The scheduled match from WWE Raw between Braun Strowman and Drew McIntyre witnessed a sudden change. Sami Zayn requested a match against Strowman after what he did to him, last week. Shane McMahon was the authority figure who added a stipulation to this bout. It stated if Sami Zayn wins the scheduled match under Falls Count Anywhere rules then he would replace Braun Strowman at Money in the Bank ladder match.
Now it was obviously not possible for a heel Sami Zayn to take out the monstrous force from WWE Raw. So Baron Corbin and Drew McIntyre joined forces with him in this No Disqualification affair. Both men hammered away at Braun Strowman in a three-way assault. Corbin and McIntyre put him through a ladder delivering a suplex. McIntyre then finished Strowman with a Claymore Kick and dragged Sami Zayn on top. This allowed Zayn to pick up the win and replace Strowman at Money in the Bank.
Prior to last night’s WWE Raw, we learned about the solid matchup via the following statements from WWE.com,
“One week after Braun Strowman shockingly tossed Sami Zayn into a dumpster, the rampaging Monster Among Men will throw down with the equally imposing Drew McIntyre, who will also face Strowman in the Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match. These two Superstars have been both enemies and allies in the past.”
Both Drew McIntyre and Braun Strowman are two monstrous figures of WWE Raw that should deliver PPV-caliber match. But they are both competing in Money in the Bank ladder match that forced their collision to happen on the United Kingdom edition of the show. Storyline wise, it was great to see this match happening. But WWE may have decided to save this match for a later big occasion.
WWE likes to protect both Braun Strowman and Drew McIntyre due to their strong status on WWE Raw. They do not often get pinfall or submission losses that easily. This is why the creative team decided to keep them away from a match which will eventually happen sooner than later. The Monster among Men is irate about what Corbin and McIntyre did to him on WWE Raw. So there will be a fallout in a short amount of time.
