WWE superstar Braun Strowman appeared in the broadcast booth for Fox Sports' coverage of the St. Louis Cardinals and Chicago Cubs game at Wrigley Field on Thursday, and we won't be forgetting it anytime soon.
Strowman sat down with the announce team of John Smoltz and Joe Davis to promote SmackDown's move to Fox Sports, beginning on Oct. 4. The Monster Among Men also talked about his baseball playing days as a youth - pointing out that his father was a star softball player as well.
But as Felix Upton of Ringside News pointed out here, Fox Sports committed a serious graphic botch that you can see below. They incorrectly pointed out that Strowman has won five championships in the WWE since he joined the company in 2014.

Strowman actually has two championships in WWE, both of them being Raw Tag Team title reigns. Upton speculates that Fox could have looked under the "Championships and accomplishments" category for Strowman's Wikipedia page.
There, you'll see the two Raw Tag Team Championship reigns, the 2018 Money in the Bank, the 50-man Greatest Royal Rumble in 2018, the 2019 Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal and the 2018 Year-End Award for Male Superstar of the Year. Those are five accomplishments, but not five titles.
Strowman has received a giant singles push since splitting from the Wyatt Family, but he hasn't gotten those hands on a WWE or Universal Championship yet. He lost to Seth Rollins at Clash of Champions, and the latter will next defend his title against Bray Wyatt.
It's obviously only a matter of time until Strowman wins more championships. He'll certainly get to five in short time, but Fox jumped ahead a little too early here. On the bright side, they're not the only ones guilty of recent graphic botches.
What's Next For Strowman?
With Bray Wyatt challenging Rollins next, it probably takes Strowman out of the main event scene on Raw for a while. Of course, a move to SmackDown in the upcoming draft might be in the works for Strowman. He hasn't been part of that roster since the brand split, and Strowman might receive better usage from Eric Bischoff. We'll just have to see what's next for The Monster Among Men, but hopefully it's something big. He's long overdue for a Universal or WWE title reign.
