All-Star Top 10 Battle Royal For Shot At Universal Title

Raw is giving us an All-Star Top 10 Battle Royal tonight for a shot at Brock Lesnar's Universal Title at SummerSlam.

The entrants are as follows:
  1. Baron Corbin
  2. BRAUN Strowman
  3. Randy Orton
  4. Rey Mysterio
  5. Cesaro
  6. Big E
  7. Roman Reigns
  8. Seth Rollins
  9. Bobby Lashley
  10. Sami Zayn (Initially this was Daniel Bryan, but they swapped him out for Zayn)
You won't typically, if ever, catch me rooting against "The Big Dog" Roman Reigns, but I am tonight. It's not because I desperately want to see someone else take on Brock Lesnar though. It's because I have ZERO INTEREST in seeing another Brock Lesnar v Roman Reigns match at this stage of the game. My hope is that something happens tonight that kicks off Roman's SummerSlam program (Randy Orton maybe?) if WWE is not going to give us the Graveyard Dogs v Revival at SummerSlam for the Raw Tag Team Titles.

I am also rooting against Seth Rollins tonight because I don't need to see that either after Mania 35, and then Extreme Rules last night. I said immediately after the match last night that I wanted to see Seth "sidetracked" with something as opposed to mixing it up with Brock this soon.

The guy I'd like to see win the shot the most would be Big E because he's entertaining as heck, and it would be cool to see him get a spotlight singles match.

Seeing Bobby Lashley win wouldn't bother me either. Two hosses going at it always works for me.

Speaking of HOSSES, I'd be ALL IN on a BRAUN victory if I thought Brock didn't hate working with BRAUN and would make him look like a chump again.

Ultimately, as long as we avoid Roman v Brock, I'll be fine with whatever we get.
