In something of a surprise that maybe shouldn’t be all that surprising, Braun Strowman won the men’s Money in the Bank ladder match, giving him a contract to challenge for the Universal championship at any time over the next year. Considering his character, it would be strange for him to cash-in as a surprise. It would also be difficult to pull off, considering Brock Lesnar is still champion and, well, he’s never around.
Strowman is already talking like he might just go find him, though:
It’s official. I am Mr. Monster in the Bank. Not much longer until I come looking for you Brock. #MITB— Braun Strowman (@BraunStrowman) June 18, 2018
There have been reports that WWE could be eyeing Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns for the Universal title as the main event of SummerSlam, but perhaps Strowman’s win here indicates a change in those plans. After all, he wouldn’t be the first to announce his intentions of cashing in for a match at a later date. Why not do it again?
Yeah, let’s make this happen.
