The Fatal 5Way main event set for Raw’s next pay-per-view (PPV) will determine who faces Universal champion Brock Lesnar at July’s Great Balls of Fire. It’s also provided General Manager Kurt Angle with some interesting match combinations to play around with in the build to June 4’s Extreme Rules in Baltimore.
Angle’s got two more shows to book before the #1 contender is determined, but he’s already planned out next week. On May 29 in Greenville, South Carolina, there will be a Triple Threat between Samoa Joe, Bray Wyatt (who proved they could work together on the May 22 Raw, less than a week after Wyatt hit his finisher on The Destroyer) and Finn Bálor (or as Kurt likes to call him, “Finn Bay-lor”)...

... and, just seven days after coming up short in a tag match against Joe & the Eater of Worlds, former Shield brothers Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns will go one-on-one!

The Olympic Gold Medalist was pretty pleased with himself after announcing these bouts for next Monday.
What do you think, Cagesiders? Is the Fatal 5Way build distracting you from the lack of BRAUN?
