I don't think he's this wonderful immaculate talent, but ffs, his booking defies common sense. How is this fucking hoss coming up short every single time, how is it, that he can't win anything when it counts, when there's no aura or mystique around a guy that physically imposing, you have severe creative issues WWE. Seth Rollins, with his boring ass, has effectively haulted Braun's momentum, a guy like Bret Hart, who could actually work, would have made it make sense, while Seth Rollins just got the better of Braun fair and square, with more of that stupid finisher fest format, i am so done with that shit, it needs to go, but i digress, Braun might very well be the most misused big man of all time, may i remind you what his signature Wrestlemania Moment has been so far? Oh, Nicholasmania is running wild, that's so memorable, sure.
And no Roman Reigns did not bury him, Reigns beat him that one time because Strowman missed a top rope splash, Rollins SURVIVED a top rope splash, which is intelligence insulting in and of itself, and beat him shortly thereafter, Seth Rollins is the black plague of Wrestling, case closed, Black n Brave Academy, more like Black Plague Academy.

Braun dosen''t have the drive to become a big time star in the WWE.

His quote
"The powers that be aren't ready for [me to be Universal Champion].One of the biggest things is that I'm running out of opponents; I've beat everybody. Where we're at right now, we're trying to get some other guys more established because, let's be for real, not everybody can match up to what I've done and what I'm capable of doing.Honestly, as well, I don't feel like where I'm at with my character [gives him reason to] need a title."

If you don't want to be the top dog, you never will be. This is the problem with hiring people who didn't care for wrestling before they were signed. I don't see him ever reaching Big Show / Kane levels of stardom either. Both guys did everything better than Braun and did it at a time where there was mega stars to work with.

To be fair the roster is stacked with guys who are lifelong Wrestling fans and they're all just happy to be there and have no ambition.

Historically its been the guys who didn't give a shit about Pro Wrestling before they became a Pro Wrestler that work the hardest to become Stars, guys like Goldberg and Lesnar. Because they weren't just happy to be there, they wanted to make money.

It's been trash since late 2017/early 2018... I guess you can blame my boy Kane for putting him in the garbage truck <img src="http://www.wrestlingforum.com/images/smilies/roflmao.gif" border="0" alt="" title="ROFLMAO" class="inlineimg" />
I love Kane, Kane is that dude, one of the most selfless dudes in the history of the biz.

When has he ever being booked seriously? or should have been taken seriously? just a so called Giant...puppet for Vinnie Mac to play with and nothing more. Once Vinnie Mac has no more use for his Giant.. HE will be totally forgotten about.. If not totally erased.

What do people see in him?

He just reminds me of Rowan. Big, bumbling guy with little wrestling ability.

Never rated him.

Braun was incredibly misbooked. There was a time a year or two ago where he was insanely over and rightfully so. He got squashed in a fast match with Lesnar and never got "it" back. There's huge talent and marketing with him.

They have made him look like a geek so many times. Losing to Seth clean, getting attacked by The Fiend and not ever retaliating and forgetting it by the next week, and losing to some boxer most wrestling fans don't give a shit about.

Braun is a glad-handing yes man just like Seth. He'll do just about ANYTHING Vince demands he does like a good little drone. The Moxley's and Pac's of the world who give a fuck aren't in WWE anymore.

What's up with people digging out old threads lately?

As for Braun, it was discussed numerous times. Nothing changed. He's a jobber to the stars. He is the Big Show in that sense, but then again... Big Show was at least multiple time world champion. Braun is gonna receive more chances, no doubt, but he could've been so hot, and they've stopped his momentum time and time again. As we know - they do it deliberately.
