Braun Strowman is truly 'The Monster Among Men'. He's one of the most physically imposing Superstars in WWE history and perhaps one of the best 'big men' the company's ever had, but he's also yet to become a world champion.

The WWE Universe has seen Strowman tip over a production truck, tip over an ambulance with Roman Reigns still inside, knock over Mr. McMahon's limousine, destroy a car, annihilate Kevin Owens hiding in a portable toilet, and dominate an entire Royal Rumble in Saudi Arabia.

Wrestling fans have even seen 'The Monster Among Men' somehow survive being squashed in a trash compactor, which is something that no mere mortal would ever hope to experience.

One thing the WWE Universe has never seen is Braun Strowman raising a WWE world championship above his head. It's a shocking fact, but it's true. It's not like he hasn't had opportunities to do so, as he's been in a whopping six world title matches - all for the Universal Title.

Let's take a look at all six of Braun Stroman's world championship opportunities!

#6. SummerSlam 2017 - Brock Lesnar (c) Vs. Braun Strowman Vs. Roman Reigns Vs. Samoa Joe

At Great Balls of Fire, Brock Lesnar defeated Samoa Joe to retain his Universal Title and Braun Strowman defeated Roman Reigns in an Ambulance Match. This led to all four men eventually being added to a Fatal 4-Way match at SummerSlam with the Universal Title on the line.

Brock Lesnar would eventually retain his title in this match, but it was Braun Strowman who would steal the show with multiple running powerslams through tables, a huge double chokeslam, and a devastating running dropkick. Strowman even went as far as to throw steel chairs at both Samoa Joe and Roman Reigns.


Sadly, stealing the show isn't quite as good as becoming world champion. Although Strowman nearly won the coveted Universal championship, Brock Lesnar pulled the referee out of the ring on a two-count. Lesnar inevitably retained the Universal Championship by hitting Reigns with an F5 before pinning him.
