Braun Strowman and Kane clashed on Monday Night Raw in a Last Man Standing match, with the winner earning a spot in the six-man Elimination Chamber match next month. The winner of that match will face Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship at WrestleMania 34.
But Strowman did not need much work to take down The Big Red Machine. 24 hours after both stars saw Lesnar escape with the Universal title at Royal Rumble, The Monster Among Men got some comeuppance.
With Kane stuck under the announcer’s table, Strowman flipped the entire thing over on the WWE legend, and won the match with ease:

Paramedics were dispatched to the scene, and Kane was taken out on a stretcher. Raw general manager Kurt Angle then confronted Strowman, who vowed that he would be the last man standing at Elimination Chamber.
The announcers were forced to move over to the ringside broadcast table instead. You have to think Michael Cole – who was attacked by The Monster Among Men two weeks ago – has had enough of Strowman making his job that much harder.
Strowman has received a massive push over the past year, destroying most of his opponents with relative ease. He’s gotten over with wins over Big Show, Roman Reigns and Kane. It’s evident that Vince McMahon is ready to roll with his next “big man” for the long run.
Though Strowman is confident he’ll be facing Lesnar at WrestleMania 34, most reports suggest that it’ll actually be Roman Reigns who faces The Beast Incarnate instead. Of course, things could change – or Strowman could be added to make it a Triple Threat match.
After the Strowman match, Elias defeated Matt Hardy (thanks to a distraction from Bray Wyatt), to also qualify. But it’s safe to say nobody will have left a statement in their Elimination Chamber qualifying match the way Strowman did.
