24 hours removed from possibly his most impressive Universal Championship defense to date, Brock Lesnar may have already found his next challenger.
Lesnar managed to overcome the odds at Summer Slam when he won the fatal 4-way against Roman Reigns, Samoa Joe and Braun Strowman, despite at one point being stretchered out of the arena.
A new challenger emerges
One night later and RAW remained in the Barclays Center and began with Lesnar and his advocate Paul Heyman making their way to the ring.

Heyman would deliver a glowing testament to his client and sing the praises of the Universal Champion.
Lesnar would only be allowed to bask in the glory of his victory for so long however until he was confronted by the man who was responsible for him being placed on the stretcher at Summer Slam, Braun Strowman.
The Monster Among Men put Lesnar through two tables and tipped a third on top of him during the main event of Summer Slam.
The two then came face to face on RAW.
The meeting between two of RAW's top heavyweights didn't have many words spoken as both men collided in the ring.
Strowman would have the better of the exchange however as he would leave Lesnar laying in the ring - much to the horror of Paul Heyman.
It wouldn't end there though as Strowman would pick up the Universal title belt and raise it high above his head.
With the next RAW exclusive show No Mercy set for September 24th in Los Angeles, California, a title clash between the two was confirmed later in the show.
Strowman challenging Lesnar at No Mercy is the realisation of a plan that was rumoured to be executed before Summer Slam.
Finally come to fruition
Strowman has been tipped for a Universal title match through much of 2017 and was believed to be getting his chance at Extreme Rules earlier this year.
However an elbow injury delayed the plans and meant that Strowman's main event push would have to be put on hold.
