- Tonight's WWE RAW opening match in Uniondale, NY saw Braun Strowman defeat Kevin Owens to qualify for the men's Money In the Bank Ladder Match to take place at the MITB pay-per-view next month. Above is post-match video of Mike Rome talking to Braun about the win. Braun says he wasn't invited to Money In the Bank so he took his opportunity just like he does every week. Braun says he delivers every time he gets the chance and will do the same at Money In the Bank. Braun says he's going to knock every Superstar down at Money In the Bank, just like he did the treehouse as a kid, and will walk out with the contract.
