Braun Strowman On Inspiring Fans

Former WWE Universal Champion Braun Strowman recently revealed how he is being able to inspire fans. Braun who is been with WWE since 2014 is portrayed like a giant like man. His gimmick, attire, by every means he looks like a giant.

But this is not how he is in real life. He is a very gentle and kind man in real life. This happens to fans almost all the times. Fans often mistake wrestlers with their gimmick. In most cases, wrestlers are completely different from their actual gimmick. Braun Strowman is no different from this either.

Braun Strowman On Inspiring Fans

Braun Strowman has revealed it previously that he has been a big Bully during his childhood. This is why Braun always fight against the bully.  Similar to Titus, who was also a Bully during his childhood, who is now fighting his best against the bully.

With the cases of bullying increasing in America day by day it is difficult to get rid of Bully completely. In this difficult time, people like Braun Strowman and Titus O’Neil can of course make a difference. In fact, they are making a difference.

During his interview with TMZ Sports, Braun revealed how he is inspiring fans and how much it means to him;

“Plus, with seeing how much I’ve changed in the last year or so, what it’s done for other people. The messages I get from fans, friends, family, strangers from all around the world that send me messages, ‘Hey, I’ve seen your fitness goal. It’s made me change the way I eat, made me get back in the gym, I’ve lost 100 pounds, I’ve lost 200 pounds.’ All this stuff. I have moms, dads message me, ‘I’ve changed the way I cook for my family, for my kids. We eat at home more.

“We eat more homecooked meals versus eating out,’ and it’s really cool to see that trickle effect goes down when in the grand scheme of things, I never in a million years thought I’d mean this much to people around the world. I’m a simple country boy from a tiny little town in North Carolina that tripped and fell into the coolest job in the world.”

“Braun Strowman on how it’s humbling for him: “It’s humbling, it’s really humbling. To see the transformation pictures that people send me it’s just, wow. Then to hear the stories of how not only are they physically healthier, but they’re mentally healthier.

Braun Strowman

“That’s been the biggest thing I’ve noticed because I used to struggle and I still struggle with body dysmorphia. I struggled with bullying growing up because I was a chubby little kid and then I grew to this gigantic mongoloid of a human being that I am and I’m still judged for it because people look at me and they go, ‘oh, this big meathead.’ Which, I don’t mind meathead, I take that as a compliment because I work really hard to make this look like this. But at the same time, don’t judge a book by its cover.

“I’m very articulate. I feel like I’m kind of intelligent and you know, I like to read, I like to learn, I like to explore and it’s more than just fee-fi-fo-fum I’m going to grind your bones to make my bread. It’s really neat to break stereotypes, push through these walls that have been put up for these toxic masculinity men and really show the world how compassionate and how loving that we really are. But just don’t piss us off because if you make us angry, you probably won’t like it.”

WWE Raw Preview (17/05/21): Wrestlemania Backlash Fallouts

Nothing has officially been announced for the upcoming episode of WWE Raw while we do know that the fallouts of Wrestlemania Backlash will be there. Also, four weeks from now, Hell in a Cell 2021 edition will make its comeback to the PPV programming around which the buildups may begin when this week’s red brand show airs from the Yuengling Center in Tampa, Florida.

Bobby Lashley survived the toughest title defense of his reign as he retained the WWE Championship against Braun Strowman and Drew McIntyre in a mammoth Triple Threat Match at WrestleMania Backlash. This win may have put Strowman and McIntyre back in the line when it comes to the next title match opportunities.

In the meantime, the champion may go on vacation following WWE Raw. Following the title win at Backlash, MVP said in a backstage interview that he has “some surprises” planned for the All-Mighty champion that should be revealed, tonight. MVP also hinted that Lashley could be going on a vacation to celebrate his victory.

“The champ has proven time and time again that he is The Almighty WWE Champion,” MVP said. “There’s not a man in the history who works harder than he does. If you go to his Instagram, and see the workouts that he posts, mortal men will drop and die. Again and again, he has defended that title and shown the world that he’s the Almighty.

“Now it is time for the champion to enjoy the fruits of his labor, right?”

Charlotte Flair to receive a rematch on WWE Raw?

Rhea Ripley passed her first major test as the WWE Raw Women’s Champion in a PPV event. With authority, she pinned Asuka for the second time in just six days to retain her title in a Triple Threat also featuring Wrestlemania Backlash. But it should be noted that Flair was never pinned or submitted during the match which should still keep her in the title picture.

