37 Minutes of Lucha Underground in 37 Minutes – WrestleZone
Get caught up before the two-part Ultima Lucha finale starting this week with a recap of Lucha Underground Season 1.
It’s almost time for Monday Night Raw! Tonight, the WWE universe descends on Oklahoma City, OK for some heavy-hitting action on the road to SummerSlam. Pre-show notes:
- Smark Feud: Something all us nerds have been dreaming about: the Kevin Owens/Cesaro program is a go! With John Cena seemingly moved on to deal with WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins and Rusev more concerned with Summer Rae and Lana (and really, who could blame him?), these two behemoths have each other in their sights, and nothing standing in their way.
- Divas Revolution: As predicted, the arrival of NXT Women’s Champion Sasha Banks, Charlotte, and Becky Lynch has reinvigorated the Divas division to the point where the Divas segment is probably the number two hottest portion of the show (with Owens/Cesaro being number one).
- SummerSlam Card: Though we’re still four weeks out, it looks like a great deal of the SummerSlam card has been set. Undertaker/Lesnar, Cena/Rollins, Wyatt Family/Shield, Divas trios action, Owens/Cesaro, and Stardust/Neville, and perhaps Ziggler and Lana/Rusev and Summer Rae are all virtually locked in for the big event. Expect these programs to take shape over the next few weeks, starting tonight.
- Stars in the Building?: Will the Undertaker make an appearance? What about the beast incarnate Barack Lesnar? Gotta tune in to find out!
That’s it! Enjoy the show and check back here for the Day After report!
