It’s good that he has these hidden depths to his personality as that offers much scope for his character to evolve, that being said I hope they don’t go the Ryback route and start making him really emotional talking about some soppy book he took inspiration from and so forth, they need to keep to the aggressive intense monster but there is room for some growth there and I do agree with Admin that sometimes Strowman comes across a bit too cartoonish as the snarling bellowing big bearded man, hopefully his face turn can rectify that.

With the way Strowman has been booked and progressed he should be the one facing Lesnar at Wrestlemania.

Oh crap, can you imagine??? That would be so bad... ... ... or would it? If he's really as funny as people say he is he might be able to pull off a parody of Ryback that would actually get him over while making Ryback look even worse. I'm not saying I want to see them go that route, but who knows? He might make a good show if it afterall.

It could work but I think I would stick with the intense monster. The Big Show went the comedic route and I think it harmed his character, was difficult to ever take him seriously after that, rather than a unstoppable monster he had more of a clumsy oversized clown kind of aura about him.

Strowman could maybe show a bit of depth to his personality by maybe having a couple of more light hearted segments backstage but I would keep him all business in the ring.

I enjoyed his stuff this week once again looking dominant. He’s on course for a win over Kane and perhaps a strong showing in the Royal Rumble.

When would his feud with Kane come to fruition? Probably not at the Royal Rumble right? Does Raw have the next PPV? I thought it was smackdown. If it IS smackdown then Kane vs Strowman at the Royal Rumble makes the most sense as far as timing is concerned, but I don't know... I suppose they could cap off the feud and then have Strowman win the Rumble or something right? Otherwise it seems like it'd be something that could go clear until WrestleMania, if it's not finished at the Royal Rumble.

Smackdown have the next PPV which is Clash of Champions, so the next opportunity will be the Royal Rumble which I believe is when they plan to have Kane and Strowman square off.

In a way it’s a shame they couldn’t save it for Wrestlemania, I’m pretty sure Kane will be retiring soon, he’s over fifty and is getting into politics, this is surely his last good run. Would have been a fitting farewell for him to put Braun over strong at Wrestlemania.
But I think they have bigger things planned for Strowman at Mania so the Rumble will have to do.

That's almost exactly what I was thinking too. I just wonder if it might drag on a bit. Kane should be used at Mania, shouldn't he? And if it's not Strowman, then who? That's the only thing that really gives me pause.

Maybe they WON'T have a match at the Royal Rumble, and instead meet each other IN the rumble and have a throwout competition? Kane needs to extend his lead as the biggest monster the Rumble has ever seen. Make Kane's legacy in the Royal Rumble seem like something akin to Undertaker's WrestleMania streak. It's already so huge, that if he had one more big year it'd be ages before someone would ever catch him. If Strowman can put on an equally impressive display at the rumble then that could extend the feud further?

Kane seems a bit of step down in some way for Strowman, but if they're intent on not giving him Lesnar's title, then maybe this really is the best he can do, if only for the moment.

That’s the problem Kane is a step down for Strowman, that said it’s still a Wrestlemania moment for him blasting Kane with a powerslam and getting the win claiming his throne as the monster of WWE.

But with Strowman on the current tear he’s on I think they have bigger plans for him, plus as mentioned it would be very hard to drag the feud out that long, as well as the Royal Rumble there is the Raw event the Elmination Chamber prior to Mania.

Maybe winning the Andre the Giant Battle Royal would be a fitting end to Kane’s career.

i'd wonder if at the Rumble, a match with Kane might have the same type of ending as the Cena Kane match did.

fucking hell, Raw doesn't have a PPV of it's own now until March!

i'm not sure you could keep having them take each other out until then, so I guess it would have to end at the Rumble, and then i'd wonder if either or both would be pulling double duties that night.

as entertaining as Strowman is, i'm not sure I could put up with Cole excitedly shouting that Strowman has returned after an attack by Kane only seven days previous. sure, hype that he's back, hype the angle, but don't make out like Strowman has been gone the best part of the year recovering, Michael.

Thats exactly what will happen

Its pretty common for people to do double duty on Rumble night and its plain to see that this cant run on that much longer

They have had Kane destroyed at the end of a few episodes and if he keeps just showing up the next week it will start to ruin Brauns momentum

The PPV set up hasnt really helped this as i think the plan ideally would have been to have this end sooner rather than later

I do find it weird that Smackdown effectively has three months of PPVs in a row.

I mean, to have a gap from October until March between your exclusive events seems weird considering there was never a gap that wide when PPVs were costing US viewers $60 a pop with sometimes as little as three weeks between each brand event.
