The Monster of All Monsters will meet The Nigerian Giant at WWE Crown Jewel.
After a few tense interactions over the past few weeks, Omos and MVP came to tonight’s WWE SmackDown on FOX to confront Braun Strowman. After MVP praised Braun for his size, but said he’d be exposed if he ever stood next to Omos, Braun issued a challenge for Crown Jewel. MVP then accepted, and brought out Omos for a face-off with Strowman in the middle of the ring. Omos towered over Braun, and shoved him to the floor when Braun looked up at him and started talking some trash. A shocked Braun got back to his feet at ringside, but barked more threats to Omos as he and MVP made their exit.
WWE then confirmed Strowman vs. Omos for Crown Jewel.
In a backstage interview with Kayla Braxton, Drew McIntyre revealed that WWE management was not happy with his parking lot beatdown last week on Karrion Kross and as a result, he had to attend meetings about the altercation. However, McIntyre was willing to keep his hands off of Kross, for now anyway. Announced by Drew McIntyre in the interview segment, he will face Karrion Kross at Crown Jewel in a steel cage match.
