Quote Braun Strowman's mystery partner at WrestleMania 34 last night is reportedly WWE official John Cone's son. Strowman picked the "fan" from the audience and then proceeded to team up with him in the match, ultimately winning both the bout and the Raw tag team titles.
 
I'm hoping in a decade this thread gets bumped with news of him in developmental LOL
 
The kid did amazing. He sold being scared waiting for the tag and that moment will live with him forever, so I aren't going to bash the booking.
 
They mention it being the son of the ref, but it looks like lad in the picture going about of Vince, Linda, Shane, Marissa, Hs and Steph in the White House with their kids, so I dunno.

What an absolute legend he is

Someone is gna get these hands

I think the whole angle was ridiculous in all honesty and wasted what could have been a great title match at Raw between The Bar and another team.

I suppose it did the job of taking the titles from The Bar so they can move to Smackdown and freed up the titles for whoever WWE decide to give them to next

The kid sold like a pro I'll give him that, he genuinely looked terrified but that's probably because he was, chances are he wasn't acting which worked because it looked so authentic.

I didn't like the angle though, wasted opportunity for a full-time talent to be Strowman's partner and produce a better match, needless burial of the Bar and all so Braun could just vacate the belts anyway. The booking stunk of protecting Strowman's momentum and making the Bar seem expendable in the process.

I reported this two days ago. 


I can see the point of those who said that Strowman destroying the Bar singlehandedly made them look weak; but then again Strowman has destroyed everyone. 

Except Brock.

Quote As noted, WWE Hall Of Famer "Stone Cold" Steve Austin gave his review of WrestleMania 34 during a recent episode of his Steve Austin Show podcast.

During the show, which featured former WWE writer Court Bauer, "The Texas Rattlesnake" spoke about his issues with WWE putting the RAW World Tag-Team Championships on Braun Strowman and a young fan named Nicholas at their biggest show of the year earlier this month in New Orleans, Louisiana.

"Braun Strowman is over like rover, a lot of potential, a lot of momentum, a lot of great storylines for him, but the fact that he goes out there in the crowd and picks some kid, it's almost like a disservice to Cesaro and Sheamus who've been working their asses off," said Austin. "Two physical specimens, have really gotten some chemistry together as a team. Not to be taken lightly. Braun's a big guy, but you know, Cesaro's one of the strongest guys in the locker room. Sheamus is a brute."

Austin would go on to elaborate, explaining how it didn't make business sense for WWE to do such a move, nor did it do anything positive for Sheamus and Cesaro, who joined forces as a tag-team and spent a considerable amount of time getting themselves over only to be perceived as weak on the "Grandest Stage of Them All."

"They can't monetize this person who was picked from the crowd," said Austin. "I don't know, I wasn't really down with it, and that's with respect to a damn good tag team like The Bar. Then Strowman picks someone [from the crowd], I just, man you're walking a fine line with him because you have this brute-force killer who's legitimately one of the biggest, strongest men in the world."

Austin concluded, "It didn't do much for me."

The woman beater should shut up because the moment was original and unique.
 
The only down side was he gave up the title the night after, as it would have been fun seeing him have to defend it a few times first.
 
It would have made for good skits where they could have filmed in at school with his title on his desk during morning registration.

It was a feel good moment for the kid who was apparently getting bullied at school he won't now that kids think Braun strownman is his friend so at least until he's 14 he most likely won't ever be bullied again.
