WWE Monday Night RAW Results: Will Seth Rollins and Brock Lesnar Meet Before Their SummerSlam Match?

It's the final Monday Night RAW before SummerSlam this Sunday, and WWE will look to push current feuds further before the "biggest party of the summer."

According to the official Monday Night RAW preview, Universal Champion Brock Lesnar will appear on the go-home show. After Lesnar's beatdown of Seth Rollins last week, it's unclear whether "The Architect" will also show up on RAW before his rematch with Lesnar on Sunday. Fans can expect Lesnar and his advocate, Paul Heyman, showing up to drop a promo criticizing Rollins' misplaced confidence. But after the brutal attack on Rollins last week, it'll be shocking to see Seth return for one last staredown before SummerSlam.

One of the oddest moments from WWE television last week was the forklift accident at the end of SmackDown Live that almost hurt Roman Reigns. While Reigns left unscathed, the WWE Superstar was visibly shaken by the event. Roman was set to announce a challenge for SummerSlam, but his attacker could show up on Monday Night RAW tonight.

Becky Lynch remains the top champion of the RAW Women's Division and her match against Natalya at SummerSlam has turned into a Submission match. While the two will pit the Sharpshooter against the Dis-Arm-Her, how will the feud escalate heading into Sunday's bout?

The OC - AJ Styles, Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows - hold the RAW Tag Team and US Championships heading into SummerSlam. While Styles will take on Ricochet for the US Title on Sunday, will a team challenge Anderson and Gallows for the RAW tag straps? The duo just won the titles last week, so The Revival, The Usos or both could look to regain the championships.

And finally, the history of the 24/7 Championship got a lot more interesting when Maria Kanellis became the first WWE pregnant champion after pinning her husband, Mike. Now that she's lauding the 24/7 Championship over the locker room it'll be interesting to see where this saga goes.

Here's everything that happened on the August 5 episode of Monday Night RAW.

Opening Segment

During the new RAW opening, Samoa Joe gets on the mic and interrupts it. He gets in front of the commentary team and says he's tired of people saying he's the one who tried to harm Roman Reigns on SmackDown Live last week.

Joe demands to look at the footage to see if he was anywhere near there. After not seeing anything that can show he's the one behind it, Samoa Joe says that when Roman Reigns arrives tonight he's going to get in the ring and wait for an apology. He's interrupted by Becky Lynch's music.
