According to a July 21 report from Fansided, WWE Battleground fallout continues tonight on Monday Night Raw, as Brock Lesnar is expected to appear to hype up his upcoming SummerSlam match against John Cena. With Cena retaining his WWE World Heavyweight Championship at WWE Battleground, he advances to a bout against Lesnar next month at SummerSlam. Cena reigned supreme in a Fatal 4-Way bout against three other high-level contestants at WWE Battleground, which earned him a crack at Lesnar.
Cena and Lesnar have fought twice before, with each man winning once. With the score tied at one-all, SummerSlam gives Lesnar and Cena the chance to walk away the winner of the trilogy. Since SummerSlam is still over a month away, the WWE will use the next few weeks to hype up the feud with Lesnar and Cena. In all likelihood, WWE's creative team will script Lesnar to confront Cena the next few weeks on WWE Monday Night Raw and Smackdown episodes.
Lesnar is essentially a part-time performer these days, but he returns to action during Wrestlemania and SummerSlam seasons. With the WWE's first batch of six-month subscriptions to the WWE Network set to expire this September, the promotion is using Lesnar to get fans to re-up on the service. Tonight on WWE Monday Night Raw, more WWE Battleground fallout is expected.
With The Miz defeating Dolph Ziggler in a 19-man battle royal for the WWE Intercontinental Championship at WWE Battleground, fans will learn what's next for the former superstar. The Miz had been toiling in mid-card obscurity over the past few weeks, but his championship win gives him the opportunity to make some noise for one last push. Will he be successful? It didn't work the first time around, and The Miz may have lost a step as far as wrestling skills go.
In other matters related to the WWE Battleground pay-per-view, Chris Jericho and Bray Wyatt are expected to continue their feud one night after engaging in a historic clash in Tampa. Jericho shocked the world with an upset win over Wyatt, so tonight's episode of WWE Monday Night Raw is all about getting revenge. Also on tap for tonight on WWE Monday Night Raw, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose are expected to continue their feud.
