IN RING SEGMENT
BRAAAAAUNNN!!! We start the show with The Monster Among Men, Braun Strowman. Braun picks up the mic and says he wants to tell everyone a short story, one that has a happy ending. He says that a Beast and a Machine met a monster at the Royal Rumble, and the last one standing was the Monster Among Men, and he became the new Universal Champion.
Kurt Angle’s music hits, and he joined by a team of security. The security stays at the ramp while Kurt enters the ring. Kurt says that he has a story for Braun, but it doesn’t have a happy ending. He says that he could’ve ended the careers of Brock Lesnar and Kane, not to mention caused them thousands of dollars in damage. Braun says that it could’ve been much worse, and that he did his job last week.
Kurt says that he didn’t do his job, because his job is settled in the ring, but Braun says that he does whatever he wants. And at the Royal Rumble, if he wants to be the Universal Champion, he will. Kurt says that Braun is lucky that Kane and Brock can compete at all, and they will compete in what will no longer be a triple threat match. Braun Strowman is no longer in the match, and Kurt says in fact…he’s fired!!! Kurt walks to the back as Braun stares silently.
Braun walks backstage and he is followed by security. Braun seems to be walking out of the building but he then turns to the security and says “make me leave!” One of the security guards puts his hand on Braun’s shoulder and says “You gotta leave”. Braun grabs the security guard and throws him into the metal grate, and turns to completely decimate the entire security team. It is brutal and he tosses these men all over the place, and it ends with each one left lying. Braun says he’s not finished yet, and he’s not leaving until everyone gets these hands!
SHEAMUS & CESARO vs. TITUS WORLDWIDE
Apollo Crews and Sheamus start the match with a collar & elbow tie up, and Sheamus pushes Crews into his corner and tags in Cesaro, who starts to stomp on Crews. Cesaro tags in Sheamus again and bounce Crews off the ropes, and Crews takes advantage with a double dropkick. Crews tags in Titus, who gives a big shoulder block on Sheamus and throws him into the corner. Cesaro distracts Titus, which allows Sheamus to take control with a big kick, and then tags in Cesaro.
Cesaro chops Titus, who isn’t phased, and O’Neill reverses and starts to hit Cesaro with multiple chops of his own. Titus tags in Apollo, and Apollo bounces Cesaro off the ropes and Sheamus hits a blind tag that Apollo doesn’t see, and next thing he knows, he gets a top rope clothesline from Sheamus. Sheamus follows up with a backbreaker and holds Crews on his knee long enough for Cesaro to hit a top rope elbow. Sheamus goes for the pin but Apollo kicks out at two. Sheamus picks up Crews and Crews is able to duck Sheamus who tags in Titus!
Titus starts to go crazy, taking out Sheamus and then hits Cesaro with several clotheslines and knocks down Cesaro. Sheamus comes back in and knocks Titus down and he tags in Apollo, and Apollo tries to fight back but the Bar are too much for him and pick Apollo up for a tandem White Noise Slam, but out of nowhere, Jason Jordan’s music hits, which completely distracts Sheamus & Cesaro. Apollo Crews takes advantage and slithers out of Sheamus’ grasp and rolls him up for the three count!
Winners: Titus WorldWide
After the match, Seth Rollins comes out and seems angry at Jordan, but Jordan looks to be having fun costing Sheamus & Cesaro the match.
Backstage, we see Braun Strowman walking down the hall and he goes to enter Kurt Angle’s office. Braun starts to throw chairs all over the place, breaking them, breaking the television, and storming out.
