There has been no peace in recent months around the figure of Braun Strowman. Chosen as one of the men who should have led SmackDown in the passage to Fox, the impact of the Monster Among Men with the blue show was certainly not simple or without empty jokes, although the satisfactions have overtime proved to be of the highest level.
Before a new, sudden change of perspective. Long presented as a good monster (i.e. since his feud against the then Universal Champion Roman Reigns ended), Braun Strowman has long been involved in the Intercontinental title feud against Sami Zayn and his allies Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura, only to find himself catapulted into the WrestleMania 36 match against Goldberg, suddenly graduating Universal Champion in a match that up until two days before he didn't even have to play.
Then the feud with Bray Wyatt, which made him bad again. But now, back on Raw, Braun Strowman is still on the heel or after only two months he can be considered a face again.
Rumors on Braun Strowman
Braun Strowman ended his time on SmackDown with a defeat to re-found universal champion Roman Reigns and after the WWE Draft, he continued his heel when he faced Keith Lee on Raw.
But even that story seems to be out of date. The turn face ordered by Vince McMahon himself makes Strowman a possible future challenger to the WWE Championship currently held by Randy Orton, currently struggling with the Bray Wyatt threat, who with the passage of time seems increasingly considered a babyface by the management (in spite of the extremely disturbing character he plays).
Meanwhile, Braun Strowman awaits the Survivor Series, which he will take part in as a member of the Raw men's team along with AJ Styles, Sheamus, Riddle and Keith Lee. Usually, wrestlers turn babyface or heel in clearly-defined promos, segments, or matches where that momentum has been building.
There are some notable exceptions, such as the Big Show, whose constant turning is a rib that the fans are in on. But nowadays in WWE, the promotion is starting to turn wrestlers face and heel at their convenience without much warning.
Take, for example, WWE Raw superstar Braun Strowman. If you ask the majority of wrestling fans, they would absolutely consider the man who beat Keith Lee with a low blow then justified it as a clean win last week to be a heel. There would be no argument there.
