Earlier tonight on Raw, Braun Strowman was stripped of his Universal Championship match against Brock Lesnar at the Royal Rumble as a result of destroying Vince McMahon’s limousine.
Later in the night, it was revealed four men would compete in a fatal four way match to determine the new #1 contender to The Beast’s title: Finn Balor, Drew McIntyre, John Cena and Braun Strowman. In what turned out to be a solid Raw main event, Finn Balor picked up the victory, pinning John Cena after a coup de grace.

After the match, John Cena took to the microphone to announce his endorsement for the leader of Balor Club.
"For what it's worth, you got one more person that believes in you."
