So while Braun fought for his place in the title race, Drew fought for a chance to keep the match between him and ‘The All-Mighty’ one-on-one, as he knew a third party would make things a lot more complicated. 

At first, Lashley and MVP watched the proceedings of the fight with eager eyes. Drew soon gained the upper hand over the much bigger Strowman and was about to slay the beast when MVP interfered along with Lashley from the other side. 

The two distracted McIntyre, and Strowman had enough time to react and he scooped up the former WWE Champion for a huge running Powerslam, scoring the pinfall victory. 

With this major win, Braun Strowman booked this spot in the match for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania Backlash. Bobby Lashley will now have to step in the ring for a Triple Threat match and will face two of the most dominant foes on the roster. 

It will be extremely hard for each of them to walk away with the title, and it will be a hellish powerhouse showdown. Lashley is confident that he can’t put down his foes and prove his dominance over the title and wants to be undisputed.
