WWE Raw results, live blog (Aug. 7, 2017): Last Man Standing

WWE Monday Night Raw comes waltzing back into our lives tonight (Aug. 7, 2017) from the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada featuring all the latest build to the upcoming SummerSlam pay-per-view (PPV) later this month in Brooklyn.

Advertised for tonight: Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman in a Last Man Standing match, an update on Bayley’s injury, and more!

Come right back here at 8 p.m. ET when the Raw live blog kicks off once the show starts on USA. It will be below this line here. (REMINDER: NO GIFS OR PICS ARE ALLOWED IN THE COMMENTS SECTION. OFFENDERS WILL BE BANNED.)


Alice, isn't it frightening? Alice, aren't you scared? Alice, isn't it wonderful, living life afraid? Don't look around the corner, I might be lurking there, liveblogging this here pro wrestling show for you, folks.

The show opens right into hype for tonight's Last Man Standing match before cutting to Miz, Maryse, and the Miztourage in the ring for MizTV.

Miz tells Toronto he's not in the mood and Raw will not begin until he gets what he wants, which is for Kurt Angle's illegitimate son Jason Jordan to get out there right now. He's sick of being blindsided and cheap-shotted on his own show, and that stops tonight. So he's inviting Jason out right here, right now (Van Halen is kicking ass in America?), so he can finish what he started.

Enter Kurt Angle. He says that Jordan will not be a guest on MizTV tonight, because he has a match against Curtis Axel, but there's somebody here who has questions that need to be answered, and that guest will meet and exceed MizTV standards. It's true, it's damn true, it's the Beast, Brock Lesnar!

Enter Brock Lesnar, flanked by Paul Heyman as always. Miz starts talking before they do and says he runs things here, and he wants to get this straight-- he mocks Heyman's intro schtick and says Lesnar is prettymuch guaranteed to lose at SummerSlam. It's kind of all Paul's fault, isn't it? An unprecedented situation where we see an unbeatable champion walk out without the title.

What happens then? Miz paraphrases Heyman about leaving WWE if Brock loses, and says if he's a gambling man and he's picking his next co-star and he wants that man to be a champion, he's putting that money on Roman Reigns, on Braun Strowman, on Samoa Joe, because one of them is walking out of SummerSlam as Universal Champion and Lesnar's gonna take his ball and go home.

Good riddance to bad rubbish, Miz says, and asks if Paul E. has anything to add. Heyman picks the mic back up and says after being put in his place by the Miz he humbly informs us that his name is Paul Heyman, etc., etc. and asks Miz and Maryse if they ever roleplay. Paul is all about the roleplay, you see. (Bet he's a great dungeon master!)

He asks Miz to imagine he's Roman Reigns, ready to fight, fist clenched, and so intense, for Bo Dallas to imagine that he's Samoa Joe, and for Curtis Axel with his beard to imagine that he's Braun Strowman, and he says Brock is going to give us a preview of SummerSlam while Miz stands there confused.

Lesnar takes the Miztourage out with double clotheslines! German suplex for Miz, one for Axel, one for Dallas, F-5 on Curtis! Another F-5 on Bo! One on Miz to boot!

Seth Rollins is walking backstage, a smile on his face. He'll be in action after the break.

Back from commercial right into Rollins making his entrance.

Seth Rollins vs. Sheamus

Seth right in with a dropkick and stomps, slingshot plancha after Sheamus bails but he gets caught and hossed into a fireman's carry. Rollins slips out to the apron, diving avalanche, mounted punches and he stalks after Cesaro for a moment before heading back in the ring. The Celtic Warrior tries to cut him off but gets his neck snapped over the top rope, springboard lariat, only two.

Throwing punches, putting the boots to him, straight rights, referee Rod Zapata backs Seth off and gives Sheamus the opportunity to crotch him on the top rope. Knocking him down with a punch, Cesaro taunts Rollins as Sheamus comes around. Seth with a chop but the Celtic Warrior slams him on the apron and we head to break.

Back from commercial, Sheamus cuts Rollins off with a back elbow and draws him up for the Beats of the Bodhran but stops after two because the crowd was chanting along and hits a Finlay Roll instead. Calling for the Brogue Kick, Seth ducks, hits a superkick, takes a knee in return, and finally lands an enzuigiri leaving both men laid out on the mat.

