Braun Strowman beat Roman Reigns at a dramatic WWE Payback.

The 6ft 8in giant, who had injured Reigns earlier in the week by overturning an ambulance he was in, capitalised on his injured foe dealing out yet more heavy punishment in the first pay-per-view since Wrestlemania.

A heavily bandaged Reigns fought back after being chokeslammed on to an announce table before forcing Strowman to kick out from a spear and two Superman punches.

But the damage eventually told, Reigns going down to a powerslam before Strowman continued his assault after the bell smashing him into the steel ring steps and a waiting ambulance.

Elsewhere Jeff and Matt Hardy defended their Raw Tag Team titles for the first time since their stunning return at Wrestlemania defeating Sheamus and Cesaro.

Chris Jericho won the United States champion after defeating Kevin Owens while Alexa Bliss made history beating Bayley to become the first to have held both the Raw and SmackDown Women's Championships.
