DENVER — Seth Rollins talked the talk, and he walked the walk … until Braun Strowman put him in the ground. The Kingslayer’s plan to defy expectations by challenging Strowman ended in the same familiar fashion as The Monster Among Men’s other conquests — Running Powerslam, 1-2-3 — though not before the Raw Tag Team Champion landed some impressive maneuvers of his own after a brief brawl outside the ring.
Nonetheless, not only did Strowman prevail, he quickly went to work on his foe after the bell. Rollins received some post-match reinforcement in the form of his tag team partner, Dean Ambrose, but Strowman made quick work of The Lunatic Fringe as well. Adding insult to injury, Cesaro & Sheamus resurfaced to inflict some more punishment on the Raw Tag Team Champions in the form of a Neutralizer to Ambrose and a Brogue Kick to Rollins. If nothing else, "The Bar" will not be cleared so easily.
