Over the years, The Monster Among Men and The Tribal Chief have had several feuds. They’ve stepped inside the together more than once, and almost every time they put up an entertaining fight.

One of the last times Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman faced each other was at Payback 2020 during a triple threat match for the WWE Universal Championship.
