It seems like the month of April is pretty special for Braun Strowman, as he makes history every year. The ‘Monster Among Men’ won the Raw Tag Team Championships with Nicholas at WrestleMania 34 on April 8, 2018. Not just that, he also won the 50-Man Greatest Royal Rumble later that month.

These aren’t Strowman’s only big victories that came in April. He won the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal and the Universal Championship at WrestleMania 35 and 36 respectively. Fast forward another year, and Mr. Strowman has made history again!

The ‘Strowman Express’ recently achieved a rare feat in WWE this past Monday Night on Raw. According to WWE Stats and Info on Twitter, Braun Strowman became the first man in history to compete in televised Handicap, Tag Team, and Singles Matches. And hey, when we say history, we mean WWE, WCW, and ECW history!

Strowman achieving this feat comes as no surprise. The man is an absolute beast and has been unstoppable since putting away Shane McMahon at WrestleMania. This week, too, his excitement knew no bounds as he was laser focused to getting in the ring and letting his opponents ‘Get These Hands!’

What happened this week is Strowman and McIntyre were scheduled for a tag team match against Mace and T-Bar. However, Strowman and McIntyre exchanged a few words ahead of their match. This led to Strowman asking McIntyre to stay back as he took on both men in a Handicap match.

Unfortunately, the match ended in a Disqualification after Mace and T-Bar double teamed to contain the ‘Monster.’ Drew McIntyre came to the save, like Strowman did last week, and the tag team match was finally underway. Sadly, McIntyre hit Strowman with a clothesline in the closing moments, allowing Mace and T-Bar to pick the count-out victory.

Braun Strowman was not happy about Drew McIntyre hitting him and costing the match. The ‘Monster Among Men’ retaliated by hitting a Running Powerslam on the ‘Scottish Warrior’ and screamed at him for not following his lead.

The miscommunication and action in the closing moments of the Tag Team match wasn’t going to be the end of things. The ‘Scottish Warrior’ demanded a one on one match against Braun Strowman to WWE Official Adam Pearce, which he happily gave. However, just like Drew, Braun too, persuaded Pearce to add a stipulation!


Adam Pearce added that if Strowman defeats McIntyre, the WWE Championship match at WrestleMania BackLash would become a Triple Threat. Surprisingly, Strowman won, and this meant he would be the third man vying for Bobby Lashley‘s championship at WrestleMania BackLash.

April is definitely a lucky month for Strowman. He’s been on a roll this year too. But will he carry April’s momentum into May? Guess we’ll find out in the weeks to come.
