WWE Rumors: Possible Plan For Braun Strowman’s MITB Cash-In

Published

Braun Strowman Get These Hands

In case you missed it, ‘The Monster Among Men’ Braun Strowman emerged victorious last night at WWE’s Money In The Bank pay-per-view, climbing the ladder in the evening’s main event to procure the Men’s Money In The Bank briefcase and earn himself an opportunity at the Universal Championship at any time over the next year. Braun’s win has been met with a little bit of criticism, but also questions on how his future cash-in could play out and who the champion may be when does decide to pull the trigger.

According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, Strowman may be cashing in at SummerSlam on August 19th, where it’s believed that Brock Lesnar will be defending the Universal Title against his WrestleMania 34 and Greatest Royal Rumble opponent, Roman Reigns. Previously, Meltzer had reported that Lesnar was not confirmed for any WWE dates (which you can read here), including SummerSlam, however it still looks like Brock vs. Roman is still in fact the plan. At this time, nothing has been confirmed and it should be noted that this is still just speculation.

EA’s Take: Dude…Meltzer flip-flops more than some overpriced footwear from Abercrombie & Fitch. I never bought that Reigns vs. Lesnar wasn’t the plan for SummerSlam and quite frankly, Braun cashing in there makes the most sense. The crowd in Brooklyn will unquestionably be displeased with yet another clash between ‘The Beast Incarnate’ and ‘The Big Dog’. So personally, I’d love to see a scheduled cash-in like we saw with Rob Van Dam back in 2006. If you don’t remember, RVD won Money In The Bank at WrestleMania 22, then later announced he would be taking his opportunity at the ECW One Night Stand pay-per-view where he eventually defeated John Cena for his one and only WWE Championship reign. A scheduled cash-in would fit with Braun’s character much more, in my opinion. Just think about it. He’s a monster and doesn’t need to take advantage of a weakened champion. So I’d play that angle up and turn this Reigns/Lesnar SummerSlam match into a Triple Threat.

News to start out your week! Commentary on WrestleMania To Get Stone Cold? Alexa Bliss Returns To The Ring, Gronk To WWE? and more!

Is WrestleMania Getting Stone Cold?

WrestleMania is often the time many legends of wrestling’s past return to WWE for the weekend festivities. According to PWInsider, WWE is looking at having arguably their biggest star in history involved with WrestleMania, Stone Cold Steve Austin. Austin has not been on WWE TV since the RAW 25th Anniversary show in January 2018.

Jason’s Take

To me, and many others, the card and storylines leading up to the pay per view have seemed the weakest they have been overall in years. Bringing in a few big names may help spark more interest.

Alexa Bliss Returns To Ring At Live Event

This past week, I discussed Alexa Bliss and her absence from the ring. It had been rumored that Bliss had been injured, however that no longer seems to be the case as Bliss returned to in ring action Friday night for WWE’s Trenton, NJ live event.

Jason’s Take

So there it is, don’t believe everything you read on the internet. Looks like Alexa Bliss wasn’t injured after all. or the injury was minor.

Rob Gronkowski Retires From NFL

I know what you are thinking, why are you posting NFL news in a wrestling news article? Bare with me. New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski retired today. The timing of this is interesting, as WrestleMania is two Sunday’s away. Also, let me point out to you what HHH had said to Sports Illustrated last month:

“Gronk has mentioned WWE before, that he loves it and said had so much fun doing it. I don’t know if it’s something he’d be seriously interested in, but that’s how the conversation started with Ronda Rousey, too. Certainly, the door is open for him at WWE.”

Jason’s Take

I am purely speculating here. But, when you break it down, Gronk to the WWE makes perfect sense.

Huge Match For SmackDown This Week

After all the backlash the WWE has received regarding Kurt Angle’s retirement match opponent, it looks like they are doing something right with Angle for a change. It was announced today that Kurt Angle will be taking on AJ Styles on this weeks episode of SmackDown Live. This is being announced as Kurt Angle’s final match on SmackDown Live.

Jason’s Take

Now why couldn’t something like this be Angle’s retirement match at WrestleMania? I know Styles isn’t as big of name as John Cena, but the match would be a hell of a lot better with him in it than Baron Corbin.

Welcome everyone to Flaming Pearl Oracles!  This will be the article discussing future events and match results through out Asia.

Before I begin, know that Asian and many in the Pacific do not provide results like you are accustomed to.  First, the promotions do not provide complete results, rather only one or two matches.  Secondly, unless you watch the matches (a few promotions are on ‘Nothing Else on TV’ livestream) you will not be provided details regarding how a match took place.

Finally, many of their articles are more advertisement than substance.  I will work to get as much information as I can to provide you the fullest account possible.
