Aug. 1 (UPI) -- WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar returned to Raw Monday alongside his advocate Paul Heyman to confront general manager Kurt Angle.
Speaking on behalf of Lesnar, Heyman expressed passionately how The Beast is upset and finds it unfair that last week, Angle announced that he will be defending his title against Roman Reigns, Braun Strowman and Samoa Joe in a Fatal 4-Way Match at SummerSlam.
Finding the odds stacked against him and the match a conspiracy theory to get the Universal Championship off of Lesnar, Heyman declared that if his client loses the title at SummerSlam, they will leave the company.
"If Brock Lesnar loses the Universal title at SummerSlam, he will leave WWE and I'm leaving with him!!!" Heyman said in the middle of the ring.
In anticipation of the Fatal 4-Way championship match, Reigns, Strowman and Joe met in a Triple Threat Match on Raw that quickly turned into more of a street fight with all three rivals taking advantage of the bout's no disqualification rules.
Key moments from the match included Joe locking in his Coquina Clutch on Reigns, Strowman hitting Joe with a Running Powerslam and Reigns nailing Joe with a Superman Punch by using steel steps for leverage.
The Big Dog came away with victor after he dispatched of Strowman with a Superman Punch and performed a thunderous Spear against Joe for the three count. Lesnar will defend his Universal Championship against Reigns, Joe and Strowman in a Fatal 4-Way Match at SummerSlam on Aug. 20.
Also on Raw, The Hardy Boyz defeated Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson before brawling with The Revival; Rich Swann, Cedric Alexander and Akira Tozawa defeated TJP, Ariya Daivari and Tony Nese; Angle's son Jason Jordan appeared on Miz TV and countered a sneak attack by The Miz; Seth Rollins defeated Raw Tag Team Champion Sheamus and received help from Dean Ambrose after he was jumped by Sheamus and Cesaro; Finn Balor attacked Bray Wyatt; Elias defeated Kalisto; Bayley defeated Nia Jax via count-out and Big Cass defeated Big Show via disqualification in the main event due to Enzo Amore attacking him from behind.
