WWE Payback 2017: 3 Predictions for Braun Strowman vs. Roman Reigns

2 of 4


 3. Braun Strowman Wins Cleanly

As much as a major portion of the entire WWE universe would want this, this is indeed the least likely scenario. The last time these two faced each other, it was Roman Reigns who had his hands raised in the air. Would the tide turn in favor of Strowman this time around? WWE creative would most likely say no.

As much as one would love to see Strowman go over, WWE has been adamant about Reigns. However, Braun still has a slight shimmer of hope. There have been rumors about Strowman facing Brock Lesnar later in the year. As such, what better way would there be to build towards that feud than by taking out the Big Dog? If plans for Strowman and Lesnar to battle over the Universal title are indeed true, then the Monster Among Men would need to look like a real monster.

Moreover, Paul Heyman already spoke about his intentions to have Lesnar challenge Roman Reigns. The ‘Two in Twenty Three and Two’ might have to postpone their eventual clash if Braun Strowman decides to crash the party. After all, what better way would there be to get Lesnar’s attention than to take out the one man he has set his eyes on.

The Monster Among Men certainly stands a chance in this contest. Perhaps even bigger than the last time considering his rise in popularity over the past few weeks. The question remains though; is it enough to put Reigns down?
