The Fiend to Face Braun Strowman at SummerSlam
The power in the arena shut off and the Fiend’s entrance music started with red lasers and the occasional strobe light being the only illumination as the Fiend made his way to the ring.
We came back from commercial with the Fiend standing in the ring with Alexa Bliss sitting in front of him in the same clothes she wore last week. Good job to the WWE production team for that continuity.
He slowly circled her before backing into a corner and crouching, and then crawling toward her.
He held his hand out like he did last week, and slowly moved in for a mandible claw before Bliss stopped him.
She reached up and caressed his face, forcing him to pull away.
Strowman’s voice filled the arena as he appeared on the titantron, claiming he doesn’t care about Alexa. He only wants to destroy Bray Wyatt.
Strowman called him the most evil SOB on the earth, and that he had tried to resist but Strowman is now fulfilling his destiny.
He’s more than a man, he’s the thing nightmares are made of. He’s a Monster. He said Wyatt can have whatever he wants at SummerSlam if he’s brave enough to face the Monster.
Looks like WWE Smackdown Results and Recap have our match, and it was as intense as expected.
