Who will help Braun get these hands on gold at Wrestlemania 34?
Will Elias finally help Strowman get these hands on some gold at Wrestlemania?

Braun Strowman's victory in the tag-team battle royal this past Monday night on Raw came as a surprise to large portions of the WWE Universe.

The Monster Among Men is one of the most over Superstars on the WWE roster right now, and many fans expected him to take a prominent position on the card in New Orleans, with more optimistic members of the WWE Universe hoping and praying that he would be added to and ultimately win the Universal Title match between Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns.

Strowman's solo victory in the match means that he is still in need of a partner on April 8th, and right now, there appears to be no better choice for that than Elias. The two have had a mini-feud over the last month, and their strange bedfellow's act could prove to be a masterstroke from WWE creative.

Many Superstars have found success in the tag team division before moving on to bigger things and this could turn out to be just what Braun and Elias need to give them that final push.

Let's take a look at three reasons why Elias and Braun should win the tag team titles at WrestleMania 34.

#3 Rebuild the Tag Team division

The Raw tag division has not been in the best state this year. Since Jason Jordan's injury and the failed Sheild reunion, The Bar has been the only legitimate tag-team on Monday nights.

While the company have tried to elevate other talents, as they did with Titus Worldwide in February, the fans have struggled to buy teams who have essentially been jobbers for the last year challenging established competitors like Sheamus and Cesaro.

Elevating Strowman and Elias to the titles not only dethrones The Bar, but it adds attention to the division, and will also allow other teams to prosper. Strowman and Elias will likely be at each other's throats all the time, and their volatile relationship means it would be believable for any team to snatch a victory against them, especially if one of them develops a habit for leaving the other to fend for themselves.

Having these two stars dominating the division also guarantees a rub for the team that eventually overthrows them. A pinfall victory over the team, even if it's over Elias, would instantly elevate the team that beat them, and it could be the perfect opportunity to elevate a hot new tag team.
