5 Possible storylines for Braun Strowman after his Crown Jewel loss
One of the most controversially booked WWE Superstars, Braun Strowman, suffered a defeat in his ‘special attraction’ contest against Tyson Fury at WWE Crown Jewel 2019. Strowman tried his best to keep the professional boxer down, however, the company followed its practice of allowing celebrities to go over their mainstay Superstars, as Tyson Fury overpowered the former RAW Tag Team Champion by count-out.
As per the rumor mill, 'The Gypsy King' will head back to the world of boxing while Strowman is currently directionless on SmackDown. Strowman was unfortunately unavailable for the Blue brand's last episode, as he found himself stuck in Saudi Arabia.
With the Survivor Series pay-per-view approaching, creative will look to book Strowman dominantly, so that his character remains relevant on Friday nights. Here are five potential storylines for 'The Monster Among Men' after his setback at Crown Jewel.
#5 Join 'The Fiend' Bray Wyatt
WWE shocked the wrestling world by crowning Bray Wyatt as the new Universal Champion at Crown Jewel. Fans expected creative to transfer him to RAW after he secured the Red brand’s world title, however, WWE has allowed him to stick around on Friday nights by sending WWE Champion Brock Lesnar to the ‘A Show' instead.
Now that Wyatt has reached the pinnacle of WWE, writers will try to add new dimensions to his character and attract more eyes to SmackDown. Since fans have been craving a Wyatt Family reunion, WWE can book Braun Strowman to become The Fiend’s new partner. After all, Wyatt was the one who introduced 'The Monster' to the WWE Universe.
Formerly known as 'The Black Sheep,' Braun can turn into Wyatt's insurance policy and can stand up for the Universal Champion when he is in the Firefly Fun House. This way, the Greatest Royal Rumble winner can linger in the main event picture and then WWE may set up a betrayal angle to kick off a huge rivalry between Wyatt and Strowman.
