From the WWE Rumor Mill: Braun Strowman could be chasing a singles title soon
What's the story?
Braun Strowman has been on a warpath and now that he's a babyface it seems like he has a bigger license to destroy.
Dave Meltzer said it in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that it seems as though Strowman is headed for a nice new feud with the WWE Intercontinental Champion.
In case you didn't know...
Braun Strowman has been a force to be reckoned with in the WWE since his debut but he's never held a championship.
He challenged for Brock Lesnar's Universal Title but he was unsuccessful due to the fact that Lesnar is earmarked for Reigns and anyone he faces along the way are just obstacles to go through on the way to WrestleMania 34.
The heart of the matter
Braun Strowman returned via garbage truck because it made sense in Vince McMahon's brain. After all, he left via garbage truck so they had one drop him off too.
Even though, as Bryan Alvarez pointed out on Wrestling Observer Live, the two garbage trucks were different colours. That's what happened and then Strowman chased The Miz, Bo Dallas, and Curtis Axel to the ring and destroyed Axel while The Miz and Dallas got away.
Now it looks like things might be switching up for "The Monster Among Men" because Dave Meltzer asserts in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that he would appear Braun Strowman is going to start some kind of program with The Miz.
Kane and Strowman are still planned down the line but it's unclear when that will happen, although it could be a Royal Rumble marquee match. It appears the plan is for The Bar and Kane to team up and face The Shield once Reigns returns from the mumps.
Therefore it looks like Braun Strowman isn't finished terrorising The Miz and logic would assume he might as well challenge for the Intercontinental Title while he's at it.
It looks like Braun Strowman is going to face a new challenge and The Miz is going to have to deal with an even bigger one.
This will be a very interesting situation if The Miz has to keep skirting disaster time and time again. But The Miz is very good at running by now.
Everyone really needs to take notice of Braun Strowman, especially the WWE office. But as long as he's not relegated to a comedy role, I guess that's a huge win. But Strowman deserves a great program with a story that receives a lot of attention.
At this point, they're destroying him and bringing him back to life like some kind of Dragon Ball Z character.
But the promise of a program with someone like The Miz is a really promising sign.
