Braun Strowman chokeslammed EC3 through the stage
In what was either a grand farewell or a dire warning of hands yet to be given, Braun Strowman celebrated the Superstar Shake-up in savage fashion by dismantling NXT acquisition EC3 on Raw in a protracted beating before their match could begin. This is not exactly as much of a given as it may seem, as The Top One Percent is called that for a reason. But Strowman is simply on a roll these days, and there was nothing EC3 — looking to notch “victory after victory after victory” — could do to stop himself from being beaten up the ramp and chokeslammed through the stage. Of course, this may have been something of a parting shot out the door for The Monster Among Men, who’s been a Raw fixture since the 2016 Brand Extension and could find himself shuttled off to SmackDown LIVE tomorrow. If he is, Raw will certainly miss him. But at the very least, if EC3 stays on Team Red, he won’t have to worry about him anymore. That, in itself, is a victory.
