Today's Monday Night Raw belonged to Finn Balor, who proved his naysayers (Hello, Vince McMahon!) wrong and showed us why he has the abilities to be on top of the chain. Initially, it seemed as if the Monster amongst Men, Braun Strowman was the shoo-in for the Universal Championship match against Brock Lesnar. However, during today's Raw, the wrestler got into a beef with Baron Corbin and things went straight to hell. Things got rough when Braun beat up a limo driver and sent him flying over the hood of the limo. Out came Vince McMahon and because of his violent behaviour, he was stripped off of the opportunity to go one-on-one with Brock Lesnar at the 2019 Royal Rumble.

Vince was left to choose who would challenge The Beast and during his promo addressing the WWE Universe, the chairman of WWE was interrupted by the returning John Cena, Drew McIntyre and Finn Balor. While Cena proclaimed how he has been the leader of ruthless aggression throughout his impressive career, Drew stated that he was the one in charge now. Finn argued that he is the only one who can be called a former universal champion. In typical WWE fashion, a Fatal 4-Way match was set up as the main event to determine who would fight Brock Lesnar.

During the Fatal 4-Way match, Finn defeated the other three by pinning The Champ, Cena as he succumbed to a Coup de Grace. After the match, Cena held Finn's hand up as a mark of respect and gave the Irish, his seal of approval.
