Braun Strowman def. Finn Bálor

May 22, 2018

Stephanie McMahon sanctioned Raw’s main event between Braun Strowman and Finn Bálor in the spirit of friendly competition as the Men’s Money in the Bank Match approaches. But Finn got so comfortable with having Strowman as his partner (the pair had initially approached Stephanie for a rematch against Dolph Ziggler & Drew McIntyre) that he forgot what The Monster Among Men does to his competition.

He was quickly reminded. The Monster Among Men didn’t hesitate to visit the same kind of otherworldly punishment on Bálor that he made his name on in the days before he won the Raw Tag Team Titles with a middle-schooler and turned These Hands into a T-shirt friendly catchphrase. The former Universal Champion rallied with an outside-the-ring stint that ended in a Coup de Grâce off the barricade, but The Gift of Destruction thwarted the Coup de Grâce proper by hoisting Finn onto his shoulders for a Running Powerslam. 

Strowman followed up with a second Running Powerslam before making the deciding pinfall as a message to the rest of the Money in the Bank field. His message to tonight’s opponent was a bit more charitable — Strowman scooped Bálor off the mat and propped him up in the corner in a show of respect — but for all the extraordinary things Finn Bálor can do, there’s at least one that remains beyond his grasp.
