What an episode of Monday Night Raw that took place last night. From getting two divas matches, Cesaro in the main event once again and The Brock-Taker segments, WWE seems to be pulling out the big guns as they headed to Brooklyn and Summerslam. The company is been tried for years to brand their summertime spectacular as comparable to Wrestlemania. This year they just might do it.

The word on the street is that WWE brought back the Undertaker to enhance subscriber numbers. And it makes sense if you have to report those numbers on July 30, you want to do everything you can. They definitely did well building suspense between the two behemoths faced with those fighting segments on Monday Night Raw. I’m just wondering if the build a match up to the match. Can the near 50-year-old Undertaker pullout one more great match? Do they really have to, I’m not sure?

Another interesting development coming from Raw is the segment with John Cena and Seth Rollins. It makes me curious if we are going to see a Champion versus Champion match at the Barclays Center. I think it would be interesting in a good way to bring entry as Cena has been really upping his game in the last few months. They have an interesting chemistry together. It could be fun. It’s weird that the WWE Championship seems to be taking a backseat to the Lesnar-Undertaker rematch.

As of right now, a lot of the roster is up in the air as It relates to SummerSlam. Where does Kevin Owens fit on the card? Will he fight Cesaro? What you do with the women’s Three Way Trios feud? What about the Bulgarian Brute, Summer Rae and Lana storyline?

The only match kind of forming himself is Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose versus the newly reunited Luke Harper and Bray Wyatt. Now, there been reports that will actually be a six man tag with Sting returning teaming with the former Shield members. My question is who will be the third for the Wyatt family if that is the case?

SummerSlam along with NXT Takeover, plus Monday Night Raw that weekend really makes the case that WWE is trying to create another juggernaut. I’m sure that will get another videogame reveal in Brooklyn added to the schedule of events. They been doing that for years. Along with all the other events going on that weekend as the Beastie Boys once said there will be no sleep until Brooklyn.
