I think they should be booking Braun in hardcore, street, cage matches. etc. would make him so much more watchable

He didn´t tap. (at least that´s his story).
But it doesn´t matter, he´s the new Big Show, he´ll shift alignment 20 times a year, lose to everyone and still be considered a threat when it matters. Why? Because he´s the closest thing WWE has to a true Giant these days, and a monster (no pun) can be built up as a credible opponent in a month, compared to small guys who need a long series of decisive wins and a "redemption" storyline to build them back up.
And considering Big Show´s career, being the next Big Show isn´t bad.. He´s worth around $20 million.

Well not surprised. Guy was a joke for a while, you got a guy tipping over ambulances and trucks but losing to a single F5 and every big match he's been in. They were never serious about him even though he's a big guy.

Well he wasn't doing much before he got randomly inserted into the Universal title match against Goldberg in replace of Roman. He wouldn't have made it to Mania if Roman was there. He did do a horrendous job as champion. His promos weren't consistent and missed too much tv time, much like The Fiend . And now he's working a program with Keith Lee. That's a good spot for him.

he was gaining his momentum back by beating Dabba Kato but tapping out clean makes that take a nose dive, even if it is to Roman.

What's so bad about Braun tapping out to a Guillotine? Roman is at his most peak performance he's ever been, Braun also got a thrashing with chair shots to make a point too it's not like Braun can't recover from getting worked over by the Top guy on SD if not the company.

Exactly.

-Braun lost to the top guy of WWE. Everyone is going to lose to Roman right now. Not like it was to someone like Ricochet or Apollo Crews.

-It was by submission. It is better to get caught in to a submission rather than losing by getting pinned.

-This was the same Braun Strowman that lost to both Lesnar and Reigns in the past when all 3 were on RAW and yet they (finally) eventually put the title on him this year. Even allowing him to beat Goldberg in 5 minutes.

-Bray Wyatt/The Fiend and Roman Reigns are the only two people that have defeated Braun Strowman this year and the matches with Wyatt mostly were not regular matches.

The problem is that people react on their emotions in the moment rather than looking back and observing the whole thing.

I love the reactions here, the WWE machine still manages to brain wash some people to the point where they think some people like Braun or Nakamura or Ziggler or or or are terrible because they get fucking bad dogshit booking. Go watch the mainevent of Summerlsam 2017 and remember that Braun is a wasted mega star. What a fucking shame...

I honestly dont think this holds any weight in modern WWE. I mean in theory losing to the top guy does someone no harm, he's the top guy, the World Champ. The best person to lose too.

But how many people every recovered from being Cena's whipping boy?

Just the way WWE operates thesedays, losses to the top guys are just an indicator that, that person doesn't matter. Miz spent 2-3 years endlessly jobbing to Cena and The Shield guys. The top group of guys in WWE and now he's a comedy jobber who never wins anything ever.
