Report: Braun Strowman likely has a shock WrestleMania 34 opponent

Braun Strowman

Championship gold is unlikely to be far away for arguably WWE’s most over superstar in Braun Strowman, and he will have the opportunity on Sunday to make that a reality when he battles Kane and Brock Lesnar for the WWE Universal Championship.

While we wait for the outcome of Sunday’s showdown, the suggestion is that Strowman is likely to be moving in a new direction come Monday morning, including a potential new feud.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that the current plan is for the Monster Among Men to face none other than The Miz for the Intercontinental title at WrestleMania 34. A possible match that is likely to cement the much discussed Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar main event that same night.

Strowman and The Miz have history going back to TLC in October when Miz worked with Kane, Cesaro and Sheamus to throw Strowman into a garbage truck.

Is this a feud which excites you? Should both men be headed in different directions for WWE’s biggest pay-per-view?

  • Arnold Jackson

    Miz will get to do the match with a gun

  • Arnold Jackson

    That’s how I would see it.

  • Arnold Jackson

    He would squash Goldberg

  • Arnold Jackson

    That would have been cool

  • Arnold Jackson

    Lashley has to win his first fight tho. ECW is one of the very few that brought in big names and have them lose right away.

  • Arnold Jackson

    Why do you think he gets moved to SD?

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    Ok after the Royal Rumble tonight I can now see Braun Strowman winning the IC title at WrestleMania 34. Probably will give him a long IC title run where it leads him to holding both IC and Universal or WWE championship at the same time. Because he probably gets move to Smackdown after WrestleMania 34.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    I agree with that statement. Heck at least after Lesnar lose the title we will see the Universal Championship on Raw more often.

    Braun has improved greatly since his debut, but not enough that he could carry Goldberg in a match.

  • HBK

    Bobby Lashley

  • MrDr3w

    And have Goldberg squash him in one minute? No thank you…

  • CC

    I heard a rumour though that Brawn would win the Rumble by getting out of the ring (through the ropes of course) and lifting the ring up, tipping everyone out. 😉

  • CC

    Strowman as Universal champion is a great idea, but not against Miz.
    Miz is great, dont get me wrong, but he is the wrong guy to go up against Strowman.
    There would/should only be two outcomes. Strowman winning in a squash match (how could we seriously believe Miz could beat a guy who can tip over a truck), or Miz winning due to interference or at least retaining through DQ.

  • Kristopher Robinson

    I would prefer they just do a squash match on RAW and give Braun a more convincing opponent for Mania. Like everyone else says, he would make quick work of Miz.

  • Kristopher Robinson

    Braun ne Goldberg wouldn’t make sense unless it was more of a promo/Goldberg spearing him or something.

  • I could not have less interest in either feud. So as of this moment I have no interest in WM this year. I think the only opponent that I would really be hyped to see Strowman face at WM would be Goldberg. As far as Reigns and Brock goes, I don’t think that would be the best for Brock to go out on assuming he doesn’t resign to stay after Mania and Reigns is so overexposed at this point I can’t think of a single opponent I would really want to see him face.

  • Raidertre

    That doesn’t excite me at all. I could see Braun making quick work of Miz. I can see them hyping this up and then making quick work of the match right away like when Sheamus beat Daniel Bryan. Or when Warrior beat HHH.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    Unless Braun Strowman walks out the Royal Rumble Unverlasial Champion. I think it a good chance after this last Monday night on Raw. I just think the WWE now wants to put the WWE Unverlasial Championship on Strowman now an I think the Rumble is the place.

  • pitfallharry219

    It could be good if they actually make it look like Miz has a chance

  • zim

    that just sounds awful.
    we’re talking about 2 straight months of Braun destroying the Miztourage while Miz narrowly escapes and then he wins at Mania to a big whoopty damn doo. Lazy ass booking.
    this man needs to be holding the Universal title.

  • ROB-1.

    I think the Miz & Strowman would be a good feud.
