after he threw him off a 20 foot cage, he befriended Braun for his son, he thought he could take Nicholas spot as Braun’s tag partner, Mr Wrestling says he has a family to take care of & Braun tried to take everything away from him so now he’s going to take everything away from Strowman. Owens has nothing left to prove since he beat Braun at Extreme Rules, but Braun’s problems have only begun.

The Constable said that what Braun did in the cage was technically legal, it was morally wrong & he think he found someone to help control Braun’s temper. Enter the man that comes in peace Jinder Mahal. (But he may leave in pieces)

Mahal senses a storm brewing within & asks Braun to let him help him, he may not believe him and does the breathing. Braun says he knows he has a temper, he asks Sunil to to hold the mic then says Get These Hands. Big Boot to Jinder, Biel to Sunil then a Running Powerslam on Sunil

(It’s clear as day to me, one of 2 things will happen at SummerSlam: either Roman wins the title and Braun/Owens cashes in afterwards or we see a repeat of Mania XXXI and we see a cash in during the match, but either way neither Roman or Brock will leave Brooklyn with the Title. I’M CALLING IT NOW)
