Predicting 5 ways in which Braun Strowman could lose the Greatest Royal Rumble match
Braun Strowman has become one of WWE’s most popular Superstars over the last year and he will be among the favourites to win the 50-man Greatest Royal Rumble in Saudi Arabia on Friday.
“The Monster Among Men” has destroyed almost everybody in his path on Monday Night Raw in recent months, from The Big Show and The Miz to Sheamus and Cesaro, and a Rumble match victory would represent the biggest accomplishment of his career so far.
However, it’s worth noting that Strowman was eliminated in his only two previous Rumble matches – by Brock Lesnar in 2016 and by Baron Corbin in 2017 – so there’s a good chance that he fails to outlast the competition again in the upcoming match.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at five ways that the former Wyatt Family member could be eliminated from the Greatest Royal Rumble.
#5 Eliminated by Baron Corbin
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter claimed recently that Vince McMahon sees Baron Corbin as a “major player” for WWE in the future and he could be in line for a big singles push soon.
“The Lone Wolf” has been away from the main-event spotlight for the last couple of months but his move to Raw in the Superstar Shake-Up gives him several new babyfaces to go toe-to-toe with on Monday nights, including the likes of Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman.
It was a surprise move by WWE’s decision-makers to have Corbin eliminate Strowman from the 2017 Royal Rumble, especially considering nothing came of it because they were on separate brands at the time.
With both men now on Raw, at least it could kick-start a storyline if the former United States champion eliminates the 385-pounder on Friday.
