WrestlingInc have explained what happened last night after ‘Raw’ went off the air as per the weekly tradition WWE has.

Last night to end ‘Raw,’ Braun Strowman and Roman Reigns fought in a Last Man Standing match that Samoa Joe would interrupt ahead of their Fatal 4 Way match including Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship at ‘SummerSlam.’ You can view highlights of the match below which we suggest if you were unable to watch.

Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman - Last Man Standing Match: Raw, Aug. 7, 2017

As ‘Raw’ went off the air, fans in the arena saw a staredown between Joe and Strowman. Strowman would get on the mic and explain that he will be the next Universal Champion.

There would be no dark main event or special appearance. On social media, fans speculated Lesnar would come out, Joe would attack Strowman or Reigns would get revenge.

Editor’s Note:
I feel like I have seen WWE cut a majority of these dark matches the past couple weeks. It does make sense why they would, but it isn’t always the best result for those in attendance.
