Reason why Braun Strowman destroyed Enzo Amore on Raw last week

Enzo Amore braun Strowman

As seen on last week’s episode of Raw which was the go-home show for the No Mercy PPV, Braun Strowman destroyed Enzo Amore during a segment.

During the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer talked about this and revealed that it was designed to generate some heel heat for Braun Strowman.

According to the Wrestling Journalist, it was done because, despite all the negative reports about him, Enzo has continued to be a major crowd favorite and Officials believed that beating him would get Strowman booed.

It’s interesting to note here that this week’s episode of Raw ended with a segment where the whole Cruiserweight Division turned on Enzo Amore and attacked the new Cruiserweight Champion.

After the show went off air, Braun Strowman again made his way to the ring and attacked the Realest Guy In The Roof. WWE posted the video of this off air beatdown which can be seen below:

    I think they are going to put Neville and Strowman as a team. They will take the tag titles from Rollins and Amborse. This also a step on bringing Neville back to the main roster.

    I dont believe this story for a second. Strowman is a tweener, and that is how he is booked. He likes nobody and will attack anyone, heel or face (much the same as Austin at his peak).
    It is especially unbelievable considering Amores heel turn.

    I think its more than likely due to Enzos heat backstage and just being a way to put him in his place on screen.

    And with the exception of the kids etc, and mark fans, Enzo is not really as over as someone like Strowman.
    You only have to look at the reaction from the crowd in that above clip. When he first came out at the start of the segment, he was getting his usual crowd reaction, but as soon as he started insulting the other guys and even more so when Neville came out, the crowd started to turn on him.
    Yes he has a fan base no doubt, but he is not popular enough to make fans boo Strowman.

    If you want Strowman booed, it has to be with someone who really matters to the fans. You only have to look how quickly fans turned on Bayley to see that a lot of these newer NXT wrestlers are only getting huge fan support in short bursts, not long term.

    I think Braun Strowman is half heel and half face. He has turn into my favorite wrestler in the WWE right now.

    So basically they felt Enzo was strong enough of a face for Braun to get heat from beating him up yet the following week they basically turn Enzo heel

    I got dizzy just watching this.

    “Realest guy in the Roof”…. LOL!

    I suppose I understand the locker room spilling out into the ring. I don’t understand trying to get heat on Strowman. Why don’t they want people to like him as a face? Isn’t Lesnar still a heel? I thought the fans decided they liked Strowman a while ago, but WWE keeps trying to steer them and create this gray area.
