• WWE Planning A Huge Moment With Braun Strowman During Tonight’s Elimination Chamber Match?
During a recent interview with ESPN, “The Big Dog” Roman Reigns hinted that WWE might be planning a huge moment with Braun Strowman during tonight’s Men’s Elimination Chamber match:
“A guy who is as special as Braun Strowman, maybe we can do something really cool and destroy something. Him and his character always seem to be like the safest vehicle to go down that route. Him and Vince always seem to come up with something new.
An ambulance wasn’t enough, then he flipped a semi. The structure is so big. I’m sure there’s something we can do creatively to come up with and make a huge moment and hopefully leave a great impression on Las Vegas and the Elimination Chamber match itself – something that people will remember for a long time.”
