Backstage news on future plans for Braun Strowman

Braun Strowman

Last night’s TLC PPV was filled with several high spots but one of the true OMG moments was when The Miz and the rest of the team put Braun Strowman, their own partner into the garbage truck so he can be ‘crushed’.

Many fans noted that the whole incident presented him more as a face coming out of the PPV instead of the heel he has been for the majority of his career so far.

Dave Meltzer also noted the same on the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio and mentioned that the company is turning the Monster Among Men into a babyface.

The idea behind it is that as a face Strowman can be involved in fresh angles going against the heels of the roster as so far he has only had rivalries with faces.

It’s not exactly known who will be the next to compete with Strowman, but coming out of TLC it looks likely that the Big Red Monster Kane could be the next opponent of Braun.

    The internet these days… I’m still trying to keep up with stupid-*ss terms. Still, never heard that one before now. In my day, we just called ’em “teeny-boppers” or simply “tweens” as in anything around the age of 12 through 15. Never “tweener” that comes off as idiotic and makes childish sense.

    And? I have been following wrestling for nearly 40 years. I have trained in a wrestling ring and have numerous friends who are wrestlers. Tweeners or greys have been common terms for years.
    This isn’t a “I have more experience than you” competition, its just a straight up fact that the term tweener has existed longer than I can remember, so has nothing to do with me trying to sound hip, which you insinuated.

  • Armitage Soulshroude

    I’ve been around the industey since I was 8, and mever once have I heard of the term.

  • BB

    CC is right. The term tweener has been around forever.

    Probably after Survivor Series Braun Strowman vs The Miz for the IC title at Night of Champion.

    Eh? the word tweener has been part of wrestling speak since I was a kid, and I am fucking old.

  • Ben

    Miz is facing Baron Corbin and Ambrose and Rollins are facing the usos, unless the titles change hands, and its team raw vs smackdown

  • Soulshroude

    I’ll down rate you just because you tried on a made up term, “tweener”. Why not just type “in between”? Instead of trying to come off as “the cool kid”? You come off as a texting, millennial.

  • CC

    He has not been a heel for a long while now.
    He has been more of a tweener, which is why it was so surprising that he would ally himself with anyone in the first place.

  • HBK

    Survivor series…. Shield, Jason Jordan and mystery partner strowman vs miz, the bar, Kane and elias????

    I just say they mightiness will turn the guy face because the fans been on his side for months. I also see him going after The Miz IC title because he not going to let the Miz get off that easy.
