WWE News: Reason Behind Roman Reigns-Braun Strowman Match At Wrestlemania 33
As per the (earlier) rumors, the WWE is preparing Braun Strowman as Roman Reigns’ Wrestlemania opponent. The WWE is heavily pitching the idea to push the mountain of a man as one of the most dominant heels at this time. However, they are already getting some negative feedbacks from the fans.
From their perspective, Strowman has not done anything incredible since he’s been on the roster. So, what’s the point of giving him the opportunity to compete in a big match at Wrestlemania and especially considering that Reigns is the top babyface of the franchise?
Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez discussed the idea in a recent episode of Wrestling Observer Radio. They pointed out a similar feud that happened in 2015 between Reigns and Big Show. At that time, Show was a heel under the wings of the Authority and the WWE wanted to use him to establish Reigns for the main event spot.
However, the feud turned out to be a big bore for the fans as both of them ended up getting booed at an extreme level. Apparently, the WWE is still trying to repeat the storyline, again with Strowman. Once again, Vince McMahon is the one behind this idea.
“It’s Roman Reigns vs. the big giant. Why do you think they did Roman Reigns vs. Big Show all those times? That’s how you get a babyface over, he’s gotta beat a big giant. It’s Vince McMahon 101. It didn’t work the first time [with Big Show], and he did it 55 more times. It doesn’t matter if it doesn’t work, [Vince] just thinks it works.”
The chairman still thinks Roman Reigns is a ‘big draw’ for the company. With fans and legends like Stone cold & Jim Ross urging to turn Reigns into a heel for the betterment of his career, Vince is still backing Reigns as the top babyface. Hence, we are almost guaranteed of getting Reigns vs. Strowman match at Wrestlemania 33.
