In something of a surprise that maybe shouldn’t be all that surprising, Braun Strowman won the men’s Money in the Bank ladder match, giving him a contract to challenge for the Universal championship at any time over the next year. Considering his character, it would be strange for him to cash-in as a surprise. It would also be difficult to pull off, considering Brock Lesnar is still champion and, well, he’s never around.
Strowman is already talking like he might just go find him, though:
There have been reports that WWE could be eyeing Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns for the Universal title as the main event of SummerSlam, but perhaps Strowman’s win here indicates a change in those plans. After all, he wouldn’t be the first to announce his intentions of cashing in for a match at a later date. Why not do it again?
