Roman Reigns relinquished his Universal title when he announced that he had leukemia and had to take time off to fight it, leaving the top spot on RAW.
Braun Strowman made it all about himself on this week’s RAW, where he decimated the RAW tag team division and demanded that he wanted a rematch for the Universal Title against Brock Lesnar. Except he wanted his hands on Baron Corbin first.
On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer discussed the matter and had something interesting to say. This is what he said:
“I get the feeling from watching that Braun Strowman’s going to be a top guy but they’re not going all the way with him because it felt like he’s getting a championship match before WrestleMania based on the way that deal went down — well, he could win the championship I suppose easily but that, I guess he could win the championship and be the guy but it didn’t feel like he was the guy to me for long-term. I just felt too much one dimensional.”
“They really don’t have a whole lot of choices. It really comes down to Strowman, Rollins, and McIntyre are your 3 choices. Rollins is already pretty complete but I still think they want a bigger guy in that spot. McIntyre comes closest, you know Strowman could be but he has so many limitations.”
“I really sensed a more and more direct focus on McIntyre so we’ll have to see the way it shakes out.”
So it seems Braun vs Baron Corbin for TLC will be the supposed match at the event. We will have to wait and see how it goes.
