Reigns backed an ambulance up at high speed into a trailer a few months later.And still, Strowman wasn't finished with Reigns quite yet.
No, the path to this Fatal 4-Way is a long, intertwined patchwork involving all four participants, with significant history dating back to early 2015.
Paul Heyman promised that he and Lesnar would leave the WWE should Lesnar lose.
That possibility hangs like a giant ax over this match.
If, somehow, he emerges victorious here, it's hard to imagine a scenario where anyone outside of this quartet (most likely Reigns) could take that title from him.
Strowman has grown by leaps and bounds over the past year, and he can go with any of the top guys on Raw right now.
