Brock Lesnar vs Braun Strowman Is Up Next
They’ve already teased this match numerous times with the most recent encounter being the night after Wrestlemania on RAW. Braun Strowman is penciled in to challenge the Beast Incarnate at one the next pay per views in Brock Lesnar’s first Universal title defense. Dave Meltzer of the wrestling observer newsletter reported that the current plan is to have the two monsters collide at one of the upcoming events. For that to make sense, Braun must beat Reigns this Sunday. This Sunday is Braun’s best chest with an injured Roman. Going back to reason number 1, the reason why they gave Reigns a kayfabe injury going into his match with Strowman is to not risk Roman looking weak in giving him a loss to Strowman and to propel Braun to a title match. Because regardless of whether or not Strowman’s win is over an injured Reigns or not, it’s still a huge win for the big man as he’ll have just beaten 1 of the 2 men that have beaten the Undertaker at Wrestlemania. And that justifies a title match.
Speaking of title matches and Roman, that brings me to reason number 3.
