Strowman had no clue what was going to happen.
This past April at WrestleMania 34 "The Monster Among Men" Braun Strowman had an interesting situation in front of him as he earned himself an opportunity to challenge Sheamus and Cesaro for the RAW Tag Team Championships. Strowman in storyline wanted to go into the championship match alone but RAW GM Kurt Angle told Strowman that if he did not choose a partner Strowman would not be able to challenge for the titles.
WrestleMania 34 came and once it was time for the RAW Tag Team Titles match, Strowman went into the crowd and selected a young child from the audience who turned out to be the son of WWE referee John Cone, Nicholas. Nicholas and Braun Strowman went on to capture the RAW Tag Team Championships making Nicholas the youngest WWE title holder in the company's history. The following day on RAW the duo had to relinquish their titles due to Nicholas still being in school.
As Braun Strowman was doing PR work on behalf of WWE in India, Strowman spoke with SportsKeeda and during the interview Strowman revealed that he was unaware of who his tag team partner was going to be until he arrived at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
"Oh man, that was a huge surprise to me." Strowman said. "I didn't know who my partner was going to be until I got there that day and the boss told me to pick somebody out of the crowd. He just happened to be the lucky one and he caught my eye. I didn't necessarily think I needed to have a partner but the boss was adamant I had to have one. So, I made a young fan's dream come true. I brought him out there and we put a lickin' on The Bar and won the titles from them."
Braun Strowman has since went on to capture the Money In The Bank contract and Strowman will be defending that very contract in a match against Kevin Owens at the "Biggest Party Of The Summer."
