On this week’s Raw, Kurt Angle revealed his big secret. Plus, Samoa Joe faced Roman Reigns in a number one contender’s match for SummerSlam.

Previously on WWE Raw, the WWE Universe put Great Balls of Fire in the rear view mirror. Seth Rollins began his inevitable march to the Intercontinental Championship. He saved Dean Ambrose from a beatdown by The Miz and his Miztourage. So after Rollins lost to Bray Wyatt in the main event, Miz paid him back – until Ambrose made the save.

Also last week, the Hardy Boyz kinda sorta almost broke themselves! A tease is one thing, but now Matt and Jeff have drifted into just doing the gimmick. Perhaps as some payback for the constant teasing, Gallows and Anderson defeated the Hardyz. After the match, The Revival laid a whooping on Matt and Jeff. The Raw tag team division is really starting to heat up.

This week, Roman Reigns and Samoa Joe faced off in a big match. The winner would be named the number one contender for the Universal Championship at SummerSlam. Last week, we learned of Brock Lesnar’s feelings on both men’s qualifications to face him. Who walked out of Raw with a ticket to Suplex City?

But the big story this week surrounded Kurt Angle. For weeks, the Raw General Manager has been plagued by text messages and threats to expose him. Last week, he and Corey Graves received a message about a huge bombshell. As Raw went off the air last week, Angle was on the phone with someone, promising to come clean. No one knows who he was talking to, but we know he’s proud of them – and loves them. What is Kurt’s big secret?
