This week’s episode of RAW kicked off with Braun Strowman vs. Kevin Owens in a qualifying match for the Men’s Money In The Bank Ladder Match which is scheduled to take place at the Money In The Bank Pay-Per-View on June 7, 2018. Post-match in a backstage interview with Mike Rome, a victorious Strowman said that he wasn’t invited to the Money In The Bank which is why he took his opportunity just like he does every week.
Braun stated that he delivers every time he gets the chance and will do the same at Money in The Bank Pay-Per-View. The Monster Among Men further added that he’s going to knock every Supertsra down at June’s event, in the same way he did the treehouse as a kid, and will walk out with the Money In The Bank contract.
