In many ways, the upcoming WWE Universal Title match at Money in the Bank is a long time coming.
On Smackdown, Bray Wyatt confronted Braun Strowman and challenged him to a match at Money in the Bank. Strowman threatened that Wyatt would “get these hands,” but the former leader of the Wyatt Family left a black sheep mask in the ring to remind his former protege of the pecking order that was established early in the “Monster Among Men’s” early main roster career.
If WWE handles the storyline correctly — something they may be able to manage given Wyatt’s incredible promo skills and history of character-building — this could, by all accounts, be a career-defining feud for Strowman.
While an exciting and impressive talent in his own right, Strowman has never benefited from an extended feud that carried any considerable depth. Perhaps confronting Wyatt would be the catalyst he needs to firmly establish himself as a permanent main event fixture.
The problems with this content, if we are being critical, lie in the fact that Wyatt — and his seemingly invincible “Fiend” persona — was squashed in Saudi Arabia by a 53-year-old Bill Goldberg just two months ago.
Mind you, that is the very same Bill Goldberg who Strowman defeated in under three minutes at Wrestlemania 36. In this contest, how are we supposed to believe that Wyatt (as himself or The Fiend) can give Strowman a legitimate contest?
