Brock Lesnar made a surprise appearance during the main event at Hell in a Cell. Could The Beast make an appearance this week on WWE Raw, whether to explain himself or get his just desserts?
At Hell in a Cell on Sunday night, WWE Raw only had three matches on the card. But it was a trio of championship fights, and one of them was, for my money, the best match of the night. However, the main event was also a Raw match, and it was a dud — not to mention a trainwreck straight out of the Vince Russo playbook.
The one thing to take away from Hell in a Cell was the surprise appearance of Brock Lesnar, who interfered and prevented either Roman Reigns or Braun Strowman from picking up a win. So where does that leave us for this week’s episode of WWE Raw?
Well, let’s get into some predictions for WWE Raw for September 17, 2018.
Paul Heyman Shows Up — Alone
Let’s get this out of the way: I don’t think Lesnar is going to show up on Raw. The best way to keep this story going is for Paul Heyman to show up alone, with his bottle of mace in hand (just in case).
Brock’s complete destruction of both Universal Champion Roman Reigns and challenger Braun Strowman may have been devastating, but that’s all he’ll do this week. Reigns will come out demanding Lesnar, perhaps Strowman will do the same. But instead they’ll just get Heyman, who’ll have some ridiculous explanation and a demand for a title match for his client at Survivor Series, or at Super Show-Down.
But don’t get your hopes up for Brock on Raw.
