It's not too often you see someone like Braun Strowman come in and completely dominate.
Mick Foley knows this. Speaking to NBC Sports, he talked about Braun Strowman and his rise in the last year as a dominant, strong force on Raw. He praised Strowman not only for his work but for the build WWE has put behind him. For being a three hour show, it can be tough to build someone up as a monster while also wrestling competitively on a weekly basis:
Well, the guys go out there and do their thing with the great matches they have and there’s a feeling that the fans respect that and any guy can win at any given time.
Believe me, it’s tough when you have to have good, competitive matches for three hours [every week]. It was much easier in the days of ‘WWE Superstars’ or before that with the wrestling I saw once or twice a week where a decent match every six weeks was considered a treat.
It’s really difficult to have dominant characters when they have to be competitive so often. When you have a chance to build someone like Braun in a different way, it really stands out.
Strowman has continued to be dominant, even in rare defeats. He looks to avenge one of these defeats when he challenges Brock Lesnar for the Universal title. That match, a triple threat bout involving Kane, will take place at the Royal Rumble on January 28 in Philadelphia.
