If you were wondering when to tune in tonight to see the first clash between The Beast and The Destroyer, wonder no more.
WWE has just announced that tonight's episode of Raw will start out with Brock Lesnar coming down to the ring to call out Samoa Joe, who attacked and choked out Lesnar's friend and advocate, Paul Heyman, on last week's show.
This might be a tactic to get eyes on the show, which starts at 8 pm est, and get this segment on the air before Game 5 of the NBA Finals, which starts an hour later at 9 pm est.
Here is the full statement from WWE.
Will Brock Lesnar bring the pain to Samoa Joe?
You should never intentionally provoke Universal Champion Brock Lesnar, and you definitely shouldn't put your hands on his advocate, Paul Heyman. And yet, Samoa Joe accomplished both of those feats last Monday night on Raw when, in a difficult-to-watch show of force, he viciously locked Heyman in the Coquina Clutch.
The Samoan Submission Machine's message was received by the Universal Champion, who will respond to his No. 1 contender's sadistic attack tonight when Raw goes on the air at 8/7 C on USA Network. The juggernauts' Universal Title clash at the debut WWE Great Balls of Fire pay-per-view event is still weeks away, but someone's going to get burned tonight. Will it be Joe or Lesnar?
