Braun Strowman has been drafted to RAW in this year’s WWE Draft. He showed up on the Red brand’s episodes for a few weeks before that to fight and defeat Dabba Kato on RAW Underground.
After being officially drafted, the first Superstar Strowman will face on RAW is the former NXT Champion Keith Lee. Before that, he will face Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship on SmackDown.
The Monster Among Men spoke to Sportskeeda’s Rick Ucchino about coming “home” to RAW and whom he will feud with next once he is done with his current rivals.

The two will face off on next week’s RAW season premiere in an official match. But before that he will bid farewell to the Blue brand with one last epic match against Roman Reigns. He will challenge the Tribal Chief on Friday’s SmackDown for the WWE Universal Championship.
Strowman called Roman Reigns his “biggest adversary till date” in the interview, and that he might never be really finished with him. But once he defeats both Reigns and Lee, Strowman is going to turn his eyes to the WWE Championship.
He issued a warning to the current Champion, Drew McIntyre, and said he was coming for his belt next. The two share quite the history dating back to 2018.
“Drew McIntyre, enjoy holding that (WWE) World Heavyweight Championship because you know I’m coming for it. You know I want it. You know we got bad beef. I’ve eaten more Claymore Kicks than I’m damn sure willing to admit to, so I’ve got something coming for you, I’ve just got to humble Roman Reigns and this new kid Keith Lee real quick.” h/t Sportskeeda
On coming back to WWE RAW
Strowman admitted that being drafted to RAW was like coming back home for him. He hopes to remind the WWE Universe while on the Red brand’s roster, that he is “at the top of the food chain”.
“You know, going home. The red brand is where it all started. When I got drafted away from the Wyatt Family, I was on RAW. And as much of an amazing time as I’ve had destroying poor souls with Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper, and Erick Rowan – you guys haven’t even seen what I’m fully capable of. Not just as a performer, but as a man. I’m going back home, a place where I made a name for myself. I’m going to go back and remind everyone on the RAW brand that I am the alpha of WWE. I’m at the top of the food chain.”
Another recent adversary of Strowman’s, The Fiend, has also been drafted to RAW, along with his new partner Alexa Bliss. The Monster Among Men shared his thoughts on the pair as well. He is not at all thrilled by the things those two are doing together in the ring.
