Braun Strowman

What's the story?

Mike Johnson of has stated that the spot where McIntyre knocks down the Greatest Royal Rumble Trophy on RAW after being tossed out of the ring was not pre-planned.

In case you didn't know...

Drew McIntyre made his main roster return on this year's edition of RAW's Superstar Shakeup as a team along with Dolph Ziggler.

The duo has made it clear that they are here to make an impact and have repeatedly taunted the locker room for becoming lazy and uninspired.

This past week on RAW, "The Show" faced off in tag team action against a unique pairing of Braun Strowman and Finn Balor, even picking up the win much to the surprise of many; making it clear that these two are in line for a huge push. During their match, Drew McIntyre toppled the GRR Trophy.

The heart of the matter

Mike Johnson has reported that the spot where McIntyre breaks the trophy was not planned in advance.

“They did a spot that was not planned. McIntyre was tossed onto the floor by Braun and he ended up wiping out The Greatest Royal Rumble Trophy.”

What's next?

Braun Strowman and Finn Balor have both qualified for the MITB match which will take place on the Money In The Bank PPV which will be held on 17th of June 2018.

It is highly likely that one of the two will walk out of the match with the briefcase on that night and I personally hope that it is Finn Balor who wins the MITB contract.

Author's take

I don't find this surprising at all, as one of the part and parcels of action in WWE is unexpected things happening and this is just another case of that!
