WWE News: Identities of Braun Strowman RAW opponents revealed
What’s the story?
Despite Strowman referring to the aforementioned performers as “Colin Jost” and “Michael Che” – without mentioning much else about them – the professional wrestling rumor mill was largely in the know that the two enhancement talents were, in fact, indie wrestling performers.
In case you didn’t know…
Over the past few weeks, Braun Strowman has been involved in a storyline with SNL’s Colin Jost and Michael Che.
The storyline reached a crescendo on last week’s edition of Monday Night RAW, when former RAW Women's Champion Alexa Bliss confirmed on behalf of the WWE, that Jost and Che will be competing in the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania 35.
The heart of the matter
One ought to note that “The Monster Among Men” Braun Strowman will also be participating in the aforementioned Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal which takes place on “The Grandest Stage Of Them All”.
This week’s episode of RAW featured a couple of enhancement talents appearing alongside Strowman – with the latter anointing them as “Colin Jost” and “Michael Che” respectively, and eventually competing in a match against them.
The 2-on-1 Handicap Match witnessed the enhancement talents take on Strowman – in a one-sided affair that saw “The Monster Among Men” easily defeat his foes.
That said, the pro-wrestling community has been curious regarding the identities of the enhancement talents – something which The Local Competitor Twitter account has now shed light upon –
“On @WWE Raw @BraunStrowman defeated “Colin Jost” & “Michael Che”. Brandon Scott @ItsBrandonScott was Jost & Elijah King @elijahking_ was Che. Both Scott & King who wrestled at @MCWWrestling were the first local competitors to compete on Raw this year. #WWE #WWERaw #Wrestlemania”
Several WWE Superstars including Braun Strowman as well as SNL’s Colin Jost and Michael Che, will compete in the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania 35.
The WWE’s WrestleMania 35 PPV is set to air from the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey on April 7th.