The Queen has built a recent alliance with WWE Official Sonya Deville which earned her the title match opportunity at Wrestlemania Backlash, in the first place. Now she can simply visit Deville pointing out the fact that Ripley has never defeated her to retain that title which could pave the way for a future title opportunity, perhaps at WWE Hell in a Cell 2021.

Speaking of this, Ricochet might earn a title shot to United States Champion despite the loss suffered at Wrestlemania Backlash. Sheamus kneed him to the face to secure a non-title win but after the match, the high-flying superstars shoved him off the ring, leaving him in a humiliating state. The Celtic Warrior is definitely coming for redemption when WWE Raw airs with the latest episode from ThunderDome.

Triple threat match is more unpredictable because that WWE champion Bobby Lashley retained the Championship at WrestleMania 37 against the Scottish Psychopath Drew McIntyre. Every time a WWE world champion retains their title at WrestleMania there remains a high chance of hin dropping the title at the very next pay per view event.

Braun Strowman who has not been pushed on to the main events ever since he drop the universal Championship to Bray Wyatt, so this might be his chance of grabbing the world title once again.

Braun recently spoke to TMZ Sports to hype up WrestleMania Backlash. He said he was pretty confident of winning the WWE Championship;

With it being a Triple Threat, there’s no rules — you’ve seen in the past, the ‘Monster Among Men’ will pick up anything he can get his hands on and use as a weapon. This match is catered and built to me, to the way I like to fight. There’s no rules, there’s no regulations, there’s no nothing. There’s no running, there’s no hiding, you’re gonna get these hands.

He also said that the outcome of this match will determine who is the face of WWE Raw;

It’s three larger-than-life men about to go to war. I mean, there’s nowhere else on Earth you’re gonna see three guys like this square up and beat the ever living hell out of each other. This is King Kong meets Godzilla meets The Incredible Hulk for the battle of the alpha of Monday Night Raw. Who’s going to be at the top of the food chain? Who’s going to be the guy that represents Monday Night Raw, and I damn sure ain’t planning on coming out of the backside of WrestleMania Backlash not carrying that WWE Championship.

Braun Strowman Originally Planned To Win Title At WWE Crown Jewel 2018

Braun Strowman had to wait almost five years from his debut to pick up a world title in the WWE, Universal Title belt to be specific. But going by a recent report, he was originally scheduled to get that big win, at least a couple of years ago. He was originally set to defeat Brock Lesnar for the vacant WWE Universal Title at the Crown Jewel 2018 event in Saudi Arabia.

Crown Jewel 2018 started a new chronology in the WWE pay-per-view calendar which saw Brock Lesnar defeated Braun Strowman to win the vacant Universal Title for the second time in his career. The match lasted under 4 minutes as The Beast Incarnate executed a flurry of F5s to pick up an easy win instead.

The then-RAW General Manager King Baron Corbin attacked Braun Strowman before the match which appeared to be a big help for Lesnar. The title had been declared vacant as the previous champion Roman Reigns had to go into a hiatus due to his battle with leukemia. The situation could have folded in an entirely different manner.

WWE Extreme Rules 2021 Reportedly Scheduled In July

Braun Strowman could have defeated Brock Lesnar

Former WWE writer Kazeem Famuyide recently discussed the sudden change in plans for Crown Jewel 2018 on his “Say Less with Kaz, Lowkey and Rosy” Podcast. It was revealed that Braun Strowman was originally scheduled to defeat Lesnar for the vacant title as WWE creative also wrote an entire RAW as the Monster Among Men being the new champion. But then Lesnar ended up winning that match and consequence-wise, the next RAW had to be re-written.

This is what Kazeem had to say about Braun Strowman and Crown Jewel 2018 pay-per-view event,

“There was one time where we all thought a match was going — this was — man, f**k it, I’m not working there anymore.

It was in Saudi [Crown Jewel 2018] and Braun [Strowman] was supposed to beat Brock [Lesnar]. This is right after Roman [Reigns] announced he had cancer, right?

So, Brock and Braun were supposed to fight for the World Title and we had a whole Monday Night RAW written with Braun Strowman as Champion and then sike, Brock Lesnar wins and then as soon as Brock wins, we all had to go back into the office, rewrite the whole show.

