Braun Strowman told TMZ Sports about his WWE title match against Bobby Lashley and Drew McIntyre, “It’s three larger-than-life men about to go to war,” Strowman said. “I mean, there’s nowhere else on Earth you’re gonna see three guys like this square up and beat the ever living hell out of each other. This is King Kong meets Godzilla meets The Incredible Hulk for the battle of the alpha of Monday Night Raw.
Who’s going to be at the top of the food chain? Who’s going to be the guy that represents Monday Night Raw, and I damn sure ain’t planning on coming out of the backside of WrestleMania Backlash not carrying that WWE Championship.”
“With it being a Triple Threat, there’s no rules — you’ve seen in the past, the ‘Monster Among Men’ will pick up anything he can get his hands on and use as a weapon,” Strowman added. “This match is catered and built to me, to the way I like to fight. There’s no rules, there’s no regulations, there’s no nothing. There’s no running, there’s no hiding, you’re gonna get these hands.”
