The segment between Braun Strowman and Brock Lesnar on this week’s RAW left much to be desired. It did not deliver on many levels.
As reported earlier, Braun Strowman was not cleared for in-ring competition, which is why the two did not have any physical altercation. If it looked like Strowman was out of it, there is apparently a good reason for that.
On Wrestling Observer Online, Bryan Alvarez explained that Braun Strowman had apparently forgotten his lines. Here is what he said:
“Yeah, Braun Strowman forget every singe line.”
“Strowman’s a big guy, people like him. He doesn’t do those trainwreck segments that everybody thinks is great. The reality is he’s not your top guy. He cannot deliver in the ring unless you’ve got gimmicks. Straight professional wrestling matches I mean he’s not top level.”
“As we saw last night he’s not cleared to wrestle so he had to do a talking segment and he’s not a main event talker. He’s not even close to being a main event talker. He’s forgetting his lines, stumbling through things, it was awkward.”
Perhaps Braun was just having an off-day, or that he still has a long way to go until he can actually cut a good promo. Either way, we still do not know when Braun will be cleared to compete. Hopefully, it is in time for the Royal Rumble.
