The show started as last week’s assault of Braun Strowman on Roman Reigns was shown first.
Braun Strowman came out to the arena first. He said that he was proud to say that he broke Roman Reigns in half last week, he also took pride of injuring Roman Reigns. He promised that there will be no Roman Reigns this week.
Kurt Angle stopped him in his tracks. He asked Braun what was he trying to prove. He flipped over an ambulance with Roman Reigns being inside of it. Braun said there were still more to come. Kurt Angle made it official at Payback, Braun Strowman would face Roman Reigns. Braun Strowman did not like it.
It was kind of awkward to see Braun’s reaction. Braun asked for more competition; “I want more competition or else”. Kurt asked or else what. Braun did not say anything and left.
Match 1 – Chris Jericho vs. Samoa Joe
Seth Rollins was shown at the commentary table and it was also announced that Seth Rollins would meet Samoa Joe at Payback. The match was okay. It was more of a squash for Samoa Joe. He locked Jericho in the Coquina Clutch. Jericho survived in it for long before finally tapping out.
Backstage Braun Strowman attacked Goldust and R-Truth and beat them down.
Match 2 – Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson vs. Enzo and Cass
Gallows and Anderson was actually scheduled to face Golden Truth. As they got driven out by Braun Strowman, they had been replaced by Enzo and Cass. The match was okay, it was entertaining. Karl Anderson pinned Enzo Amore with a unique manoeuvre. He placed Enzo in the Suplex position and threw him to the turnbuckle where his knees directly crashed on the turnbuckle.
Winners – Gallows and Anderson
Backstage Strowman kept attacking people where Big Show pushed him to ground and said to look for people of his own size.
Match 3 – TJ Parkins vs. Jack Gallagher

The fans were behind Alexa throughout the match.

Main Event – Braun Strowman vs. Big Show
The match was really good. The ending of the match was just amazing. Braun Strowman superplexed Big Show and it broke the ring which was a very cool thing to see. We do not such things so often. The ring did not only broken, it completely exploded. It was one of the best moments of this year so far. Fans went really wild seeing this. The match had been called off after this incident. Braun Strowman stood tall at the end as Big Show could not move.
