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.

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.

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.

Oh... I guess I forgot Strowman was around for Wyatt vs Taker. All I really remember of that feud is the Scarecrow entrance Wyatt had at WrestleMania.

The Wyatt family vs Brothers of Destruction feud was not long after Strowman's debut and The Undertaker was in and out of the locker room constantly in the build up to that year's Wrestlemania. Even though Roman was the de facto locker room leader at that point it wasn't until last year's Wrestlemania that he stopped backing out of the role when Undertaker was in town.

More than anything I think Strowman could benefit from guidance; that's all. Somebody has to put their arm around him and let him know what he's doing right or what he's doing wrong. The three big leaders he's used to seeing: The Undertaker; Roman Reigns and Bray Wyatt, aren't there.

Out of all of that you know what make me balk? Mentioning that at the end Roman might be back. Each time you fight cancer it is harder than the last. I don't think we will see Roman again, maybe ever, but certainly not in less than a years time.

That aside, I woyld think now more than ever that a return of the Wyatt family with Strowman in the fold makes sense. And damnit if Wyatt himself doesn't deserve more of a high profile station on the roster.

I'd love to see a Bray return as a rival for Lesnar. Having Strowman by his side could only help that. Have Bray return. A couple of weeks later have Bray come down to a Strowman match and 'brainwash' Strowman again. The two go on a rampage, resulting in a challenge from Bray to Lesnar. 

Bray beats Lesnar thanks to Strowman, takes the title and on the same night, Strowman turns on Bray. He cuts a promo the next week saying that he'd challenged Lesnar three times and lost too easily every time so he intentionally brought Bray back because he knew between the two of them they could take that title away and, having manipulated Bray, he could easily take the title away from his former leader.

Lesnar's rematch becomes a triple threat which plays out as follows. Strowman beats the hell out of Lesnar, putting him through a table and laying him out. He assaults Bray but can't put him down. Lesnar returns, utterly destroys Strowman, leaving a hurt Lesnar one on one with Wyatt. Wyatt retains the title.

At the next PPV Bray and Strowman go one on one. Wyatt, who has taught and trained Strowman, outsmarts him, potentially with the assistance of good ol' Luke Harper, and defeats him.

You could then have Strowman and Harper come back to the fold, creating a true monster at the top of the card that is potentially unstoppable.

Would be a good lead in to a return for Roman or a Ziggler and McIntyre feud.

Wishful thinking, but I see that as a better option that Strowman vs Lesnar.

People forget Braun Strowman has only been in the business about three years, I can completely understand WWE not having confidence in him working long competitive matches unless he’s got someone who can carry the whole thing bell to bell.
With Bray Wyatt at a loose end why not put the two back together as a revamped Wyatt Family heel pairing so Strowman can learn from someone who is a polished ring worker and a great character.
