What measures can WWE start taking to make Braun Strowman actually look like a heel ahead of Great Balls of Fire?

As we strap in for what promises to be one of the most brutal ambulance matches in WWE history at Great Balls of Fire, there’s one nagging issue with this long-running feud between Braun Strowman and Roman Reigns that’s still quite hard to shake.

After all that’s gone down between these men over the last three months; how can WWE stand there and tell us that Reigns is the baby face and Strowman is the heel?

It would be easier to understand if Reigns took the John Cena approach to his work, and did everything humanly possible to come across as the good guy without actually receiving the adulation of the fans as a result, but the dude comes out with a cocky demeanor each and every week and constantly badgers the fans into booing him.

Whether it’s rubbing our faces in the fact that he defeated The Undertaker at WrestleMania, or a snide remark for those in the crowd belittling his wrestling ability, Reigns doesn’t come across as the hero in this story.

As a direct result of this, Braun Strowman has gone from the WWE’s potential top monster heel to one of the most beloved faces in wrestling, due to his proclivity towards beating down Roman Reigns every chance he gets.

With just over a week remaining until the pay-per-view, now is the time for WWE to make a decision and really pull the trigger on how they want to proceed from here.

Are they going to finally give in to fate and fully transition Roman Reigns into a heel role with a double turn? Or are they going to keep kidding themselves and continue to force Reigns into the limelight as the golden boy of Monday Night Raw, despite the fact that he’s been rejected by the fans in attendance each and every week?

Don’t be surprised if it’s the latter, but if that is the case, the company would really want to consider ways in which their failing project can possibly be salvaged before Roman Reigns wrestles yet another pay-per-view amidst a chorus of boos.

Getting the fans to like him is out of the question, but there may be a number of ways to get more heat on Strowman to at least mask the fact that Reigns is the most hated man in professional wrestling for the remainder of this feud.

What are those solutions? Let’s take a look.