Celtic Warrior with the boots up on the corner, floating over to the turnbuckles but Rollins cuts him off and pops up thinking superplex. Sheamus knocks him down, the Kingslayer runs back in and snaps off an avalanche Frankensteiner! Avada Kedavra follows... NOT ENOUGH! Kawada kicks, Seth clutches him for a powerbomb, countered with a back body drop but Rollins stays in with a sling blade.

Fending Cesaro off, Seth heads up top but the Swiss Superman distracts him further, he stops short and Sheamus is ready to capitalize...

Sheamus wins by pinfall with a schoolboy pin.

As the Bar celebrate, Rollins wipes them out with a suicide dive! Forearms on forearms but That Damned Numbers Game Catches up to him and they put him into the barricade repeatedly! They take Seth in the ring while the crowd chants for Dean Ambrose... SPIKE WHITE NOISE!

The tag team champions celebrate up the ramp, no Dean in sight.

Commentary puts over the Strowman/Reigns feud to hype up their Last Man Standing and we go to break.

Back from commercial, Seth Rollins is limping along backstage when he runs into Dean Ambrose. Dean tells him he said not to do that again and now he looks like a real jerk. Rollins says he looks that way because he is one, and it's been three years, what does he have to do? He's done everything he can think of to prove that he's not the same guy he was, so what does Ambrose want him to do?

Dean tells him he's not getting burned again, welcome to being alone. He's got Cesaro tonight and like always, he's going it alone.

Jason Jordan makes his entrance but Kurt Angle is backstage with a medic checking on Curtis Axel. The medic will not clear him, so Angle walks up to a dude that's standing there in his gear and asks him to wrestle Jordan!

Jason Jordan vs. Jean-Pierre Goulet

Circling, Jason picks a leg and takes Goulet down, sending him scrambling into the ropes and backing off. Waistlock takedown follows, a cradle waistlock takedown, then the full waistlock, rolling him on the mat but Jean-Pierre finds sanctuary in the ropes and fires a few elbows off.

Jordan's had about enough of that, backs Goulet in the corner, overhead belly-to-belly suplex, charging shoulder thrust...

Jason Jordan wins by pinfall with the back suplex neckbreaker.

Commentary brings up Bayley's injury and informs us she'll address her situation. She's shown walking sadly backstage and we'll hear from her after the break.

Back from commercial, Bayley makes her entrance in somber fashion with no tube men.

We're played footage of the injury and Bayley is interviewed. She says it sucks and she can't watch the footage back because she knows it'll just make her mad. In the moment she felt her shoulder tense up and get warm and knew something was wrong but figured she needed to finish the match and beat Nia Jax to be taken seriously as a contender.

Normally she's a happy person but it's hard to be happy right now. She sat on her couch last week and went through all kind of feelings, but the WWE Universe's tweets and posts kept her going and she thanks those people, which gets boos for some reason. Canada, eh?

She's asked who she thinks will get the title match and she says she thinks her friend, the Boss, Sasha Banks, deserves it most.

Enter Sasha Banks, her triple threat qualifying match is after the break.

Back from commercial in time for our other two entrances.

Alexa Bliss joins the commentary booth for this one.

Alicia Fox vs. Emma vs. Sasha Banks (WWE Raw Women's Championship #1 Contender's Qualifying Match)

Circling, Fox goes in and Banks drops her but Emma is quick to capitalize with clubbing blows to the back. The Boss sidesteps a whip and sends Emma outside but Fox gets a two count off a boot and whips Sasha in the corner. Sidestep a big boot, quick cover, catch the foot, she fires a knee off, hits the ropes but Emma is ready to drag her outside... WHEELBARROW SUPLEX INTO THE APRON!

Cutting Alicia off, picking the leg for mounted punches into a two count cover, Emma now smashing her face into the turnbuckles before wrenching her back over the top rope. Fox back in it, a forearm and a turnbuckle smash of her own, biel, arm wringer to the bridging northern lights suplex... NOPE!

Emma puts Alicia into the turnbuckles, low dropkick but Banks is back in with a knee that cracks through the arena! Corner knees on both women, Fox gets an elbow up but just gets set up for the rope-hung double knee drop, Emma throws Sasha out of the ring and steals the cover... NOT ENOUGH!

A schoolboy gets one, Emma follows it up with a biel to set up the low sliding crossbody, this time Sasha breaks the pin up and drops Emma with a right! Back in, Fox with a small package, only two, Banks looking for the Bank Statement, blocked, Alicia going for the scissors kick, the Boss reverses into the Bank Statement but Emma breaks it up!

Quick cover, Sasha reverses again...

