With a constant dip in ratings, WWE had to do something to increase their viewership before losing out on some fans.

Vince and the team usually end up taking drastic measures to correct the viewership of their product as its the bread and butter of their company.

With the Money in the Bank pay-per-view on the horizon, the creatives tried to do just that by making some of the most surprising and unexpected segments and bookings on both Raw and SmackDown this week.

We saw many unexpected matches with a few even turning out to be dream ones. Apart from that, a couple of WrestleMania 35 rematches were also scheduled by Vince on Raw this week.

In this article, we will look at the 5 unexpected things that happened on the two main shows, and what impact it might have on the product going forward.

#5 Braun Strowman chased down Sami Zayn

Sami Zayn continued his ace work on the mic from a few weeks ago and appeared on Monday Night Raw to address the fans once again.

Just like he’s done in the past, he spoke about everything that has been going around in the WWE recently, including announcements from Mr. McMahon earlier in the night, the WrestleMania rematches, and criticized the WWE Universe for its criticisms.

While we were expecting Zayn to end another promo without facing any problems, he met with the biggest problem that exists in WWE instead.


Braun Strowman’s music hit, and The Monster Among Men stormed down the ramp as Zayn abandoned the ring and escaped through the same fans he spent minutes criticizing, only for a rushing Strowman to cut him off.

It was completely unexpected to watch the big man target Zayn once again, as the two have had a long-running rivalry in the past. If WWE goes ahead with a feud between the two men again, then a decisive winner would after the other superstar’s image in the company.

Strowman ended the segment last night by slamming Sami Zayn into a dumpster.
