Monday Night Raw (7/15/2019): 8 pm EST

Show opens up and new Universal Champion Brock Lesnar comes out to the ring with his advocate Paul Heyman. They tell everyone that they told them so. They told everyone that Lesnar was going to cash in his Money In The Bank contract and win the title back. Heyman says now that his client is champion, and since Heyman himself kind of runs the show at Raw now, he will make it so that the next contender can earn a shot at the belt. That shot will be determined in a star-studded Battle Royal later tonight, the winner of which will go on to face Lesnar at Summerslam.
