Braun’s New Tree House
(Men’s Money in the Bank Qualifying Match: Braun Strowman def. Kevin Owens)
If anyone needs any more convincing that Braun Strowman is a megastar in the making, look no further than tonight’s opening segment. The guy came and absolutely nailed it, both with the tree house promo and the ensuing match with Kevin Owens, although the latter was little more than a squash match. In Kurt Angle’s MITB announcement, Braun Strowman had made his intentions very clear: He wants the briefcase. He wants to topple everyone once they are perched atop the ladder. And he will do anything to get a tree house without secret handshakes.
However, that is not to overlook the other wrestlers looking to be involved in the men’s MITB match. Kevin Owens, though defeated at the hands of Strowman, carried himself pretty well in the promo segment preceding it. He probably would be involved in the match in one way or another if he does not fight Sami Zayn at the June PPV. The “Fight Forever” match would probably happen sooner than later, though, as Kevin had made some not-so-subtle references to his scuffle with Zayn at Backlash during his war of words with the RAW General Manager.
And would you look at the potential stars lining up for Money in the Bank…
No Fiesta Tonight
(Baron Corbin and The Revival def. No Way Jose and Titus Worldwide)
The next chapter in a rehashed Baron Corbin vs No Way Jose feud was played out in front of our eyes tonight with a 3-on-3 tag team showdown. The heel side got a win tonight – a “retaliation” of sorts to Baron’s loss against No Way Jose courtesy of Titus World Slip a week before. It was a fun little match, but it made us a bit depressed to see The Revival being lowered to the level of Titus O’Neil. That reference was not intentional, we promise.
