The last episode of Monday Night Raw saw wrestler Braun Strowman as the great protagonist. After an initial segment on the show, he starred in the Main Event against Drew McIntyre and despite attempts by WWE Champion Bobby Lashley earned the chance and will take part in Wrestlemania Backlash in the Triple Threat Match against Drew McIntyre and Bobby Lashley for the WWE Championship.
This choice of the WWE has very intrigued the fans of the WWE Universe: there are those who believe that The Monster Among Us was put there only to suffer the winning pin from one between Lashley and Drew McIntyre (a good part) and there are those who he believes that WWE wants to give the former WWE Universal Champion a new chance instead.
What he did on Monday Night Raw will probably remain in the wrestling and especially WWE history books. The episode of Raw started with Strowman sending Drew McIntyre away and facing T-Bar and Mace in a Handicap Match, but in the end the duo got the better of them but allowed themselves to be disqualified.
Afterwards there was the return of Scottish Psychopath and so the WWE sanctioned a Tag Team Match between T-Bar and Mace against the two wrestlers. Finally, the Main Event between Drew McIntyre and Braun Strowman sanctioned the chance that the mighty wrestler then earned.
The WWE Stats and Information Twitter account did an incredible research regarding Braun Strowman's night on Raw and it was noted that the wrestler was the first star in WWE / WCW / ECW history to play on the same night in TV a single match, a Tag Team match and finally a Handicap Match.
A curious but comforting record for Braun Strowman who seems to have a great time in company and Wrestlemania Backlash will play their chances to become WWE Champion. Should he win at Backlash Strowman will have a new title to add to his resume and can finally be considered as a two-time world champion of Vince McMahon's company.
WWE announces a nostalgic episode of Smackdown!
Over the years, WWE has accustomed us to staging several important weekly episodes of its most popular shows, dedicated to the Superstars of the past or in any case to an idea and a type of wrestling that is now past.
The last episode of this type, which WWE wanted to stage from the ThunderDome, was the famous Raw Legends of January, with which WWE also wanted to stage the beginning of the challenge titled between Bill Goldberg and Drew McIntyre, when the Scotsman was still WWE Champion.
Apparently, this time Smackdown would be the brand that will return to take a dip in the past, given that WWE wanted to make an unclear but still very interesting announcement for next week and therefore for the next episode of the company's blue flag show.
. With a press release entrusted to an image during tonight's Friday Night Smackdown episode, where the most anticipated event was the main event between Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns, valid for the maximum title of the show, with Reigns obviously beating his opponent, getting him banned from Smackdown, WWE has announced that next Friday there will be an edition of the show that will return to the past.
At the moment no further details have been given regarding this special episode, nor have special appearances been announced for the evening, such as legends or other athletes, who have not been seen in the blue rings for some time.
The only thing that has been discussed since the very first minutes after the announcement, is that WWE could finally bring back the famous giant fist that dominated the titantron, at the entrance of the ramp leading to the ring.
For several years, many WWE fans have been asking the company to re-install the piece of scenography in that of Smackdown, both to better characterize Smackdown, and to return with the mind to the fantastic, most prosperous periods of the blue show, such as that of the beginning 2000s.
