Samoa Joe sent a message to Brock Lesnar by choking out Paul Heyman on the latest episode of WWE Monday Night Raw that was aired from the Mohegan Sun Arena in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, on 5 June.

The Destroyer has become the number one contender for the Universal Championship by defeating Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, Bray Wyatt and Finn Balor in a fatal 5-way fight at the recently held Extreme Rules pay-per-view (PPV).

Joe moved from NXT during the "superstar shakeup", and in his first champion bout he will be facing the Beast Incarnate at July's Great Balls of Fire PPV.

In one of the segments of the show, Joe entered the ring and told the audience that he was going to destroy Lesnar. Heyman then entered the ring. Joe pulled Heyman close and told the latter that he was going to choke him. He told Heyman to exit the ring quickly and tell Lesnar about what was coming to him. Then Heyman got choked.
