We have seen a lot of highs and lows over the past few years when it comes Braun Strowman. From nagging injuries to less than desirable story lines, Braun has been in "career purgatory".
It is looking like WWE creative is trying to bring "The Monster" back out of Braun. According to a report by Tom Colohue, he was informed by a source within WWE that the Lashley and Strowman angle is being used to showcase the power and strength of Strowman, and get back to his gimmick as being The Monster Among Men.
Tom writes, "The idea is to get Strowman back to his roots as a monster, just destroying everything in his path. He hasn’t been used as effectively as he could be.”
