Jason Jordan didn’t defeat Braun Strowman, but he did survive him, which is about all he could have hoped for. And, after a stunning turn of events, he owes a big thank-you to Kane for allowing that to happen.
Despite Jordan’s insistence that he was back to full strength, his knee buckled repeatedly in his attempts to muscle The Monster Among Men around the ring. He did manage to get Braun off his feet at one point, but that was about the extent of his offense, and things were looking bad after Jordan spilled to the outside.
At that moment, The Big Red Machine rose from beneath the ring and chop-blocked Strowman to end the match in a disqualification. Moments later, Kane seized a steel chair to repay Strowman for his savagery the previous week, and his assault included a ruthless strike to the throat that left The Gift of Destruction doubled over and gasping for air. He didn’t go down, of course, and he would later refuse medical attention. But the sight of the staggered Strowman was an ominous sign that Kane has plenty of fire in him yet.