Sasha Banks wins by submission with the Bank Statement crossface on Emma, qualifying for the #1 contender's match for the Raw Women's Championship next week.

Alexa holds the title up high as Banks jaws at her from the ring.

Backstage, Braun Strowman is interviewed. He says he likes hurting Roman Reigns, feeling his bones crack and hearing him whimper as he pummels his body, but most of all he likes seeing hope leave his eyes as he gets back to his feet. He loves reminding Reigns of his dominance, and when he's around the Big Dog is nothing but a puppy, and his yard Braun's playground.

Strowman vows to become Universal Champion at SummerSlam and says tonight he'll be the only monster standing.

Commentary hypes that match as well as Ambrose/Cesaro and we go to break.

Back from commercial, Enzo Amore makes his entrance, he does the deal.

He wants to introduce somebody that ain't just seven feet tall, he's the World's Largest Athlete, and you can't teach that--


Enter Big Show. Enzo says teamwork makes the dream work, and they're like a dream team. When Show holds him up he feels like his head's in the clouds, like he's an album cover, but let's talk about the fist. It has a GPS and he dropped a pin right on location last week. Big says he can't give his fist the credit, because Big Cass' chin is real SAWFT.

He says Cass needs to learn respect, and last week he had a hard lesson--

Enter the Club. Karl Anderson asks if they're good brothers and Luke Gallows says nope. Karl says they've won nothing but if they want a challenge the former Raw Tag Team Champions are standing right here, and Gallows adds "abso-hoot-ly" and they can be added to the long list of teams around the worldski that have been defeated by the good brothers, and they can say they've defeated another pair of nerds.

Amore says he didn't hear a word they said because he was distracted by a thought in his head, and he hates to be that guy, but if Gallows were to put his pinky to his mouth they'd be Dr. Evil and Mini Me. Spot on, so rather than just standing there and looking ugly, let's get a referee out and have a match!

Big Show & Enzo Amore vs. the Club (Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows)

Show and Anderson to start, a goozle for Anderson and he fends Gallows off, leaving the Club headed up the ramp for a breather as we go to break.

Back from commercial, Gallows is in on Enzo and lays him out with a lariat. Tag to Anderson, a series of knee drops to the face get a two count and Machine Gun locks an armbar on. Amore struggles to his feet and Karl yanks him back, following with a whip but Enzo dodges and Anderson is crotched in the corner.

Crawling for tags, Luke comes in first and cuts Amore off. Enzo throwing hands with desperation, Big Hoot yanks him over and off the ropes and lays him back out with a superkick before Big Cass makes his way down the ramp. Big Show steps away from the corner to keep an eye on him and Gallows nails the giant with a boot. Tag to Anderson, thinking Magic Killer but Enzo gets an O'Connor roll off on Luke, Karl takes advantage of the confusion...

The Club win by pinfall with a Sick Kick from Karl Anderson on Enzo Amore.

Big Cass jumps Big Show after but Enzo takes him out with a suicide dive! Throwing hands and knees, Cass straightens up and chucks Amore into the barricade! Throwing him in the ring but Enzo has the wits about him to leave as Cass continues prowling around the ring after him. They turn a corner... the WMD lays Big Cass out!

Show asks Cass how he's doing and he and his little buddy take their leave.

Commentary recaps the Balor/Wyatt interaction from last week and we see Finn backstage getting his jacket on and walking, he'll be doing stuff after the break.

Back from commercial, Finn Balor makes his entrance.

Finn greets Toronto and says this is Balor Club, and Too Sweets the crowd in response to their chant of the same. He asks if everybody saw him kick Bray Wyatt's teeth down his neck last week, and that's hard because everybody knows Bray loves to talk. He's gotta be honest, Wyatt gives him the creeps.

He strikes Finn as the kind of person that cares less about winning and losing and more about hurting people or having them fear him, but if there's one thing he's learned in life, it's that when fear comes knocking you stand up and kick fear in the face. So, Bray, a little advice-- the next time you want to come at Finn, you'd better not miss.

Whether it's at SummerSlam or here tonight, whatever he wants to start, Balor will finish.

(Wyatt noise.)

When the lights come back up, Bray is in the middle of the ring as Finn is perched on the turnbuckles. Charging in, up and over, Finn sidesteps the charge and lands a kick to the face! Sling blade follows, Balor sizes him up...

(Wyatt noise.)

This time Finn finds himself alone in the ring as Wyatt laughs from the tron. He says he can tell why the people like Finn so much, because when he flies, they fly. But when he rips Balor from the heavens they'll all fall down with him. Run.

