Opinion: If Braun Strowman wins the Tag Team Championships, how should he lose them?

Braun Strowman could become the first ever man to hold both Tag Team Championships

Well, everyone wanted Braun Strowman to get a title shot at WrestleMania, but I don't think anyone expected THIS!

Maybe 'The Monster Among Men' would be added to the WWE Universal Championship Match between Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns, maybe even the Triple Threat for the Intercontinental Championship could become a Fatal 4-Way. Maybe even Strowman gets himself fired from Raw for causing mass destruction week after week and finds himself on SmackDown... But no, Braun Strowman decimates the entire tag team division to seemingly become the number one contender for the WWE Raw Tag Team Championships.

So, if Braun Strowman is allowed to compete by himself at WrestleMania and manages to defeat both Sheamus and Cesaro, how do we book him losing the titles?

Well, for me, there's only one tag team who should defeat the Monster, and they could even do so the next night on Raw.

These two monsters would shock the world if they beat Strowman on Raw

The Monday Night Raw after WrestleMania often sees at least one Superstar make the jump up to the main roster, and has even seen debutants win championships in the past. Well, this would be the MONSTER of all monster pushes if it were to happen.

Braun Strowman issues an open challenge to main event Raw for his Tag Team Championships. The lights fade to black, and we're introduced to one of the most dominant tag teams to ever compete in NXT...

The Authors
The Authors of Pain would make a huge impact on Raw

The Authors of Pain have made waves on NXT over the past year and change, being involved in several classic matches and pretty much-laying waste to everyone and everything in sight - and many would say they're long overdue a call-up to the main roster.


What better way to debut than to challenge Braun Strowman for the Tag Team Championships and take out the Monster Among Men on your main roster debut?

And it can be done one of two ways - they either destroy Strowman and leave him lying in a heap, setting up a rivalry with the most dominant force in WWE, or you could even have WWE set up a No Holds Barred Match or anything goes, and have both Akam and Rezar pin the Monster at the same time to keep Braun looking strong.

In fact, I think it's almost a must that, even if Strowman doesn't become Tag Team Champion..., then the AOP must debut on Raw. WWE could essentially book a build up to a cross brand Tag Team Champions vs Champions match where we see two incredibly dominant teams face off against one another in the Authors of Pain and the Bludgeon Brothers!

The Bludgeon Brothers have taken SmackDown by storm

I mean, who wouldn't want to see these four monsters tear it up after two parallel, dominant reigns in WWE as champions? For me, the Authors of Pain MUST come to the main roster after WrestleMania.

Book it, WWE!
