5 Reasons why Braun Strowman assaulted Brock Lesnar's advocate, Paul Heyman on WWE RAW
- Why did the monster hold the advocate by the neck?
It's been a great episode of RAW this week. There's an air of freshness to all the proceedings, with the new names from NXT being called up. And yet, there's one thing that all of the WWE Universe has been buzzing about lately. And that's the brief altercation that Braun Strowman had with Paul Heyman.
Brock Lesnar and Braun Strowman do not have any reason to cross paths right now. Lesnar's next opponent is Seth Rollins, the winner of the Royal Rumble match. So why did this brief altercation happen between Monster and advocate?
I will list 5 reasons for the same in this article. Let me know if you agree or disagree with my assessment in the comments.
Could we see a big swerve on the road to WrestleMania?
#5 The history between Strowman and Lesnar
It is but natural that when you have two humongous individuals in the roster, where one dubs himself 'the Monster' and another calls himself 'The Beast', that they are bound to clash in the ring. Brock Lesnar and Braun Strowman are no strangers to one another for sure. In fact, they've clashed on more than one occasion.
Remember the three-way between Lesnar, Strowman and Kane from Royal Rumble 2018 where Lesnar was legitimately hurt by Strowman and then Lesnar fired back with a stiff punch of his own? Or the fact that it was Strowman who accidentally helped Roman Reigns become the Universal Champion at SummerSlam 2018. At that point, Braun Strowman was the Money In the Bank holder.
So the whole altercation between Heyman and Strowman was a callback to the fact that Lesnar and The Monster Among Men have clashed previously. But will this lead to a big angle between the two men down the line?
