Since the past two years, Braun Strowman has enjoyed the spotlight in the WWE. Even though the Monster Among Men hasn’t gotten too many high-profile matches, he has had his fair share of bouts with elite wrestlers which has catapulted his value.
Even the Big Show and John Cena have helped put the big man over which has surely made the fans believe more in Strowman than they did when he was part of The Wyatt Family.
As an average promo cutter, Strowman’s size and strength have more than made up for his mic skills. He has managed to make a special name for himself and has gotten quite a lot of push from the company as they love to build on monsters.
However, not everything has gone Braun’s way in the WWE. The superstar has managed to win the Greatest Royal Rumble, the Raw Tag Team Titles for a few hours, and the Money in the Bank. Yet, he still hasn’t won an individual championship and has fallen flat on his face everytime the opportunity has arisen.
Giving the Money in the Bank briefcase to a man who deserved a championship shot even without the contract was sort of a slap in his face, and his failed attempt to cash it in showed that the WWE was holding him back from becoming a champion.
Another failed attempt came at Crown Jewel where he was the favorite to win the championship which was ultimately awarded to Brock Lesnar. This clearly showed that the WWE is not ready to give him that final push to become the champion.
After careful analysis of the reports at hand, we have managed to figure out 3 main reasons why the WWE is hesitant to crown Braun Strowman as a champion. Take a look at the reasons below and decide for yourself whether WWE is fair in not pushing Strowman forward.
#3 Backstage fallout
Recent reports have suggested that Braun Strowman’s attitude isn’t working well with the management of the WWE. No matter how much fans love a wrestler, it all boils down to how much the management wants to see the wrestler progress, and that seems to be the case for Strowman.
It’s surprising that Strowman has not yet won even a single real title, apart from his comic Raw Tag Team title win and the Greatest Royal Rumble belt. The reason given is that Strowman is his own worst enemy.
Whenever the WWE is on the verge of giving him the final push, Strowman does something backstage that makes the management change their mind. Recently, he’s been reported for arriving at the shows late and leaving early which hasn’t worked well with the management at all.
Even though for fans that may not seem like a big problem, since Brock Lesnar barely ever shows up to shows, but it does not fit well for a relatively newer wrestler who should be working hard to make a name for himself before getting laid back.
