Raw General Manager Kurt Angle confronted Braun Strowman

Kurt Angle confronts Braun Strowman: Raw, April 17, 2017

The Raw General Manager addresses Braun Strowman's attack on Roman Reigns and announces that The Big Dog will face The Monster Among Men at WWE Payback.

THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY — For those of you who missed it last week, Braun Strowman beat up Roman Reigns — badly — and then flipped over an ambulance with The Big Dog inside. It was nuts.

Such a Herculean display meant The Monster Among Men opened Raw with a victory lap of sorts, crowing about annihilating Reigns so severely that he wouldn't be appearing on Raw. But Raw General Manager Kurt Angle quickly cut the celebration short, announcing that he had sanctioned a match between Reigns and Strowman for WWE Payback.

After a brief outburst, Strowman seemed more or less okay with the prospect of sending The Big Dog to his "funeral," but he wasn’t pleased with The Olympic Hero telling him to take the night off. He demanded the WWE Hall of Famer present him with competition before dropping those two little words that tend to lead to very big consequences: “Or else.”
