Last Monster Standing.
Thirteen nights before SummerSlam, the 1263rd edition of WWE Monday Night RAW came to you, live, from the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Less than two weeks before they, along with Samoa Joe and Universal Champion Brock Lesnar, collide in a Fatal 4-Way Match for the Universal Championship at SummerSlam, the intense rivalry between Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman would get taken to another level on RAW when “The Big Dog” faces “The Monster Among Men” Braun Strowman in a Last Man Standing Match, where the only way to win is by incapacitating your opponent to the point that they cannot get to their feet by the referee’s count of ten! The last time these two went one-on-one was at Great Balls of Fire in an Ambulance Match where Roman Reigns crashed an ambulance with Braun Strowman inside only for Braun to walk away from the wreckage and return a little over a week later. After seeing the lengths these two went to at Great Balls of Fire to try and destroy each other, what will Roman and Braun be capable of in a Last Man Standing Match? Also, after injuring her shoulder in a match against Nia Jax last week, it was reported prior to RAW that Bayley will not be able to compete in her scheduled match against Alexa Bliss for the RAW Women’s Championship at SummerSlam. After this heartbreaking news, Bayley would make an appearance on RAW to address her injury and, hopefully, provide an update on when we can expect to see her back in the ring again.
