Jinder Mahal def. Braun Strowman via Count-out
Braun Strowman has long been a proponent of disregarding wins and losses in favor of causing as much destruction as possible, but those carefree days may be short-lived for Mr. Monster in the Bank: Not only does he have a match looming against Kevin Owens where any kind of loss will cost Strowman his Money in the Bank contract, but his tunnel vision landed him on the wrong side of a count-out loss to Jinder Mahal on Raw.
Stemming from Strowman’s decimation of Mahal and Sunil Singh on last week’s Raw, the match began as you might expect — with Strowman heading toward a rout of the former WWE Champion, despite The Maharaja’s attempt to Shanti Strowman into passivity. Then, Owens appeared, stealing Strowman’s Money in the Bank briefcase and leading The Gift of Destruction on a mad chase that gave Mahal a count-out win. Strowman seemed a bit more shaken up than usual by this loss and with good reason. If it happens at SummerSlam, he loses the contract. Clearly, he’ll have to be something he usually isn’t when it comes to his rivalries: Careful.
