  • Braun Strowman

    A while ago in the old thread the idea was raised that the risk of turning Braun was they would ruin him as a character.

    WWE fans, how is he working out for you?

    If they gave him something to do it would be great.

        I like when we're on the same page. It happens so rarely after Bockwinkel retires.

            I'm dying because this is so accurate as the watershed moment.

              Yeah, just give him the title and run with it.

              He's now being positioned as someone who is completely floating - tagging with Lashley isn't going to help him at all - and he really needs to get that title, or just a title, before he starts to cool down.

                Not on board with wanting to see him as champion yet. I don't think he needs the belt, nor do I think it would do as much for him as others who could hold it.

                Would a guy who holds all the advantages he has really work as a babyface when he's feuding with babyfaces who are much smaller than him for very long like Rollins, Balor, Ambrose, etc. He's already made the other full time heels his bitch in the likes of Owens, Zayn, Ellias. Jinder? No thanks.

                I'd like to see his character given more wrinkles, perhaps give him a serious challenge to overcome like mid 90's Undertaker got from Mankind and Kane before putting the strap on him. Maybe they should have him one level below the main event beating the likes of Triple H and John Cena- but do those feuds really need the title. Rollins I believe right now would do far more with it, it for the TV product, and the belt more for Rollins

                  Strowman's singles match against KO on Monday was good, b/c KO carried him to a good match. KO made Strowman look great.

                  BUT Strowman needs a singles feud to carry him to SummerSlam. Lashley would work or even Rollins. Hell even Bray Wyatt would work. Shame that they wouldn't bring Cesaro back to RAW, he would be perfect to feud with Strowman. Cesaro has the height and the well documented strength to match up with Strowman. Even a Sheamus singles match would be cool.

                    I like a lot of stuff in the mid-90s, I'm sure we can get on the main page every so often up until maybe 1998.

                      Sounds like Big Show shit all over the idea of Braun as champ. Might be a bad sign for his beating Brock if others in power feel the same way.

                        I wouldn't consider that to be shitting on him. What he said was true, and we've all known for a while that Braun is pretty green and limited. There's a reason why they haven't pulled the trigger on him thus far, despite his super overness, because they're also cognizant of his limitations. And they *are* in my view overdoing the comedy with him.

                          I'd say it has less to do with his greenness and more to do with how his status as a giant could limit things for him as he can't have the kind of varied matches a smaller guy (even just by a bit) can, Show compared a giant to John Cena who could have a competitive match against bigger and smaller guys with ease. With a big guy you have to be a lot more creative to have that kind of versatility. There is a very fine line between being so dominant it is boring and beatable enough without losing the giant aura.

                          I feel like the WWE can pull it off with the right wrestlers, they just need to be the top of their game creatively, after all it was arguably the Sami Zayn feud that really put Braun on a trajectory towards the top in the first place.

                            But if Braun was less green and a competent/great wrestler, then it wouldn't matter. Kind of like Lesnar, who isn't a giant by any means, but he did have an aura of invincibility, and he was still able to work with everyone from Eddie to skinny guys like Punk to big guys like Taker, because Brock is a terrific, versatile, freakishly athletic wrestler who can do lots of things. Braun really isn't that. Not yet, anyways.

                              I didn't say that they shit on him, I said they shit on the idea of him as champ. Subtle difference but it's key.

                              Sounds like he said he might get the belt but will never be the guy long term. The comments I saw said that's not a talent thing, more of a size thing.
