Maybe it is his fault. Over the last few years, Braun Strowman has seemed to be the next big thing almost every single day. He has become one of the most popular wrestlers in the company but for one reason or another, WWE has refused to give him the rocket push that he seems destined to receive. Now though, it seems that his latest issues are WrestleMania related.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE is not happy with Strowman’s performance in the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania 35. Strowman is said to have missed several spots, including one that nearly saw Ali injure himself on a landing to the floor, as well as the finish to the match itself. Since WrestleMania, Strowman has only wrestled once, in a tag team match victory this week on Monday Night Raw.
See if you can spot the botches. Check out Strowman in the battle royal:
Opinion: I’m not sure if I completely buy this one. Strowman is one of the biggest stars in the company at the moment and is already scheduled to take part in the Money in the Bank ladder match. I would really hope that Strowman isn’t being punished for the battle royal, when it was the second straight year that he had to do something involving non-wrestlers instead of having a high profile match. Then again, this is WWE so there is a good chance that they cared more about the celebrities looking good than the wrestler.
