WWE Great Balls of Fire Preview

By Brandon Albright, @B_Rock1978

WWE Great Balls of Fire arrives on the WWE Network this Sunday night live at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. WWE Great Balls of Fire is making its debut as a yearly pay per view event. The show will headline with the WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar defending his title against Samoa Joe. The WWE Intercontinental Championship, WWE RAW Women's Championship, WWE RAW World Tag Team Championship and the WWE Cruiserweight Championship will also all be on the line along with a lot more action. 

- "WWE Universal Championship Match, The Beast Meets The Destroyer": Brock Lesnar (c) vs. Samoa Joe: WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar finally returns after winning the title from Goldberg at Wrestlemania 33. RAW General Manager Kurt Angle announced a Fatal Five Way Match at WWE Extreme Rules to determine a new #1 Contender to the title. Samoa Joe went on to defeat Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns, Finn Balor and Bray Wyatt at WWE Extreme Rules to become the #1 Contender. Samoa Joe then went on to have a face to face meeting with Brock Lesnar's agent Paul Heyman. Joe told Heyman that he wanted everything Lesnar has. He wanted Heyman as his agent, the part time schedule and the WWE Universal Championship. Joe then gave a message to Heyman to send back to Lesnar. Joe said he didn't fear Lesnar at all and then proceeded to choke out Heyman in the Coquina Clutch submission. Lesnar arrived the following week and was confronted by Joe, who attacked and brawled all over the arena with Lesnar. Joe and Lesnar were finally separated by WWE officials, security and the RAW locker room. Can Samoa Joe defeat The Beast and leave WWE Great Balls of Fire the new WWE Universal Champion? Will Brock Lesnar take down the self proclaimed Destroyer and retain his title?

- "WWE Intercontinental Championship Match": The Miz (c) vs. Dean Ambrose: Last month at WWE Extreme Rules, The Miz defeated Dean Ambrose to win the WWE Intercontinental Championship. Dean Ambrose would go on to ruin Miz's victory celebration the next night on RAW by attacking Miz. Miz became paranoid thinking Ambrose would attack from anywhere, which caused a little friction between Miz and his wife Maryse. Miz would then recruit Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel as his entourage, who attacked Ambrose and helped Miz beat Ambrose down. Miz would go on to defeat Heath Slater one week before WWE Great Balls of Fire to retain his title with the winner meeting Dean Ambrose at WWE Great Balls of Fire. Can Dean Ambrose get his revenge on Miz and get back his WWE Intercontinental Championship? Will The Miz continue his Intercontinental Championship tour with another win over Ambrose?

- "WWE RAW World Tag Team Championship, 30 Minute Iron Man Match": Sheamus and Cesaro (c) vs. The Hardy Boys: Last month at WWE Extreme Rules Sheamus and Cesaro successfully defeated The Hardy Boys in a Steel Cage Match to win the WWE RAW World Tag Team Championship. The Hardy Boys would get their rematch two weeks later on RAW in a 2 Out of 3 Falls Match. The match ended in a 1-1 draw as both teams were counted out in the third and deciding fall and Sheamus and Cesaro retained the titles. RAW GM Kurt Angle announced that Sheamus and Cesaro would defend their titles one more time against The Hardy Boys at WWE Great Balls of Fire and this time it'll be a 30 Minute Iron Man Match with the team with the most wins at the end of the time limit winning the tag team titles. Can The Hardy Boys win back the tag team titles? Will Sheamus and Cesaro retain and finally defeat The Hardy Boys?

- "WWE Cruiserweight Championship Match": Neville (c) vs. Akira Tozawa: Akira Tozawa has been a wanted man this month and not just by Neville. Titus O'Neil has been seeking Tozawa to join his Titus Brand Faction with the guarantee of titles and money for Tozawa. Neville, meanwhile, felt that he was being disrespected by Tozawa after Tozawa stated that he could beat Neville. Titus O'Neil interrupted and stated that it was true and he knew for a fact that Tozawa could beat Neville anytime anyplace and could guarantee that with Titus' help Tozawa could capture the WWE Cruiserweight Championship. Two weeks before WWE Great Balls of Fire, Titus announced that Tozawa was now an official member of the Titus Brand and he worked out a deal to get Tozawa a WWE Cruiserweight Championship Match against Neville at WWE Great Balls of Fire. Can the rising star from Japan defeat Neville and capture the title? Will Neville prove to Tozawa, much like he's done to the other cruiserweights in the division, why he's the self proclaimed King of the Cruiserweights?

