Braun Strowman Threw Kevin Owens Off A Giant Ladder At Money In The Bank


WWE Network

The main event of Sunday night’s Money In The Bank pay-per-view was the men’s MITB match that featured Rusev, Samoa Joe, The Miz, Kofi Kingston, Finn Balor, Bobby Roode, Kevin Owens, and Braun Strowman.

As he planned all week, Kevin Owens got the rest of the superstars to gang up on Strowman to incapacitate the Monster Among Men to start the match, with him ultimately being buried under a pile of ladders at the top of the stage. Strowman remained there for a good 10 minutes before he eventually emerged to attack Finn Balor as he tried to pluck one of those ladders off the Braun pile.

Owens, Rusev, and Samoa Joe teamed up to once again try to take out Strowman, with Owens climbing one of the gigantic ladders while Rusev and Joe put him on a table. Strowman shook free of those two and climbed the ladder to grab Owens, who begged for mercy to no avail. Strowman pulled him all the way up the ladder, and proceeded to launch poor Owens through a pair of tables below in a Mankind-esque bump from Owens.

I’m not sure anyone takes worse bumps these days in ladder matches than Owens and Sunday night he upped the ante with this one. He never emerged from his ladder death fall, although they did show him moving afterwards so we are led to believe he’s as OK as one can be after this fall.

Strowman, on the other hand, proceeded to destroy just about everyone on his way to winning the Money In The Bank briefcase. Owens toss aside, the best moment of the match from Strowman was him running through a ladder, taking out Balor and Roode and leading to an all-time Miz face as he realized he was the only superstar standing other than the Monster Among Men.

With Alexa Bliss cashing her briefcase in less than an hour after winning it during the Nia Jax-Ronda Rousey title match, Strowman holds the only briefcase remaining and Brock Lesnar will be his target…eventually, one would assume, whenever Lesnar decides to defend his title again.
