Preview for WWE Raw 6/5

Samoa Joe Takes Aim At WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar
Six nights after defeating Finn Balor and Bray Wyatt in a Triple Threat Match on Raw, Samoa Joe embraced the chaos once again at WWE Extreme Rules, defeating Bálor, Wyatt, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns in an Extreme Rules Fatal 5-Way Match to earn a Universal Championship opportunity against Brock Lesnar at the inaugural WWE Great Balls of Fire event, streaming live on WWE Network on Sunday, July 9.
On Raw Talk last night, the victorious challenger had a chilling message for The Beast Incarnate.
“You start your training camp up right now,” Joe said. “You climb those mountains, you carry those logs, you throw people around, you beat up every sparring partner that you can bring into your camp, and I can guarantee that you still won’t be prepared for what I do to you.”
Will The Samoan Submission Specialist’s bold words garner a response from Lesnar and his vocal advocate, Paul Heyman?
Hardy Boyz Respond to Sheamus & Cesaro Winning the Raw Tag titles
Last night at WWE Extreme Rules, Cesaro & Sheamus escaped a harrowing Steel Cage Match with the Raw Tag Team Titles around their waists, gleefully ending the championship reign The Hardy Boyz kicked off when they returned to WWE at this year’s WrestleMania.
As resilient as they come, Matt and Jeff no doubt have plans to invoke their guaranteed rematch clause sooner rather than later. When will the veteran brothers strike back against The Alabaster Gladiator and the cunning Swiss Cyborg?
What’s Next For Alexa Bliss?
Even though Bayley embraced her extreme side in last night’s Kendo Stick On A Pole Match, Alexa Bliss ruthlessly defended her Raw Women’s Tag Team Championship, brutalizing The Huggable One with multiple strikes that were difficult to watch for many members of the WWE Universe.
How will the self-proclaimed “Goddess of WWE” mark her unsettling victory over Bayley tonight? Also, will Nia Jax soon get the title opportunity she was promised?
The Miz Begins His Intercontinental Championship “Comeback Tour”
Despite an unusual stipulation that would have cost Dean Ambrose the Intercontinental Championship if he were disqualified, The Miz pinned his unstable challenger at WWE Extreme Rules to capture the workhorse title for an impressive seventh time. Sure, it wasn’t exactly an untainted victory, but when has that ever mattered to The A-Lister?
After winning his 92nd pay-per-view match, The Miz will host a “must-see” celebration tonight alongside Maryse and his golden co-star, officially kicking off his Intercontinental Championship “comeback tour.” Somehow, we doubt Ambrose will get an invite.
What Dirt Does Corey Graves Have On Kurt Angle?
With Raw General Manager Kurt Angle preoccupied with the WWE Extreme Rules aftermath and the ongoing mystery behind the attacks on Enzo Amore, there’s still the lingering issue of the troubling information Corey Graves shared with The Olympic Hero last Monday night.
What did Graves receive that could be damaging to the WWE Hall of Famer’s reputation? Will this controversy affect Angle’s judgment in the lead-up to WWE Great Balls of Fire on July 9?
