Braun Strowman was in a feud with the WWE Champion when WWE released him

Right before WWE released him, Strowman was in a feud with WWE Champion Bobby Lashley and former WWE Champion Drew McIntyre.

Bobby Lashley, Drew McIntyre, and Braun Strowman were in a triple threat match at WrestleMania Backlash. Even though Lashley retained the title, McIntyre and Strowman put up a brilliant show for the WWE Universe.

Prior to that, The Monster Among Men was in a storyline with Shane McMahon. In fact, the company booked them for WrestleMania in a steel cage match.

While the WWE Universe complained about Strowman having to work with a watered-down Shane, the company allayed some fears by putting Strowman over.

Moreover, in the steel cage match, Strowman showed a magnificent feat of strength. He tore apart the cage, and held on to McMahon, refusing to let him escape.

Overall, it was an exciting match that showed the WWE Universe exactly what Braun Strowman was capable of.

Strowman could head towards any promotion he likes after serving the non-compete clause. As of now, he has not revealed which company he would like to work with, but it’s possible AEW is definitely in the running!
