Braun Strowman got that punishment. 

Vince McMahon announced on Raw that Braun Strowman is out of his WWE Universal Title bout against Brock Lesnar at the Royal Rumble. McMahon made the announcement after Strowman destroyed his limo, which Baron Corbin was hiding in. Strowman was also fined $100,000 for his action. Following McMahon pulling him from the Universal Title bout, Strowman proceeded to flip over the limo.
