4 reasons why Baron Corbin attacked Braun Strowman on Monday Night Raw
This week’s Monday Night Raw happened in Phoenix, Arizona. This is the same place where this year’s Royal Rumble pay-per-view happened. During the show, Lynch and Seth Rollins won their respective Royal Rumble matches, and both of them revealed their opponents on this week’s Raw.
The show was full of exciting bookings, but not for some superstars. In the show, Strowman was attacked by Baron Corbin during his match against Drew McIntyre.
But why did Corbin do this?
Well, there are many reasons why he could have done this, but today, I will list only 4 of them. So without further ado, lets dive in.
#4 WWE is planning to make a new heel team on Raw
When McIntyre was called up from NXT to Raw, the WWE engaged him in a tag team with Dolph Ziggler. This tag team lasted for some months, and during this period they both even captured the Raw Tag Team Championship.
However, a few weeks ago, the WWE broke this team so they could focus on McIntyre as a singles superstar. At one point, Corbin, McIntyre, and Lashley attacked Braun Strowman, injuring his shoulder.
Something similar happened this week as well, but the only difference was that Lashley wasn’t with Corbin and McIntyre during the attack.
What happened this week indicated that the WWE could be planning to create a new heel faction on Monday Night Raw.
Could we see Corbin and McIntyre on the same team?
#3 To make Strowman a sympathetic face
The WWE has already hurt Strowman a lot. And they are still doing it!
However, there’s a difference between the past and the present. Then Strowman’s career was getting hurt, but now his body is taking the damage. Well, this could be a great thing for him.
We all know that the WWE Universe hates Corbin more than anyone on the roster. And whenever he beats their favorite superstars (Kurt Angle and Braun Strowman for instance), the fans get angry and boo him. This could be an excellent thing for Braun Strowman if the WWE decides to continue.
Strowman is a wrestler that barely loses in the WWE, and if someone like Corbin attacks him, then he would undoubtedly receive cheers from the fans.
Isn’t this great for a face?