On another note, commentary informs us that Ambrose/Cesaro is up next, after the break.

Back from commercial in time for entrances.

Cesaro vs. Dean Ambrose

Collar and elbow, jockeying for position, Cesaro traps Ambrose in the corner and breaks dirty with a shove. Back to the lockup, Dean gets a waistlock and takes him down, reversed to a waistlock of his own, Ambrose trying to pick the leg, the Swiss Superman gets hold of his arm but it's reversed to a hammerlock. Reversed to a side headlock, Dean shoots him off and takes the obligatory shoulder block.

Ambrose goes behind with a waistlock, shift to a side headlock, shot off and he hits the shoulder block on Cesaro this time. Test of strength, Cesaro forcing Dean to the mat for repeated quick covers, trying to break his bridge with the knees, Ambrose escapes with a monkey flip! Back to the collar and elbow, right in the corner, referee Chad Patton counts and Cesaro breaks dirty once more with a whirlwind of strikes.

Uppercuts on uppercuts, backing Dean against the ropes, whip, Ambrose comes off with a lariat into mounted punches! Punches in the corner, Cesaro counters... GALLON THROW INTO THE TURNBUCKLE! Cover's only good for a nearfall, the Swiss Superman sends Dean off the ropes for a lariat that gets two more and grabs a figure four wristlock.

Ambrose to his feet, elbows to force a break, whip, back body drop scouted with the kick but Dean thinks fast and hits a swinging neckbreaker and sends Cesaro outside before hitting a plancha on him for good measure. Back in, Sheamus running interference, Dean gets in his face and Cesaro takes full advantage with an uppercut to the back of his head and we go to break.

Back from commercial, Cesaro has Ambrose locked down in an abdominal stretch but Dean fights back with punches. Whip to the corner, up and over, the Swiss Superman snaps Ambrose's neck over the ropes and climbs but gets cut off up top. Struggle in the corner, Cesaro knocks him down with a headbutt but Dean is right back in, they perch on top, Cesaro throwing headbutts from the ringpost!

He poses a moment and draws Ambrose up, getting body blows for his trouble. He's thinking superplex to the outside but Dean counters with a superplex of his own! To their feet, Ambrose throwing chops and punches, off the ropes, duck a lariat but Cesaro catches him into a backbreaker for a nearfall!

Off the ropes for a forearm to the kidney, another, looking for a third but Dean cuts him off and they trade forearms. Ambrose wins the exchange but Cesaro gets in with a knee, gutwrench into a Canadian backbreaker rack, wrenching it in but Dean is able to float out and goes back to throwing hands.

Off the ropes, Cesaro wiped out by axehandles and a lariat, but he sidesteps a charge and a big uppercut gets another nearfall! Deadlift Karelin lift, rolling through for a second, still not enough to put Ambrose away. Looking for the Neutralizer, countered with a back body drop, Cesaro charges into a boot, Dean climbs, up and over, looking for Dirty Deeds but it gets blocked.

Double leg into stomps, Cesaro looking for the Sharpshooter but Dean counters with right hands. Charging in, low bridge sends the Swiss Superman outside, Ambrose going to dive but he gets cut off by an uppercut, in the ring for the cover... NO GOOD! Charging shoulder block, a gourdbuster over the ropes sends Dean outside, Cesaro climbs, thinking about the deadlift superplex but Ambrose does his damnedest to block and hits an avalanche gourdbuster.

La Magistral gets a nearfall, both men wobbly on their feet, Dean throwing hands but Cesaro gets a rush of punches off in return, big boot sets up the pendulum lariat and both men are wiped out! Back to the their feet, underhooks, Sheamus running interference, Cesaro with the double leg, the Sharpshooter is on in the middle of the ring!

Ambrose posting up on his hands, crawling for the ropes but Cesaro drags him right back into the middle where there is no escape! Again, crawling, desprerate for the ropes and he gets a hand on right in front of Sheamus! Cesaro with disdainful palm strikes, off the ropes, Dean back body drops him to the outside!

Willing himself to climb... DEAN AMBROSE DIVING ELBOW DROP TO THE OUTSIDE! Referee Chad Patton counts as Ambrose rolls Cesaro back in, climbing again, again Sheamus runs interference but Dean is able to think quickly...

Dean Ambrose wins by pinfall with a schoolboy pin.

The Bar go on the offensive after... SETH ROLLINS MAKES THE SAVE! Back body drop for Cesaro and he takes Sheamus down for mounted punches in the ring! A lariat sends the Celtic Warrior outside and Rollins stands tall! Dean struggles to get to his feet and Seth turns to face him as he reaches his knees.

