WWE Raw: Braun Strowman and Big Show destroy the ring
UPI News Service, 04/18/2017
The ring was left in shambles Monday on Raw following the main event match between giants Big Show and Braun Strowman.
Big Show had challenged The Monster Among Men earlier in the night after Strowman wreaked havoc across the Raw locker room taking out R-Truth, Goldust and Kalisto one week after his vicious assault on Roman Reigns.
The hard-hitting match saw both big men land huge blows against each other including Big Show's signature KO Punch, but it was not enough to keep Strowman down.
Things came to a head after Strowman impressively performed a superplex on The World's Largest Athlete which collapsed the ring and brought their match to a stop.
As the crowd cheered, Strowman was able to stand up again following the destruction as referees attended to the laid out Big Show.
Strowman will be able to continue his reign of terror April 30 at WWE Payback in a match against Reigns who will be looking for revenge.
Also on Raw, Sasha Banks, Alexa Bliss, Nia Jax and Mickie James competed in a Fatal 4-Way match to determine who would be the number one contender to Bayley's Raw Women's Championship.
Bliss came out on top after she dropkicked Jax out of the ring to pin Banks who was knocked out from Jax's Samoan Drop.
Bliss will now be facing Bayley for the title at Payback after joining the Raw brand from Smackdown last week during the Superstar Shake-up.
Other moments Monday included Samoa Joe defeating Chris Jericho, Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson defeating Enzo Amore and Big Cass, Intercontinental Champion Dean Ambrose attacking The Miz during a segment of Miz TV, TJ Perkins defeating Gentleman Jack Gallagher, Finn Balor defeating Curt Hawkins and Raw Tag Team Champion Jeff Hardy defeating Cesaro.
