Ordinarily, Braun Strowman shows up and demands competition. But after weeks of being targeted by Kane, he had a more specific demand in mind: He wanted The Big Red Machine, and while what ended up happening didn’t resemble a victory in the traditional sense, Strowman never said anything about beating Kane in a match.
What he did do was beat The Devil’s Favorite Demon around the ring with savage abandon, using his fists and a steel chair to send the former WWE Champion scurrying for cover. He even nearly superplexed Kane through a table on the outside, though The Big Red Machine evaded that grisly fate. Instead, Strowman ultimately hoisted his hellish foe his shoulders and delivered a Running Powerslam that drove both men through the canvas of the ring, and all this despite the match never officially starting.
In a way, perhaps, that’s the most emphatic victory Strowman could ever achieve over Kane: As The Big Red Machine knows better than anyone, it’s one thing to defeat a man in the ring. It’s another to send him to hell.