Ambrose gets to his feet and he and Rollins look at each other for a long moment. Dean considers the moment, clearly torn... HE EXTENDS HIS FIST! Seth hesitates before shaking his head and walking off.

We get a recap of our opening segment, because Raw is three hours long, as well as a recap of the #1 contender's match for the Cruiserweight Championship Akira Tozawa won on 205 Live last week.

In the locker room, Titus Worldwide are hanging out and pre-celebrating Tozawa's reign as Cruiserweight Champion when Neville rolls up to poop on their party. He's not here to fight, he's here to scout his competition, if Tozawa is indeed competition. Titus O'Neil takes issue with the idea of doubting Akira is competition after all Neville has done to try and take him out.

The King says Tozawa crushed Ariya Daivari's dreams and tonight he chooses to go toe to toe with the same man who now has nothing to lose? Sounds risky.

And so we go to break.

Back from commercial in time for entrances.

We get a promo from Daivari about how Tozawa denied him a chance for gold, but he's not going to deny him revenge.

Titus O'Neil joins the commentary desk.

Akira Tozawa vs. Ariya Daivari

Tozawa leading with his battle cry, collar and elbow, the Dragon Gate man gets a hammerlock but Daivari backs him right in the corner and breaks dirty with an elbow. A big right gets a nearfall, arm wringer into short-arm shoulder blocks and a backbreaker, all good for another two count. Jawing at Akira, he fights back with chops, whip reversed, corner lariat, another two count for Ariya.

Grounded full nelson applied, wrenching it in as Tozawa tries to get to his feet and successfully breaks, but Daivari slams him to the mat and makes another quick cover. Top wristlock, the Stamina Monster stamping his feet to get the energy to escape. Body blow gets a club, Tozawa snaps a Frankensteiner off that sends Daivari to the ropes!

A forearm knocks him down, off the ropes... suicide dive connects! In the ring the cover gets a nearfall, kick ducked, Akira slides low but Ariya catches him and clubs away at the shoulder. Tozawa slips out, back suplex lands, he climbs up top...

Akira Tozawa wins by pinfall with the diving senton.

Titus celebrates with Tozawa in the ring.

Roman Reigns is interviewed backstage. He says he didn't watch MizTV but everybody was talking about it. He doesn't care if Brock stays or goes, and he wasn't afraid to retire the Undertaker, so he has no problem retiring Lesnar at SummerSlam. As for tonight, it won't be any different than last week, and he'll be the last man standing.

SummerSlam will be no different, and he'll walk out as Universal Champion.

Mickie James makes her entrance, we'll have another three-way qualifier for women's title contendership after the break.

Back from commercial, Dana Brooke is in the ring and we're just in time for our last entrance of the bunch, and Alexa Bliss is back on commentary.

Dana Brooke vs. Mickie James vs. Nia Jax (WWE Raw Women's Championship #1 Contender's Qualifying Match)

Brooke right in on Jax and she gets shoved to the mat! James charges in after and gets bieled across the ring! Headbutt for Dana, Mickie in with kicks, staggering Nia, but Jax picks her up and throws her at Brooke on the charge. Stacked up in the corner, they both sidestep the charge and she eats ringpost hard.

Dana and Mickie trading hands in the middle of the ring, intense forearms into kicks, James floats out of a straight suplex and hits a neckbreaker for a two count as Sasha Banks looks on backstage. Calling for the DDT but Jax is back in and runs her over! Nia draws Dana up but gets caught with a jawbreaker and backed into the corner with elbows and a dropkick.

Jax charges out of the corner and runs Brooke over with a lariat! Scoops her up, fallaway slam, James in with a diving seated senton, trying to steal the pin but Nia cuts her off and throws her outside! Dana on Jax's back, but she gets shrugged off and mared to the mat...

Nia Jax wins by pinfall with a running leg drop on Dana Brooke, qualifying for the Raw Women's Championship #1 Contender's Match next week.

Commentary shills for the WWE Network before hyping up Reigns/Strowman, which will begin after the break.

Back from commercial we get some hype for 205 Live, which will feature Rich Swann vs. TJ Perkins TJP tomorrow.

A video promo from Goldust follows, he quotes the Graduate and asks if we missed him. Of course we did, and they say absence makes the heart grow fonder, and he has so much love to give he's about to burst. He cannot wait to share his next great masterpiece with us. SummerSlam is under two weeks away and he'll be watching very, very closely.

