followed up last week’s SmackDown with another stellar effort as the company continued to roll on the road to SummerSlam. One of the biggest takeaways from last night’s show was Braun Strowman’s continued shift towards becoming a true monster after being taken out by The Fiend at the end of the Wyatt Swamp Fight at Extreme Rules. Midway through the show, Alexa Bliss took part in a sitdown interview to address her friendship with the Universal Champion. She admitted there could have been a more personal relationship with her friend and former Mixed Match Challenge partner, and suggested she could feel The Fiend and understood the phrase ‘a moth to a flame’.
She got incredibly emotional when she was asked about Braun claiming he ‘doesn’t give a damn about Alexa’ last week, adding another layer to this fantastic storyline. Later one – at the end of the show – Strowman stormed the ring showing off a new shaven headed look as he called out The Fiend.
Instead, he was met by Little Miss Bliss who urged him to snap out of it, but he accused her for mocking and using him. She tried to slap some sense into him, but the Monster Among Men lived up to his named as he hoisted her up for a gorilla press as the lights went out and The Fiend appeared. He joined Bliss in the ring but Strowman has disappeared, before being shown laughing and screaming on the big screen as The Fiend laughed along too and the show came to a chilling end.
