Earlier in the day, the WWE title match at WrestleMania Backlash was promoted with an infographic. Braun Strowman knew which number to hype.

Whoever helped Strowman, Drew McIntyre & Bobby Lashley put together their Triple Threat match knew it, too. These are three of the most impressive physical specimens in wrestling, and watching them destroy each other was a hell of a show.

The champion was written out of the action for the middle portion of the match with this “explosive” spot...
That cleared the stage for McIntyre and Strowman to put on a slobberknocker within a slobberknocker. This isn’t even the most impressive part of this spot, as Braun caught Drew in the air mid-Claymore before sending him through the announce desk:
McIntyre was able to connect with his finisher in the ring moments later, and it was then that the All Mighty returned. Throwing Drew out of the ring, Lashley speared Strowman in two for three to retain his WWE title.
