Braun Strowman was decimated by Brock Lesnar at Crown Jewel when he was handed five F5’s before he was finally defeated, but for some reason, The Monster Among Men wants to step back in the ring with The Beast.
Technically, Strowman has no claim to the Championship since he lost the match and would now go to the back of the queue whilst WWE found a new challenger for Lesnar, but Strowman is a unique threat and last night on Raw be was given the chance to guarantee himself a shot at the Universal Champion.
Stephanie McMahon informed Strowman that if he was able to keep his cool around Baron Corbin until after Survivor Series then he could have a match Corbin and against Lesnar and he would also be allowed to pick the stipulations. Of course, this isn’t official yet, since the two men still have to co-exist throughout the show on Sunday night.
Given the timeframe that WWE has to work with between now and WrestleMania and the fact that Lesnar is on a limited appearance basis, Dave Meltzer recently noted on The Wrestling Observer that it’s unlikely that this match will be taking place at WrestleMania.
“I mean the one thing is that I have been told, and of course this is always subject to change. But I was told directly that Braun Strowman vs Brock Lesnar was not going to happen at WrestleMania,” he said via Ringsidenews.
“So that could mean that Strowman wins the championship before WrestleMania. Could mean a lot of different things. But that leads me to believe that since they directly brought up Braun Strowman challenging that means it’s not something they’re doing six months down the line it seems like something they’re doing for the next big one.”
“Right now Lesnar’s not booked in San Jose for the December pay-per-view. The one after that is the January pay-per-view which is the Royal Rumble so that’s what it feels like to me. From there, who knows?”
Lesnar’s presence at The Royal Rumble still remains up in the air, but this could be the place that the two men clash and could then lead to a much bigger match for Lesnar at WrestleMania.
