As seen on this week’s episode of WWE Monday Night Raw in Detroit, MI at the Little Caesars Arena on the USA Network, Braun Strowman won a Battle Royal involving all of the tag teams that compete in the division on Raw.
As a result of this win, Strowman is the new #1 contender for the titles and will challenge Sheamus and Cesaro for them at WrestleMania 34. It remains to be seen if Strowman will have a partner for this match.
Dave Meltzer noted on the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio “that WWE Chairman Vince McMahon will make the final decision on Braun having a partner or not. There’s a chance that he may have already decided on the direction but he hasn’t told anyone that would be in the know as final plans are still up in the air.”
While it’s very popular right now that Strowman could have no partner I don’t see that happening. The WWE has invested to much time into the Bar and one man (no matter who it is) should defeat them. With that said I see two potential options to pair with Strowman, Elias or Big Show. This could be another great way to put Strowman over and give Big Show some important matches on the backside of his career.

WWE News: Finn Balor Returns To Action At Tonight’s Live Event
Finn Balor was back in action tonight at WWE Live in Bakersfield!
Ahead of tomorrow night’s TLC pay-per-view in San Jose, California, WWE’s RAW roster was in action last night with a Live Event in Nashville, Tennessee (see the results here) and noticeably absent was Finn Balor, who hasn’t been seen since he was sent home early from last weekend’s South American tour.
Earlier today, it was reported that Balor had yet to be cleared from an illness (find that story here), as a number of WWE Superstars had come down with what sounds like the cold or flu bug (check out that story here). As for Finn’s scheduled match at TLC tomorrow night, it was speculated to possibly be in jeopardy since he had yet to be cleared for any physical contact.
However, it looks like all systems are a go for Balor tomorrow night, as he returned to the ring this evening as WWE is live in Bakersfield, California for another RAW Live Event:
