Bazza, I thought Strowman did that teaser very well against Lesnar where he got in his face and made his point quickly and clearly, and then backed down. I didnt like the fact that he was forced to do this with Taker though, because they left it way too late before deciding that he was just going to be put in the joke Battle royal.

Also, does anybody remember Braun Strowman being one of Adam Rose's happy clappy cheerers originally ? That totally goes against his current image of course.

He's being portrayed as an unstoppable monster, he shouldn't be backing down from anyone if that's his role, it was a bit of a lazy booking if you ask me.

As for his Rosebud thing, yeah I bet out of character that's what he's genuinely like as he was obviously having loads of fun doing that.

Its just early days Baz for me, and maybe they arent sure whether he can get over as the star they want him to be. So I think just setting him up like this briefly.. and then having him back down is teasing and they are doing it well. Lets wait and see eh lol.

But when hes doing the 'I beat the crap out of Roman Reigns' speech and he starts smiling, that was strange. Big monsters in the ring etc arent meant to have a sense of humour are they ? lol

I love that about him. I listened to a podcast (either the Steve Austin Show, or Talk is Jericho) with him not that many months back, and Strowman showed he had TONS of personality and a great sense of humor. Also, there was some episode of Ride Along, on the WWE network (or maybe it was Total Divas???) where the girls were playing a game of who they'd marry, murder, or make out with, and every one of them picked Strowman to marry because "he's just so much fun".

He may not be the brightest guy in the world, but as long as he's fun to watch, and you can see that he's having fun, he's going to get over big. I knew after that it was just a matter of time that he got over. I think we've only seen the tip of the iceberg from Strowman's personality, and if he can shape himself into a monster that has fun with his feats of strength, and shows a crazy intensity like he has thus far he's going to be legit main event in no time.

How about a manager and a mouth piece eh Rico, to go along with Strowman's obvious future potential. Yes thats where the despicable loathsome Paul Heyman comes into it, and I really cant stand the bloke either. But I know he does his job well and maybe Strowman needs this soon.

I don't know. I think Strowman has a good enough sense of humor that if he were to just go nuts and laugh off his flubs on the mic, he'd be just fine, if not even better off than before.

Asuka is the one that really needs someone like Paul Heyman.

But that's just my opinion, WTF do I know??? lol

I dont know who Asuka or 'Asska' is (remember I said I dont know about the Nxt, but I have looked her up on the internet).
And along those lines, would Heyman be the right man to take Shins'ke Nakamura to the next level ?

Ah, Asuka is the chick in my gif sig. She's giving the black chick the armbar. She's basically a stiff as fuck Japanese strong style wrestler, and widely regarded as the best active womens wrestler in the world, and second all time behind Manami Toyota (who has more 5 star matches under her belt than Bret and Shawn put together). She's got these brutal as fuck kicks to the head she does, and some badass transitions into legit submissions. IMO she looks like a star that would have gotten along very well in ECW. Thus Paul Heyman.

Also, she speaks Japanese and while she can speak English well enough to call a match in the ring with her partner she's not good enough at it to cut convincing promos. Moreover, it seems she is on a heel turn which is going to serve her well as she got famous as a Nazi-zombie. Now, obviously WWE isn't going to allow her to go full-beast mode with Nazi regalia, but the rest of it she should be able to get away with and as a heel, with her credentials, Paul Heyman IMO is the perfect representative for her.

Moreover, she's also been undefeated for a year and a half, and is the reigning, defending, undefeated, (and unconquered) NXT women's champion. She's got the only streak in the WWE worth mentioning these days, and has amassed well over 100 wins. All of this feeds into Paul Heyman's wheel house.



The problem with Nakamura being with Heyman is that he's a mega over babyface, and more of an HBK style wrestler and performer. That doesn't play into Heyman's strong suits. Asuka is essentially hot Japanese chick Brock Lesnar.
