Quote Braun Strowman comes out to the ring, and he no longer has a sling over his shoulder. Braun calls out Brock Lesnar, and then we see Heyman and Lesnar on the big screen. Heyman says he sees Strowman looking for a face to face confrontation with Lesnar. Heyman says he knows Strowman thinks he's a monster, but Strowman needs to learn a lesson. Strowman thinks he's facing Lesnar at Royal Rumble, but the card is subject to change, and if Lesnar came down to the ring right now, Strowman wouldn't be able to compete at the Rumble. Back in the ring, Strowman gets on the mic and calls Lesnar "beastie boy" and tells him he's waiting in the ring for him. Lesnar and Heyman ask if that's all Strowman has to say, and Strowman tells Brock to stop hiding behind his advocate. Braun dares Brock to come get in his face, but Heyman chimes in and says no. Strowman says Heyman's ass must get jealous of all the crap that comes out of his mouth. Strowman says Lesnar must be afraid to come face to face with him. Strowman continues to threaten Lesnar, and says everyone knows what happens when he gets these hands. Lesnar tells Heyman he wants to see what Strowman's got. Heyman asks Brock not to go out to the ring, but Lesnar starts heading to the gorilla position anyways. Lesnar comes out to the ring with Heyman trailing behind him. Lesnar circles around the ring, but then Lesnar starts walking back up the ramp. Strowman yells at Lesnar to turn around, and says he will be crowned new Universal Champion at Royal Rumble. Lesnar and Heyman head to the back as Strowman stares them down from the ring.
Braun came across so badly. He's the babyface but nothing he said was strong enough to wind up the champion.
I aren't looking forward to their match. I am bored enough seeing these two fueding with eachother.
Braun is also clearly not 100% to keep him from physicality too, even if he didn't have to take a bump himself.

It really shows how much some wrestlers still desperate need to be scripted. His lack of ability to ad lib, or come up with anything interesting, is undoubtedly his greatest weakness.

Those scripted promos are a double edged sword.

Sure, if they're not good at improvising the scripted promos will help them out, but if they forget their lines, then having no experience improvising is going to hurt the business as a whole. Braun didn't just look bad, Lesnar & Heyman looked bad, Raw looked bad, WWE creative looked bad, and really just WWE as a whole looked bad all because Braun Strowman is in the WWE Universal Championship picture and unable to think on the fly. It's a lack of professionalism all the way across the board.

Whereas had Strowman been brought up in an environment where you sink or swim based on your improvisational abilities, and had gotten to where he was because he was good on the mic, this would never have happened in the first place, and even had he gotten some kind of script and he forgot it, he would have been able to cover it far better that what we saw.

That said, there's no need to make mountains out of molehills either, I'm sure Strowman will not make that mistake again and be better prepared next time. The guy has improved in leaps and bounds and he deserves to be in that main event spot as much as anyone... He just can't keep making a mistake like that either.
