Here’s Why Braun Strowman Doesn’t Have a WrestleMania Opponent Yet
Everybody’s favourite wrestler, Braun Strowman, doesn’t know who he’s going to professional wrestling’s massive dance with. Apparently, plans are flipping like emergency medical service autos. However there’s a good, strategic purpose for that, based on Dave Meltzer.
It begins with the allegations we heard about again in January regarding Roman Reigns and allegations of steroid use. First Reigns was linked to a steroid dealer, who particularly linked Reigns to his in depth steroid ring that the FBI busted final yr. Later, we heard from Reigns himself, who denied these allegations.
The information cycle moved on, however rumblings proceed to pop up that a massive expose with laborious proof of Reigns’ (and others’) involvement could possibly be on the horizon.
In response to the Wrestling Observer, if this expose drops previous to WrestleMania and there’s fireplace to that smoke (or if Brock Lesnar isn’t in ok form by April, or ought to take his ball and go residence for any purpose), then WWE wants a backup plan for the large end for the most important present of the yr. Enter Braun Strowman, aka the Monster Amongst Males … aka the backup plan (Be aware: The Backup Plan isn’t a good gimmick, although Strowman might in all probability make it work).
Strowman’s lack of an opponent has much less to do with the route of his character and the whole lot to do with WWE conserving choices open. So whereas it’s odd that we’re lower than a month away from WrestleMania and no person is aware of who’s getting these palms, it makes a lot of sense by way of how the primary occasion might shake out and the way that’s sort of out of WWE’s palms. Meltzer provides that it’s attainable Strowman could possibly be added to the Intercontinental Championship match on the final minute, or they might have a particular WrestleMania section dedicated to one in every of Braun’s already-trademark feats of ridiculous power.
Worst case state of affairs, WWE can at all times play Braun’s hit YouTube show on the large display screen within the Mercedes-Benz Superdome whereas he takes down that legendary Chipotle order in the course of the ring. It gained’t land him a conventional WrestleMania second, however it’s going to simply be the most effective non-wrestling WrestleMania second of all time (apologies to Kane and Pete Rose).
