One of the big stories coming out of Crown Jewel, is Brock Lesnar winning the Universal Championship. Another story coming out of that match was how they booked Lesnar to destroy Strowman.
It came off as a burial to some but Dave Meltzer reported that the idea was that Strowman never really recovered after getting hit with the Universal Title by Baron Corbin. There could be more behind the reason why Strowman was booked the way he was on Friday.
Mike Johnson stated on PW Insider Elite audio that Strowman is having issues arriving late to shows as well as leaving early. This might be a bad sign of things to come, after all, a locker room leader not only needs to be the first one there and the last to leave, but they also need to be able to exhibit an example for the rest of the roster.
Johnson went on to elaborate in more detail about Braun’s issues. Apparently, these problems have kept Strowman from getting to the next level in WWE as he continues to misstep backstage and cause an issue for himself.
“One of the things I heard from multiple people and we’re talking 4 different people was that there are times where Strowman is negligent when it comes to showing up on time. He has a reputation at times for leaving a little early and sometimes makes mistakes in terms of etiquette in the backstage scene and the locker room and is sometimes as one person put it, ‘His own worst enemy’ and ‘His worst advocate.’”
“They will be high on him and just when he gets to the point where you would think the next step would be putting him into the centerpiece position for the company something happens and he makes some kind of misstep backstage and people within management kind of cool on him and they take a step back.”