Will he find his next hero, villain, or perhaps a beautiful new starlet to grace his silver screen? Whoever it is, under his direction, they'll shine like gold. The Golden Age... is back.

Commentary recaps Cass/Show and Big Cass walks up to Kurt Angle to demand a match against Big Show at SummerSlam. Kurt says he was thinking the same thing but Cass says he wants to guarantee Enzo won't be able to get involved. Angle asks if he wants him in a shark cage or something and Cass likes the idea, wanting Amore to see as he turns Big Show into seven feet of failure.

Angle says it could be quite the attraction, and makes the match official. Cass thanks him and walks off, and Kurt belatedly hopes that Enzo isn't afraid of heights.


Braun Strowman makes his entrance, and the match will begin after the break.

Back from commercial, we're informed that Bray Wyatt vs. Finn Balor will be happening at SummerSlam, and commentary hypes up the Banks/Jax #1 contender's match for the women's title for next week.

Braun Strowman vs. Roman Reigns (Last Man Standing Match)

Braun heads to the ramp as Roman makes his entrance and Reigns cuts him off with a slicing right! Strowman throws him into the barricade and biels him into the ring, where the Big Dog meets him with punches but he can't get him up for the Samoan drop and Braun clubs him to the mat. A headbutt, Reigns reeling and Strowman sends him off the ropes before taking him out with a backfist!

Roman to his feet, Braun with another headbutt, hard whip into the corner, again referee John Cone begins the count but Reigns gets up. Strowman with a single knee facebreaker and the Big Dog throws a right in return. The monster among men clubs him down again and they head off the ropes, where Braun knocks Roman outside with a single strike.

The Big Dog beats the count on the floor and we go to break.

Back from commercial, Braun is throwing the steel steps in the ring, like you do. He chucks Roman in after but the Big Dog cuts him off and backs him up with lariats. Corner lariats follow, finishing with the Mafia kick, leaving Strowman standing but staggered. Off the ropes, another Mafia kick, Reigns picks up the steps and clobbers Braun with them to start a count!

Braun up at two and the Big Dog knocks him back down with the steps! Another shot with Strowman on the mat, a third, and Reigns chucks the steps out of the ring! Referee John Cone counting again, Braun up at five using the ropes for leverage and Roman calls for the Superman Punch... but gets caught into a bear hug! I don't have to bear it because Reigns gets right out!

Strowman hits the Yokosuka Cutter and leaves Reigns for dead, but the Big Dog gets up at eight and staggers into the ropes. Scooping him up but Reigns slips away, off the ropes, Braun pops him up... SUPERMAN PUNCH CONNECTS! Both men down, both up at about six, Roman calls for the spear but Strowman counters with a dropkick!

Reigns up at seven and Braun charges in but he sidesteps and the monster among men eats post and ends up outside! Both men down as Cone counts, both men make it to their feet in the back half of the count. The Big Dog heads outside and connects with the Drive-By! Stalking, trying to figure out what he needs to do to end this as Braun beats the count, and Roman gets a table out and slides it in the ring.

Headed around, another Drive-By but Strowman counters with a lariat! Back in the ring, Braun sets the table up as Reigns recovers. He heads over, Roman still down and out, and he welcomes the Big Dog to his playground, which wakes him up and he hammers Strowman with punch after punch! Getting underneath him, fireman's carry... SAMOAN DROP THROUGH THE TABLE!

Both men down and out, Cone counting, and Strowman breaks by rolling out of the ring and to his feet. Braun chilling by the timekeeper's barricade, Reigns calls for it, charges around... BRAUN THREW A DESK CHAIR AT HIS GODDAMNED HEAD! WHAT IN THE WORLD?! ROMAN BARELY BEATS THE COUNT!

Fighting into the crowd, Strowman gets a big right off but Reigns fires back with big open hand strikes and slams Braun's head into the side of the announce desk again and again! Drive-By on the stage! Braun throws Roman into the LED boards! The Big Dog beats the count but Strowman throws him into the LED boards again!

Braun picks the announce table apart as Reigns recovers and pulls him over, lifting him up but Roman floats out, Superman Punch staggers the monster, another wobbles him further but he's still on his feet! Calling for the spear, Strowman counters with a boot! Reigns gets to his feet, charges down the ramp... SPEAR ON THE FLOOR!


Braun Strowman wins, beating the standing ten count first.

Braun celebrates in the middle of the ring.

That's the show, folks.
