WWE SummerSlam 2017: 10 Early Predictions

4 of 10

7. Braun Strowman Becomes Your New WWE Universal Champion

At some point, Braun Strowman is going to be finished with Roman Reigns. With an ambulance match set for the Raw exclusive Great Balls of Fire pay-per-view, their feud seems to be reaching its climax. After that? Braun sets his sights on the Beast Incarnate, Brock Lesnar.

With a victory over Roman at Great Balls of Fire, Strowman can lay claim to the no. 1 Contendership for the Universal Title.

Since the brand split over a year ago, The Mountain Among Men has been on a roll. Stepping out of the shadow of The Wyatt Family, Braun has come into his own as a singles competitor. He’s already added a couple of big wins over Roman Reigns and has previously challenged for the Universal Title.

At SummerSlam he’ll get a chance to prove his dominance over the Raw roster when he defeats Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship.
