Kevin Owens def. Braun Strowman in a Steel Cage Match via Escape

Kevin Owens def. Braun Strowman in a Steel Cage Match via Escape

Kevin Owens got what he wanted: He got away from Braun Strowman. The former Universal Champion defeated The Monster Among Men in a Steel Cage Match via escape, though “defeated” and “escape” deserve some seriously prominent air quotes around them: Owens only got out of the cage after the titanic Money in the Bank contract holder threw him off the top of it and sent him crashing through the announce table.

In a bout that continued Strowman’s recent month-long pursuit of humiliating Owens without regard for wins or losses, The Gift of Destruction demanded Owens fight him and then shook off everything the Canadian brawler threw at him, kicking out at one after a sequence that ended with a picture-perfect Frog Splash. Having absorbed Owens’ entire arsenal, Strowman set about punishing KO in the most agonizing fashion imaginable, tossing Owens into each side of the cage and calmly thwarting his attempts to crawl out of the door.

Owens, however, had an ace in the hole, locking Mr. Monster in the Bank to the top rope with a pair of handcuffs he had smuggled into the cage before beginning his climb. Strowman answered by snapping the cuffs, scaling the cage and throwing KO off the side of it, sending him falling through the commentary table to earn the victory — such as it was; Owens was placed in a neck brace and stretchered away from the ring. It’s a strategy from Strowman that certainly left something to be desired when it came to winning a match. But as a demonstration of raw power — and perhaps, a statement to Universal Champion Brock Lesnar — it was certainly hard to argue with.

In the aftermath of the shocking contest, WWE.com learned that Owens was taken to a local medical facility for evaluation.
