• Steve Austin Reveals Why He Was Not A Fan Of Nicholas Winning The Raw Tag Team Championship With Braun Strowman At WrestleMania 34
During a recent edition of The Steve Austin Show, WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin talked about the WrestleMania 34 segment where Braun Strowman picks a kid (Nicholas) as his partner against The Bar, doing a disservice to Cesaro and Sheamus.
Below is what Austin said:
“Braun Strowman is over like rover, a lot of potential, a lot of momentum, a lot of great storylines for him. But the fact that he goes out there in the crowd and picks some kid, it’s almost like a disservice to Cesaro and Sheamus who’ve been working their a**es off. Two physical specimens, have really gotten some chemistry together as a team. Not to be taken lightly. Braun’s a big guy, but you know, Cesaro’s one of the strongest guys in the locker room. Sheamus is a brute.
They can’t monetize this person who was picked from the crowd. And, I don’t know, I wasn’t really down with it, and that’s with respect to a darn good tag team like The Bar. And then Strowman picks someone [from the crowd], I just, man you’re walking a fine line with him, because you have this brute force killer who’s legitimately one of the biggest, strongest men in the world. It didn’t do much for me.”
