Braun Strowman has wreaked havoc for nearly 4 years on WWE’s main roster but hasn’t managed to win his first singles title yet.
Strowman’s rollercoaster push has seen him perform both as a babyface and a heel. Despite being inches away from capturing the Universal Championship several times, The Monster always failed in his pursuits and turned himself into a choker. The WWE Universe once used to think highly of him but not anymore.
Paul Heyman is the new Executive Director of Monday Night RAW and has brought a fresh touch to the product in just two weeks. With The Advocate now in control, things are about to change for Strowman.
Tom Colohue reports that a source in WWE has informed him about the plan behind Braun Strowman and Bobby Lashley‘s destructive angle last week on RAW – the idea is to have the 35-year-old Superstar return to his previous “Monster Among Men” gimmick.
“The idea is to get Strowman back to his roots as a monster, just destroying everything in his path. He hasn’t been used as effectively as he could be.”
Heyman is the mastermind behind ECW and its success; the raw pro wrestling that once drove fans crazy is seemingly making its way way back to WWE’s programming and last week’s stage explosion angle is definite proof of that.
However, only select Superstars can make Heyman’s robust ideas work and it so happens that Strowman fulfills most of the criteria that The Advocate has in mind.
“Heyman’s still the same guy who brought you ECW. He likes the technical style but he also likes big, destructive forces of nature. Braun is perfect for that.”
A big destructive Superstar like Braun can do wonders and Heyman already has the big guy on his watch.
The Monster’s days of grinding in irrelevant feuds are over and with Heyman’s backing, the behemoth is apparently underway to winning his first major singles title on the main roster.
