Styles slapped Strowman to start the match and the big man sent the champion tumbling to the outside with a shoulder block. Styles gained the upper hand but Strowman tossed him into the air and dumped him. Styles went for the Phenomenal Forearm but Strowman countered it. Luke Gallows attacked Strowman when he tried to slam Styles. The referee disqualified Styles and the O.C. continued to attack Strowman. Rollins saved Strowman and took the fight to the O.C. Rollins and Strowman shook hands and the big man hinted their alliance is fragile when he held onto Rollins’ handshake.
Backstage, Rollins said he wanted to defend the Universal Championship against Strowman. The BeastSlayer also said he wanted to team up with Strowman to face the O.C. for the WWE RAW Tag Team Championship.
