Finn Bálor came to Raw looking for a fight with Kane, and he wasn’t the only one. The first-ever Universal Champion had given The Big Red Machine such a battle that Kane hit Bálor with a chair to end their bout in a disqualification, but a grisly post-match beatdown on Finn led to the re-emergence of Braun Strowman, who shrugged off a chair swing with such impunity that Kane retreated in terror.
The Monster Among Men, of course, showed no quarter to his enemy, brutalizing The Big Red Machine outside the ring and delivering a Running Powerslam atop the steel steps before jamming the chair into Kane’s throat twice — turnabout from last week’s savagery. The Devil’s Favorite Demon was forced to flee through the WWE Universe to escape Strowman, who surprisingly didn’t pursue the former WWE Champion to inflict more punishment. For now, it seems, getting even was enough. But that doesn’t mean he’s finished just yet.
