Braun Strowman proved once again on Monday Night Raw this week why he is the most entertaining part of WWE now. From one of Adam Rose’s ‘Rosebuds’, to what seemed like another boring Vince McMahon pet project back in 2015 when he debuted on the main roster, Strowman has seriously come into his own over the past year, quickly becoming a huge fan favourite.
When Strowman attacked Roman Reigns by flipping an ambulance during the summer of 2017, it was unclear what creative’s true motive was behind the move. In what may have been an attempt to make Roman look strong and turn Braun into a massive heel, fans immediately sided with the ‘Monster Among Men’ and have not looked back since. And neither has Strowman!
He was by far my pick for superstar and MVP of the year in 2017, and although he was unable to capture any sort of championship gold, he was a part of nearly every memorable moment of last year. From being murdered twice to destroying several rings, Braun Strowman continues to wow the WWE Universe with fun, entertaining spots.
I know that during the time I have been a fan of the WWE, I have never seen someone pull down an entire scaffold onto two people with a grappling hook! I had never seen an ambulance been flipped over, and I had never seen someone been crushed alive by both an ambulance and a garbage truck. Strowman has done all this and more in the short time he has been on our television screens and I am excited for what’s still to come.
Strowman’s recent feuds with Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns have shown that he can run with the top dogs… and the big dog. Although he lost clean back at No Mercy 2017 after being hit with only one F-5, I believe that a Universal Championship is in the near future for the Monster Among Men, maybe even closer than we all think. I used to believe the upcoming triple threat match at the Royal Rumble event was an exact science. That Kane was going to eat an F-5 and set up Lesnar vs. Reigns at Wrestlemania AGAIN! But after this week’s Raw, I’m starting to think other outcomes may be a reality.
Regardless of whether he wins at the Rumble or not, Braun Strowman will continue to entertain all of us each and every week. He has brought something fresh to the table that WWE so desperately needs. He certainly is my favourite superstar currently, and I can’t wait to see what sort of spots are in store for Strowman in 2018.
