What's the story?

Well, it's one of the big stories heading into WrestleMania weekend, who will be Braun Strowman's partner to face The Bar for the Raw Tag Team Championships?

The Monster Among Men's controversial tag team Battle Royal win a few weeks ago on Monday Night Raw has sent the Internet into a frenzy with WWE keeping us all in the dark on who'll take the spot.

In case you didn't know…

A few weeks ago on Raw, Braun Strowman shocked the WWE Universe when he entered and single-handedly won a tag team Battle Royal to crown the number one contenders for the Raw Tag Team Championships at WrestleMania.

There had been speculation that Braun may go it alone and try to become the first Superstar to ever hold both Tag Team Championships as a solo star, but Kurt Angle, the Raw General Manager, announced that Strowman must find a tag team partner in order to compete in the match.

The heart of the matter

Well, speaking to Best of New Orleans, Braun Strowman wasn't giving much away. When asked who he has in mind for his partner, The Monster Among Men simply answered, "Buy a ticket, subscribe to the WWE Network, and you'll find out."

However, Strowman was also asked, if he could choose a WWE Legend to be his partner for the weekend, who he would choose.

For this weekend? No one, because I don't want to share anything with anyone. I've worked my tail end off. I've taken this opportunity by the horns and I'm gonna run with it. Now, maybe after I win the titles by myself, I'd have to go with Andre the Giant. He started the legacy of the big man, I'm continuing it, so why not make it full circle?

What's next?

Braun Strowman will challenge Sheamus and Cesaro at WrestleMania this Sunday in the hope of winning his first ever WWE championship, the Raw Tag Team Championships.

WWE is keeping the WWE Universe in suspense, though, with Braun's mystery partner not being unveiled until the actual event in New Orleans.

Author's take

Well, I'm all in with Braun Strowman and, while I wish he were in the main event personally, WWE has done great with the build to both matches respectively. I can't wait to find out who Strowman chooses as his partner. I'd have personally loved it to have been James Ellsworth, or even Brains Strowman.
