I personally love what I've seen from him so far, his look fits the Wyatt family really well, and he is booked as an absolute monster. As long as he is kept in the Wyatt family and they don't try and push him as a singles guy I'm happy as I really like Bray Wyatt as a character and it makes him seem way more threatening having such a powerful ally at his disposal, but on his own, I imagine he will just be boring as fuck.

He should not have debuted on the main roster. The man is still very green. I can't understand why they came up with the name Braun Strowman. His name should have been Rambo Duke. Far more marketable of a name and it rolls off the tongue well for chanting in large crowds. They should have booked him with all brawn and very little brain. Like a tough Idiot Savant. Perhaps his interests are fighting and weight lifting, or strength and nutrition. Meat head basically.

Ziggler is one of my least favorite wrestlers, but that is just absolutely awful.

I am not okay, he should not get the match and actually improve his skills (if he'll ever improve)

They still need to build him. Not this way Taker/Strowman at Wrestlemania. That's dumb. When well build, he could be the next giant of WWE replacing Big Show, Kane, etc. when they retire.

I really don't care for him, but it appears that WWE really likes him.

The man's got a great ass.

Fuck WWE. It sucks, and I like watching it.

AJ Styles - Dean Ambrose - Cesaro - Kevin Owens - Bray Wyatt - Sasha Banks - Brock Lesnar - Asuka - Natalya - The New Day

Re: What are peoples opinions on Braun Strowman?

Ok - here is what I think about Strowman..

He is big, he is ugly and in those respects he fits in good with the Wyatt family.

He may make it one day, but honestly, he is more likely not to make it. He is far, far, far too green. Even with the Wyatt's as cover it is hard for anyone to carry him to a good match. He was brought to the main roster waaaaayyyyy too early...

And that is a shame. He has the size, he has certain "it", but then so did Kalhi. He is probably making decent money now - but whoever was behind bringing up to the main roster early did him NO favors.

If he had spend more time in NXT (he was in house shows in FL there for about a year but was kept off tv) he would have been better off.

Right now the best thing they can do for him is basically what the did with Ultimate Warrior. Put him in singles matches in as many house shows as they can against someone that can teach him what to do and enforce a few lessons when he doesn't (or refuses).

That is basically what Brock did. I saw a thread here about the hard shot Brock gave him in the Rumble. That shot from Brock was a potato. It was a potato because Strowman was screwing up. Think of it as Brock's way of saying "I've tried to be nice - now get with the program!"..

He has the perfect look for an intimidating big guy wrestler from the 80's/90's, but other than that he's just incredibly bland and he doesn't really offer much.

Re: What are peoples opinions on Braun Strowman?

I like him. Of course because of his size this forum will hate him. But he's a good monster and I'm looking forward to his match with Taker, hopefully he goes over aswell.

Boring and uninteresting. Luke Harper is the best Wyatt other than Bray.