I just thought it was some sh*t where it’s just like oh, they’re just kind of keeping us on the D.L. [down low], whatever but I didn’t know they could change like [that].” (Quotes courtesy POST Wrestling)

As mentioned above, Braun Strowman didn’t win the Universal Title on that night but he eventually ended up winning the Title a year & a half later at WrestleMania 36 in 2020. He defeated WWE Hall of Famer Bill Goldberg to earn that accolade. After picking up a big win on WrestleMania 37 against Shane McMahon, Braun is back in the title picture on Raw.

Batista Offered A WWE Championship Match By Bobby Lashley

WWE Champion Bobby Lashley had a reunion with his former buddy and another legendary WWE Superstar Batista. The two have reportedly run into each other at what looks like in the Meat Market Steakhouse in Tampa, Florida. Later, The Dominator shared the meet with a social media post containing a number of photos.

The All-Mighty Champion posted those photos with Batista while also noting a potential in-ring fight between the two. He openly granted a title shot to Batista if the latter would consider an in-ring return,

“So good seeing my good friend @davebautista. And Yes I will give you a title shot if you ever return! [smile emoji] [fist emoji]. Nevertheless Congrats on all your successes brotha,” Lashley wrote.

Till now, no response has been received from Batista to Lashley’s comments. He’s not probably interested in making a return to the squared circle considering how busy he is these days with his Hollywood career. The WrestleMania 35 showdown with Triple H admittedly wrapped up his career, for good. The Animal has shown no intention of coming back after such a grand farewell.

Batista and Bobby Lashley had only one singles contest in WWE

Bobby Lashley and Batista teamed up and worked several multi-person matches back in 2006 on the SmackDown brand. While Lashley was an emerging talent, the latter already established himself as a top-tier talent in the company. Their only singles match on WWE TV happened on October 6, 2006, SmackDown show. The referee ruled that match a No Contest due to outside interferences. Basically, the two giant figures never had a proper feud.

WWE Hall Of Fame 2021 ceremony aired on April 6th where inductees from Class Of 2020 and Class Of 2021 received the honor of entering the prestigious club. (The ceremony was canceled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic). In late 2019, Batista was announced to be the headliner for the WWE Hall Of Fame Class Of 2020, but later WWE pulled his name from the official website.

Upon visiting the preview page of the Hall of Fame ceremony fans could spot the following message,

“You are not authorized to access this page.”

According to Fightful Select, WWE Officials wanted Batista to have his Hall Of Fame induction with live fans in attendance. This is the reason that they have pushed back his Hall of Fame induction, for now.

WWE Raw Preview (03/05/21): Bobby Lashley In Action; Two Title Matches

Builds of WrestleMania Backlash PPV will be the main focus on WWE Raw as two major segments have been confirmed. The WWE Champion will be in attendance at the show to address the change in his next title defense. Also, a new alliance may just continue to announce the Raw Women’s Title Match for the PPV as Monday’s flagship show takes place at the Yuengling Center in Tampa, Florida.

Braun Strowman has lately been a roll, on WWE Raw and the momentums eventually earned him a title shot at WrestleMania Backlash. After having an altercation with Drew McIntyre, the Monster Among Men received a main event match with the stipulation that a win could lead him to the title picture.

Attempted interference from Bobby Lashley, MVP, MACE, and T-BAR allowed Braun Strowman to capitalize with a Running Powerslam on McIntyre to secure the high-stakes win and confirm a Triple Threat at WrestleMania Backlash for the WWE Championship.

Obviously, the WWE Champion Bobby Lashley isn’t happy with this sudden change of plan since in a Triple Threat, you don’t have to be pinned or submitted to drop the title. Now, The All-Mighty Champion has been announced for WWE Raw as he will address the change to his title defense at the PPV slated for May 16. Plus, he intends to take either Strowman or Lashley in a singles contest.

There’s been teasing the alliance of Charlotte Flair and SmackDown official Sonya Deville might just continue. First, the latter helped The Queen to be back on the red brand and now she could obviously help her out to get involved in the next RAW Women’s Championship defense by Rhea Ripley.

This past WWE RAW episode witnessed Deville making a surprise appearance on the show to bring Charlotte Flair back from her storyline suspension for attacking a referee. WWE Official Adam Pearce wasn’t aware of this reinstate matter. Flair then went on to defeat Mandy Rose in a singles contest making a statement that she is coming after the title. That being said, Flair vs. Ripley or a Triple Threat with the lineup of Flair vs. Asuka vs. Ripley could be made official for WrestleMania Backlash.

The champions made an appearance on WWE The Bump on YouTube, this past Wednesday to reveal that they have been partying in Nigeria to point out the kayfabe reason for this hiatus.
