• “All he did was have the title” – WWE Hall Of Famer On Braun Strowman’s Universal Title Run
While speaking on his Hall Of Fame podcast, two time WWE Hall Of Famer Booker T discussed Braun Strowman’s Universal Championship reign and said that The Monster Among Men didn’t have a good run with it.
“I mean [Strowman] hadn’t had a really okay run. He hadn’t really done anything, you know what I mean? All he did was have the title. He held the title but he really didn’t get a chance to do anything with it due to the situation that we’re in right now, it’s hard to move around.
I don’t know. That thing’s going to have play out for me because I think the whole deal was more so about the story than it was about the title between Braun Strowman and “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt. I could be wrong, I could be wrong.
The title just happened to be a part of it and the title didn’t conflict with Braun Strowman losing because of, it was about the story. That’s what I see. Was the title in a better place with Braun Strowman? Who’s gonna wrestle him, who’s gonna beat him? The same thing with Bray Wyatt? Who’s gonna wrestle him, who’s gonna beat him? Roman Reigns.”
