The ascent of Braun Strowman over the past year or so has been incredible. WWE brought the mammoth of a man in to act as the fourth member of the Wyatt Family. Strowman had very little in-ring experience and effectively was only introduced to the main roster to be Bray Wyatt's extremely intimidating right hand man.
During the summer of 2016 though The Monster Among Men was torn away from the Wyatts and drafted to Raw while the rest of them found themselves on SmackDown Live. Since then Strowman's career has gone from strength to strength and no one could have imagined the heights he has reached. Fans might not like it but a lot of that is down to his work with Roman Reigns.
One of the hottest rivalries of the year has been the one between Braun and The Big Dog, and in an interview with the UK's Metro Strowman explained why he and Reigns get along so well. "Roman and I are very similar in a lot of aspects regarding our work ethic and outlook on life", Strowman explained, "that’s been one of the reasons why we have such great chemistry and been able to go and do the things that we do."
Braun also said that both he and Roman are team players. The two of them are focused on improving the overall product while others can get wrapped up in what others think of them. He also admitted that if he makes a mistake Reigns isn't afraid to tell him that he "did something that sucks." Clearly the relationship between the two of them is as good as Strowman lets on as their chemistry in the ring is terrific and whenever WWE decides to revisit it fans will likely be on board.
Braun Strowman's ability to work with top guys as well as get along with them and be focused on improving the product is exactly why he is currently in the position he's in. The fans love him and clearly so does Vince McMahon. It's only a matter of time before Braun is Universal Champion, and it seems he may get another title shot at Royal Rumble next month.
