Braun Strowman is WWE’s new massive beast. Brock Lesnar won’t be around forever, while Kane and Big Show are soon to be on their way out of WWE. It’s only a matter of time before Braun Strowman is the top big man on the WWE roster.
Shockingly, the man has improved leaps and bounds over where he was as part of the Wyatt family. He not only has charisma but can also speak coherently during interviews and promos.
Most importantly, the guy hasn’t made an in-ring mistake in months. He’s getting better, and there’s only one way to go for him: up. And while normally, especially for a big bruiser like Strowman, the people you meet on the way up are the people that you always put down, that does not have to be the case.
Obviously, Braun needs to show domination to more important superstars as time goes on, but there are some men who could, and maybe even should, defeat him while he makes his ascent to the top of the food chain.
Here are 5 guys who just might be able to defeat Braun Strowman.
#5 Brock Lesnar
It seemed like WWE was leaning toward Bray Wyatt vs. Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 32, but that didn’t happen.
Back at the 2016 Royal Rumble, Strowman, Harper and Rowan eliminated Lesnar. Strowman, who probably didn’t know what he was doing at the time, also stood up like a wall as Brock tried to knock him over before the Beast Incarnate was finally able to take the New Beast off of his feet.
It may be time for some retribution, and at some point in 2017, Strowman and Lesnar could cross paths. A loss to Brock, possibly with some outside interference, would not be devastating to Strowman, especially if he spends some time throwing Lesnar around the ring with his brute force.
