WWE superstar Roman Reigns isn’t always popular with professional wrestling fans, but a “biggest” fan has emerged. That man has actually has worked with him in the ring on numerous occasions. That man is none other than the monstrous superstar Braun Strowman. To date, Strowman has destroyed Reigns in multiple matches including an Ambulance Match at the Great Balls of Fire 2017 pay-per-view and at other events. The two most recently battled it out in a Last Man Standing match on the Monday Night Raw program in Toronto, Canada, with “The Submission Machine” Samoa Joe intervening to put Reigns down, allowing Strowman to win. Still, it added to the catalog of entertaining matches that the two stars have put on during their rivalry.
Braun Strowman and Roman Reigns started a rivalry this year that has seen the two superstars bring the best out of each other. They have faced off 4 times this year: in Fastlane, Payback, Great Balls Of Fire, and the latest edition of RAW
Roman Reigns was the first and only person so far to ever pin Braun Strowman in WWE. However, Strowman was victorious in the remaining 3 bouts, 2 of them being clean victories.
The rivalry between the two RAW superstars was acclaimed also because of how heated and intense things would get. In April, just two weeks removed of WrestleMania 33, Braun Strowman viciously attacked Roman Reigns backstage, even shoving him on a stretcher from an elevated platform.
Roman Reigns, on the other hand, got even more brutal as he locked Strowman in the back of an Ambulance and rammed it into a wall, effectively blurring the face/heel dynamic between the two.
Strowman has become incredibly popular in the WWE Universe after his feud with Roman Reigns, as he’s now a fan favourite superstar.
Strowman mentions in his comments, he’s been the lucky recipient of a long running feud with “The Big Dog” over the past year.
“It doesn’t matter who he’s with, he tears the place down. And lately, it’s been me.”
“That’s the thing people don’t get is the work ethic behind Roman Reigns…Whether it’s due to stubbornness or just heart, he keeps getting back up.”
Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman are set to get in the ring for a big event once again at the WWE SummerSlam 2017 pay-per-view. During that event, they’ll be one-half of a Fatal 4-Way match for Brock Lesnar’s Universal Championship. Also competing will be Samoa Joe making for what could be a great match. As of this report, neither Reigns nor Strowman, are favorites to win, although Roman has fluctuated with the current champion, Lesnar.
