Quote According to sources, Braun Strowman is reportedly a lot better than what he has shown on TV. There has been backlash to the idea of Strowman vs. The Undertaker at WrestleMania 32 ever since the rumors started.

Sources claim that Strowman has improved and it can be seen while he works out. He is said to be better than believed and he can do a lot more in the ring than he’s done on WWE TV. His skills are being saved for a bigger stage like WrestleMania.

Vince McMahon reportedly sees Strowman as one of his projects and wants to build him up as a top guy. Everything related to Strowman comes directly from McMahon, including how he’s presented, how he works, the way he picks up opponents, the way he stumbles and the way he takes bumps.

While the match with Undertaker may have been cancelled, WWE still has a long term plan for him. There has been talk of doing Strowman vs Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam if he does well at WrestleMania.

I hope it's true that Strowman's skills are being saved for a big stage because all I've seen so far is another clumsy big man with a very basic move set, similar to Great Khali.

Vince still obviously gets a boner for big guys and is completely oblivious to what the fans actually want, I'm not a smark and I enjoy more power based wrestling but I can still see when someone is just a clueless lump who has only been employed due to his look/size.

In any rate Vince is high on Strowman so this means he will be pushed to the top regardless of if the fans like it or not, I would put him in a tag-match at Fast Lane and have him look strong in a few basic spots, then give him his first major singles outing at Wrestlemania against someone like Big Show, Kane or Ryback where Strowman can unveil these skills that he's apparently kept hidden until now.

I suppose they could be doing with him what they did with Hideo Itami. He had such a limited move set, it pissed people off because they had seen so much more and they were questioning if he couldn't get wwe style or if something else was wrong, etc., then on the nxt show the night before mania, he blew the roof off the place when he went full out, including hitting the GTS.

Hard to see any of that in Strowman though.

Quote A WWE fan was escorted out of the arena after striking Braun Strowman in the face during the dark main event after last night’s WWE RAW in Philadelphia. As noted, that match saw The Wyatt Family take on Sami Zayn, Dolph Ziggler and Roman Reigns, the same match where Luke Harper suffered an apparent knee injury.

The fan was reportedly quickly pulled from his seat by WWE security and taken away.

After several fan incidents in 2015, WWE stated that they could look at pressing charges for all future incidents. We’ll keep you updated on this situation.

The fan is probably more stupid then brave as Strowman could have done alot of damage to him.

It would have been funny if the fan had been caught and he got laid out by Braun for daring to come near him.

There should be stricter punishments put in place for those idiots who want their moment of fame by storming the ring.

I hate American wrestling fans. In Japan, if a fan gets rowdy, they get punched in the face by a wrestler they smile and brag to their friends.

Chris Jericho was interviewing Dean Malenko, and during that interview Malenko talked about Davey Boy picking up a Japanese fan and carrying him out of the restaurant and throwing him into a 4 way interaction of traffic. What would be viewed as attempted murder here in the states prompted this fan to come back, bow, say thank you and give the Bulldogs the privacy they wanted.

According to sources," rel="nofollow - Braun Strowman has been sent home from WWE’s RAW-brand holiday tour. During the RAW-brand live events, Strowman was involved in a segment with Kane. The two brawled before Strowman powerslammed Kane through a table.

Strowman is reportedly ill and was sent home on Thursday.

During Friday night’s" rel="nofollow - WWE live event at the" rel="nofollow - Times Union Center in Albany, New York, Kane came out and sang with Elias. You can check out a video of that below:

He's probably got the flu as that's what you usually get this time of the year.
The schedule he's been on has been crazy, so it's not a surprise he's been run down.
Instead of going home I would have checked into Miami earlier to rest where Raw is to cut down on travel.

Hopefully he recovers and isnt off TV for any long period of time, WWE seems to have had a bit of a cursed 2017 with regards to storylines and angles being affected by illness and injury

I'm hoping he declares himself for the Rumble this week and gives us some dominant showing to support him building up his chances

I wonder if the second miracle on Bourbon Street will be Braun Strowman getting himself added as a third participant in a title match main event no one wants to see and saving the show with his victory.

When the show is going to be like 6 hours long, people will be asleep by the ME anyway so won't really matter LOL

Baz that has been an issue the past few Manias. Total burnout leading up to the ME.

Question - how do you all feel about how Braun was booked last night?

It was fine I guess, but I don't know where they go with him now. All the fans know the can and deserves to beat Brock Lesnar, so anything short of that is a let down, especially if Angle ends up working with Rousey against Triple H.

It is probably the biggest question that needs answering tonight on Raw.

For some reason WWE wants reigns to be the one to hand Lesnar a defeat. Where as I reckon Strowman would be the better choice not just because the fans are behind him but because he actually has shown he can do the dirty hard hitting shit that you expect to see for lesnar to get beaten down. When ever Reigns does it it always feel like it is too far out of his character. 

Then again I havent been able to watch Wrestling of any kind in over a month so it may have changed. 

Y'know what?....It's really fucking hot here in Africa. Who knew?....Well me, I have been doing this for almost 5 years

Quote According to a report at PWInsider, Braun Strowman is his "own worst enemy" backstage, often showing up late to events and leaving early as well. The report adds that Strowman has had trouble backstage with "etiquette" and often makes a misstep right before WWE officials are ready to commit to him as the next big star in WWE and someone to build the Raw brand around, causing the company to cool off on his push.

-- If this report is true, it could explain why WWE steered away from crowning Strowman as the Universal Champion at Crown Jewel, choosing instead to extend Brock Lesnar's tenure with the company and putting the title back on him in a match that many people viewed as a squash.

It doesn't surprise me. I know Corbin got involved but you don't build someone up for over a year, just to have them looked a jobber in minutes, unless they have pissed off the wrong people.
That he was turned heel so briefly and already back to face could have been done to derail him too.
He could be the new Bit Slow by switching between heel and face far too often.
