Roman Empire Topples Rusev.

Thirteen nights before “The Biggest Event of the Summer” SummerSlam, the 1211th edition of WWE Monday Night RAW came to you, live, from the Honda Center in Anaheim, CA. Last week’s RAW ended with a shocker as, in the middle of a speech from Paul Heyman on behalf of his client, Brock Lesnar, about Randy Orton’s inability to hit “The Beast” with an RKO, SmackDown Live Superstar Randy Orton would invade RAW and drop his SummerSlam opponent with an RKO, instantly proving Heyman wrong! However, Brock would not take his lying down as “The Beast” would respond by invading SmackDown Live the following night, breezing past security and entering the ring, leveling Randy Orton with the F-5 before Lesnar was escorted from the building by security! With tensions rising as SummerSlam draws near, what kind of anarchy can we expect on RAW this week?
