• RAW Star Turns Babyface Again?
As seen in the main event of this week’s RAW, The Dogs Of War (Braun Strowman and RAW Tag Team Champions Drew McIntyre & Dolph Ziggler) stable imploded when they lost to The Shield and Strowman powerslammed Ziggler after the match.
This resulted in McIntyre laying out Strowman with a Claymore Kick.
According to the Wrestling Observer, Strowman might have turned into a babyface as he defeated Ziggler in a singles match at a recent WWE Live Event while acting as a complete babyface and went after McIntyre & Ziggler at another event.
As we noted before, Wrestling Observer noted that WWE creative team is coming up with weekly content for this storyline and there is currently no “end game” for this angle.
So it’s quite possible that WWE is now going to book Strowman as a babyface again (which he was prior to joining forces with McIntyre & Ziggler).
Below is what WWE posted about this angle in their Monday Night RAW preview:
“Braun Strowman laid down the law to Dolph Ziggler & Drew McIntyre before their rubber match with The Shield: You mess up, you pay.
Ziggler got pinned, and Braun got angry, but McIntyre had the last word, leveling The Monster Among Men with a Claymore after the titanic Superstar had flattened McIntyre’s fellow Raw Tag Team Champion with a Running Powerslam.
The Scottish Psychopath notably didn’t help Ziggler to his feet after the confrontation — he just walked to the top of the ring and stared Strowman down — but it appeared a line in the sand had been drawn for Strowman nonetheless.
Braun is known to take his time with his enemies, but with a Universal Title opportunity looming at Crown Jewel, can he afford to fight a war on two fronts?”
