Quote The original plans for Sheamus, Cesaro and Braun Strowman at WrestleMania 34 was for them to work some sort of angle or non-wrestling segment since WWE did not want to commit to putting Strowman in a match, given some uncertainty surrounding the main event. This is why none of them had matches lined up.

-- Over the weekend, it was decided that the Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar match was in no danger of being disrupted, which then prompted some creative changes where Strowman, Cesaro & Sheamus were booked into an actual match instead.

-- As for whether it will be a handicap match or if Strowman will get a tag team partner, according to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, WWE has apparently not decided yet and if they have, only Vince McMahon likely knows and he isn't telling very many people right now.

The match on Raw made the whole tag team division look weak, when eight guys couldn't get out one man.
 
I hope Elias doesn't partner him as it's too obvious to go down that route and I don't want him being a one man team.
 
I'd quite like him to say he doesn't need a partner, Kurt says you do to be in the match, Braun says fine Kurt the next person who walks in here is my partner and then someone random like Tozawa walks in.

I love the idea of Braun Strowman as solo tag champ, but burying an entire division to put one guy over really is a bit much.

Doesnt really matter who wins this match because when The Uso's arrive to Raw theyll put the division on lock

I'd like to see Elias and Braun tag together, would be a good opportunity to give them some gold for a bit and they both seem pretty comfortable with the comedy side of things.

Quote WWE provided a storyline update on Braun Strowman, specifically his tag team title match against the Bar next month at WrestleMania 34. Strowman won the tag team battle royal single-handedly and is now the #1 contender for the titles, but has no partner. According to WWE Raw GM Kurt Angle, Strowman will get the opportunity to contest for the titles but must pick his partner, likely tonight on Raw.

-- There's really no backstage word on who this could be, but names such as Elias, Samoa Joe and Bray Wyatt have been suggested by some.

Samoa Joe needs to be on the Wrestlemania card, and with him backstage at Raw this would be perfect.
 
Braun can say he picked him because he's a monster who likes hurting people and he can relate to that.
 
They would be hugely over as a badass team, and it would likely lead to The Bar jobbing at Wrestlemania again.

That may be the case of the Bar jobbing out but its for good reason, Sheamus's neck can only hold out for so long I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up retiring after mania with how his neck is getting. 


As for Braun there are only 2 names that stand out for me that he could pick, Elias and Kane 


If its Elias though there tag team name should be called Walk with these hands.

I'm getting very bored of Braun Strowman getting over at the expense of everybody else in the whole damned company. After his showing at Elimination Chamber there isn't a wrestler alive, now or historically, who can believably beat him.

It was a shame that despite Braun saying he's picked a partner, we didn't find out who it was.

They could have had The Bar beat him down and us find out by seeing who made the save.

With guys like Samoa Joe and Big Cass backstage, I would expect a big return person to be used for him.

It’s a shame for guys like Samoa Joe who would have been a good choice as Braun’s tag partner but I really think the plan is to have Strowman go it alone against the Bar.

WWE couldn’t factor Braun in to any of the main Wrestlemania matches so they obviously decided the next best thing to keep him relevant and looking strong was to book him to single handedly best the tag champs.

In a way it’s not the worst idea ever. Sheamus is on the verge of retirement due to his spinal issues and this could be his last major event maybe even his final match, Strowman winning would allow Sheamus to bow out and Cesaro to go on to work as a singles wrestler.

A smart angle would be to have Braun win but then have the Authors of Pain debut on the post Wrestlemania Raw and take him out.

In the past though the same could have been said for Big Show, Khali, Kane and Undertaker.

Reading another thread reminded me that they use to be able to summon lightning, rise from the dead etc etc

Strowman will become boring and stale though if they dont switch it up somehow soon

Quote Braun Strowman comes down to the ring next. The Bar comes out next, and they start cutting a promo on Strowman. They demand to know who Strowman's tag team partner for WrestleMania is. Strowman says if they want to know, Sheamus has to come fight him in the ring right now. Sheamus and Cesaro complain that doesn't make sense, but Strowman isn't open to negotiating. Strowman says they might get an answer, but they'll definitely get these hands.

- Sheamus vs. Braun Strowman: Cesaro distracts Strowman early on, which leads to Sheamus getting a shot on Braun. Sheamus knocks Braun ouside, but Braun comes back on the apron and hits a strike on Sheamus so hard that Sheamus falls out to the floor. Strowman now continues to beat on Sheamus all over the ring and ringside area. Sheamus gets Strowman caught up in the ing ropes and starts picking him apart. He puts Strowman in an arm lock and starts throwing knees to the body. Strowman fights up and hits some clotheslines on Sheamus. Sheamus rolls outside and Braun follows with a big running shoulder tackle. Back in the ring, Braun misses a spear in the corner and hits the ring post. sheamus follows up with a flying clothesline off the top for a one count. Braun fights his way up, then knocks Cesaro off the apron. Sheamus misses a big boot, and Braun finishes things up with the running powerslam for the three count.

Winner: Braun Strowman

I'm disapointed there hasn't been any build up before the big show between Braun and whoever his partner is going to be.
 
I hope he doesn't go alone making a mockery of the titles and still want it to be Samoa Joe.
 
But as big of a shock as it would be to many, I wouldn't be surprised to see if it was Goldberg. He's never been tag champion (E have a fettish for first time belt holders lately) and E tend to like their most recently HOF headliner to be involved in the product more regularly (Sting, Angle etc).