- "WWE RAW Women's Championship Match": Alexa Bliss (c) vs. Sasha Banks: Last month at WWE Extreme Rules, Alexa Bliss defeated Bayley in a Kendo Stick On A Pole Match to end their feud for now. RAW General Manager Kurt Angle announced a Gauntlet Match between all the top ladies in the RAW Women's Division to determine a new #1 Contender to the WWE RAW Women's Championship. Nia Jax ran through the whole roster during the gauntlet, only to fall short in the last match and losing by submission to Sasha Banks. After the match, Alexa Bliss confronted Sasha Banks face to face, but was immediately attacked and laid out by Sasha. Can Sasha defeat the self proclaimed queen of the RAW Women's Division? Will Alexa fend off Sasha and leave WWE Great Balls of Fire still the WWE RAW Women's Champion?

- "Ambulance Match": Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman: With the WWE Universal Championship picture heating up, both Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman continued to try to stop the other from getting a title shot. Strowman battled Reigns at WWE Payback, came out victorious and then continued to attack Reigns after the match. Strowman would again attack Reigns during an edition of RAW Talk, but Reigns fired back, beat up Strowman and slammed his arm into an ambulance door repeatedly. Strowman, with his arm in a sling stated he was injured, but would be back for Reigns once 100% healed. Reigns again attacked Strowman and beat on the injured arm with a steel chair. Strowman returned 100% healed a few months later and viciously attacked Reigns, after arriving in an ambulance. Strowman challenged Reigns to an Ambulance Match at WWE Great Balls of Fire, which Reigns accepted. Strowman showed up again, attacked Reigns and stuffed him in the back of an ambulance after Reigns accepted the match. Can Strowman defeat Reigns and claim what Reigns now calls his yard? Will Reigns defend his self proclaimed yard and finally defeat the monster Strowman?

- Seth Rollins vs. Bray Wyatt: The Seth Rollins and Bray Wyatt feud began back before WWE Extreme Rules, when Bray called out Rollins and stated that there was no way Rollins could ever beat Brock Lesnar, if given the opportunity. Rollins stated he could and called out Bray as being a gutless coward. Bray would then distract Rollins, causing him to lose to Samoa Joe a week later, forcing Rollins to call out Bray again as being a gutless coward. Bray promised Rollins a match at WWE Great Balls of Fire and stated that Rollins may have slayed a King at Wrestlemania 33, but there is no way he could slay a God like Bray. Two weeks before WWE Great Balls of Fire, Seth Rollins was announced as the wrestler on the cover of WWE 2K18, which brought out Bray Wyatt again, who attacked and beat down Rollins. Can Seth Rollins slay the self proclaimed God of the WWE? Will Bray Wyatt prove that Seth Rollins is in fact in over his head and overrated as a King slayer?

- Enzo vs. Big Cass: For several weeks a mystery began to unravel on who exactly was attacking Enzo and Big Cass from behind backstage. After weeks of questioning people such as The Revival and Big Show it was finally discovered that it was Enzo's partner Big Cass that was orchestrating the attacks all along. Cass stated that he was sick of Enzo running off at the mouth all the time and continuing to have to back Enzo up from all his ass kickings he took. Cass would then fake forgive Enzo and join back with Enzo only to set Enzo up and beat him down again. A week before WWE Great Balls of Fire it was announced that the former close partners would go one on one. Enzo couldn't wait as he found Cass backstage and jumped Cass until WWE Officials pulled them apart. Can Enzo get revenge on the man who he once considered his brother? Will Cass finally shut Enzo's mouth permanently?
