Roman beats Lashley next week for the number one contendership, I can’t see them handing two straight clean wins over Roman to Lashley, it’s almost certain they will even the score and send Reigns to Summerslam to face the champ.

WWE clearly didn’t learn from the extremely negative reaction fans gave before, during and after the last Reigns/Brock match, nobody wants to see it again including me and I’m a fan of both Roman and Brock, baffles me that they would headline another major PPV with this.

I know not everyone is on board with a Lashley vs Lesnar match but it would be fresh never been done before and a interesting contest of two pretty evenly matched athletes.

That could be a good one. Maybe Ambrose back soon for a Shield reunion or a heel turn ?

I'd expect to see Rollins and Reigns vs Ziggler and McIntyre for Summerslam. Fans are excited for more Reigns vs McIntyre.

So now, what’s left for Roman after losing to Bobby at Extreme Rules ? Demand another rematch ? Say he is still the uncrowned Universal champ ? Maybe go back and watch old Bob Backlund videos and ask, what about me ? He’s lost so much lately I dunno what the plans are for him at this point. I’m not sure if you went and got The Iron Shiek if he would get over with the fans. Personally he puts in the work , and is there night in and night out and that’s what it takes. Fans are just spoiled , anyone but maybe a guy that deserves it.

I'm just basing on crowd reaction. Whenever someone beats up Roman crowds are hot and he's getting a bigger pop when he comes out.

If he loses this match he's in real trouble though; would be a waste of a return because he'd have gained nothing really.

They always go overboard with the number of jobbers they use to try and separate the two stars, it’s a little unrealistic sure but it’s effective and the no nonsense booking of this brawl was decent.

What’s good about this feud is how it’s anyones guess, I really don’t know who’s going to win, as a fan of Lashley I would like to see him win. I just hope the winner of this match then gets Lesnar at Summerslam and I really hope they don’t go with a screwy non finish there needs to be a decisive winner here.

This is make or break for Lashley, we all know how the fans feel about Roman and no amount of clever booking tactics from Vince is going to change that, Lashley however could really cement his status as a top guy here with the fans. He’s shown improvement with his promos lately too proving he can do a short intense promo effectively so the way to book Lashley is definitely as a intense destroyer.

I quite like the opening segment this week.

No bullshit - just a call out and then a brawl.

Yes the brawl may have went on too long and there didnt really need to be 65 superstars to pull them apart but it served its purpose and its helping build up the hate between the 2 and leading nicely to the match at ER
