Jabroni Journal: Braun Strowman Is The Monster We Need

March 23, 2017

It's no secret that Vince McMahon loves his monsters. From Undertaker to Andre The Giant, The Big Show and Kane, the wizard behind the curtain of the WWE has succeeded in creating some of the most dominant and intimidating characters in wrestling history. Of course there's been missteps - *cough* Giant Gonzales *cough* along the way....

The majority of the popular superstars on the WWE roster are smaller wrestlers. Guys like AJ Styles, Dean Ambrose, Neville, Finn Balor and Seth Rollins are incredible performers that will undoubtedly steal the show on any given night....but they lack that WOW factor. That sideshow factor. The freak of nature factor. The GIANT factor. The Big Show, The Undertaker and Kane are all in the twilights of their respective careers. In 5 years (or even less), I wouldn't expect to see any of those three in the squared circle. So it's important that we look to the future for our GIANT....and the future is HUGE !

Just one year ago, if you would have told me I would be blogging about the potential of Braun Strowman I would have fallen over laughing. But within the past 12 months, this menacing man has made such vast improvements that I truly believe he is future world champion material. I'm not trying to say he's some technical wrestling wizard or anything, but damn it, when he gets in that ring and man handles Roman Reigns, it's 100% believable.

Right now it doesn't appear that Braun has anything scheduled at next weekend's Wrestlemania card aside from the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal. If they want to keep him strong and rehab him from his loss on the last PPV to Reigns, he absolutely needs to dominate the battle royal. This could lead up to a big stare down with The Big Show in the end. How great would it be to see Strowman toss over The Big Show, cementing his place as the next big monster?

Braun Strowman is the monster we need in 2017 and beyond.
