Vince McMahon interrupted Heyman and compared Bálor-Lesnar to David and Goliath. Braun Strowman came out and told Lesnar if he still has the belt after Sunday, he’ll be waiting to tear him apart. Bálor then came to the ring and said he knows McMahon doesn’t believe in him, but he believes in his ability to beat Lesnar. Before he could leave the ring, McMahon announced Bálor would take on Strowman next.
1. Finn Bálor defeated Braun Strowman via disqualification. Lesnar F-5’d Bálor after he hit the Coup de Grâce on Strowman.
