Brock Lesnar opened up WWE RAW from the Cajundome on June 12, but Samoa Joe soon came out and began a locker room clearing brawl
Samoa Joe earned the “right” to face Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship at the upcoming WWE Great Balls of Fire. However, he sent a loud message one week ago on WWE RAW. Not only did he clearly state that he was unafraid of the Beast Incarnate, but he also choked out Paul Heyman with the Coquina Clutch.
As such, Lesnar was out to open up RAW on June 12 from the Cajundome. Obviously Heyman was there as the mouthpiece, belittling Joe and so on. However, the Samoan Submission Machine didn’t like the tone — one can assume. Thus, he came down to the ring and didn’t hesitate to get in and go face-to-face with Brock Lesnar.
There was a brief staredown. But when you have two volatile men that close with bad blood, it doesn’t take long for things to get physical. Joe delivered the first blow and the two went back and forth trying to beat the hell out of the other. Security came out to try and stop them, but they were unable to. The RAW locker room then cleared and tried to separate the two.
However, both Joe and Lesnar got loose at different occasions. When the challenger got loose, though, he delivered a wicked kick right to the face of Lesnar:
If there was one thing that this feud was missing, it was something worth fighting over. In two weeks and as many segments, they’ve made that happen. Now this is going to be a feud and match boiling over with bad blood.
Obviously the work between these two is going to be stellar (and brutal). However, now there are actual stakes for the match and it should be even more vicious.
Maybe even enough so to make fans momentarily forget that they thought naming a pay-per-view Great Balls of Fire was a good idea.
