• Big Show Comments On Braun Strowman’s Need To Maintain His Monster Attitude
During a recent appearance on The Steve Austin show podcast, Old School WWF Legend The Big Show talked about passing the torch to Braun Strowman, Strowman’s WrestleMania angle with the kid and needing to maintain his monster attitude.
Below are the highlights:
On passing the big man torch to Braun Strowman:
“My last match was with Braun Strowman and I did the best I could to get him over and pass the big man torch to him, if I had it. Whatever I had to give, I had no problems making him. I think he’s a great guy and a hell of a talent. It was my pleasure to put the guy over and send him on his way and hopefully making him better. So I was happy with that match. It was a hell of a match. If that was my last match, you can’t ask for anything better.”
On Strowman’s WrestleMania angle with the kid:
“They’d done that great angle with Braun Strowman with a kid for a partner, which was an amazing angle. I mean, what 10-year old kid, what a dream, a pro wrestler picks you out of a crowd and you become tag team champions? It was awesome. They did a great job for Braun because Braun doesn’t need a tag partner.”
On Strowman needing to maintain his monster attitude:
“That’s one thing they’re doing right with him, they’re making him a monster. As long as they don’t have him doing stupid stuff, if they keep that monster on him. I mean, I know right now he’s a smiling babyface, which he is a good guy. It’ll be tough for him to sell and get sympathy. We went through that. But if he can keep that monster attitude about it, they’ll do very well. But that was a great opportunity for him.”
• Major Update Regarding Daniel Bryan’s New WWE Deal – Wants A Guaranteed Match With Top WWE Star
As we noted before, SmackDown Live wrestler Daniel Bryan hasn’t signed a new deal with WWE yet, but talks are going on.
According to DirtySheets.net, Bryan wants a “reasonable creative control” clause added to his new contract, where he’s seeking normal input over his long term booking and heavy input over who he feuds with, where he wants a guaranteed future match with “The Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar (who is currently the Universal Champion).
It should be noted that Bryan & Lesnar were originally planned to have a match at SummerSlam 2014, where Lesnar would’ve destroyed Bryan to capture the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, but that match got cancelled because of Bryan’s injury and him vacating the WWE World Title.
This creative clause has only been added to a wrestler’s contract twice before, and it was for Hulk Hogan and Bret Hart.
