#5 Braun Strowman was told about his WrestleMania 36 match just hours before the event

Braun Strowman won his first WWE Universal Championship reign at WrestleMania 36 after defeating Goldberg for the title. However, Strowman wasn’t a part of the initial plan for the Universal Championship match and WWE had to scramble to get him to the Performance Center as a replacement for Roman Reigns.

Sports Illustrated spoke to the former Universal Champion regarding his sudden Universal Championship match at WrestleMania 36 against Goldberg.

“I was told, ‘There’s been a change, we need you.' I said, ‘Well, I’m in Wisconsin. How am I getting there?’ Almost before I finished saying that, I was told there was a jet in the air that was landing in a few hours for me. My uncle had just put beer butt chickens on the smoker. I had just enough time to wolf down some food. That jet was a pack of gum with wings and a motor. It was a four-seater jet, and I filled up all four seats."

Not only did Braun Strowman deliver a few powerslams to the legendary Golberg, but he also managed to win his first WWE Universal Championship. This backstage story clearly shows how travelling schedules can affect WWE Superstars.
