Braun Strowman has had an immense 2018. He has won the Greatest Royal Rumble and the Money in the Bank contract. However, another successful wrestler has recently challenged his success. That wrestler is Kevin Owens. In recent months Raw television has been eventful full of twists and turns. At Extreme Rules, their feud escalated with Strowman throwing Owens of a Steel Cage.

Originally Owens planned to befriend Strowman but would receive no reaction. In the following weeks, their interactions would increase with Strowman embarrassing Owens. He would tip a portable toilet off of the stage containing a trapped Owens, see video below. These events plus their interaction at Extreme Rules led General Manager Kurt Angle to announce a match at SummerSlam. 

Their match is going to be exciting. However, it is the stipulation which will be the most intriguing. Braun Strowman can lose his MITB contract with any outcome. Ultimately he must win by submission or pinfall. Both performers are excellent in the ring. However, their best attribute is generating crowd reactions. This match is going to be extremely exciting. Moreover, it has dramatic consequences for the Universal Championship scene.
