The storyline with Alexa Bliss, Braun Strowman, and The Fiend took an exciting turn on last week’s episode of SmackDown. The Monster Among Men openly stated that he didn’t care about the former women’s champion, which effectively rendered The Fiend’s mind games completely useless.
However, does Braun Strowman take seriously the statement he made on SmackDown? Probably not, as he could be lying to add another twist to the story.
On the latest edition of Sportskeeda’s Dropkick DiSKussions podcast, Tom Colohue and Korey Gunz discussed the current angle of SmackDown.
Tom brought up Braun Strowman’s theory by lying about his feelings for Alexa Bliss in an attempt to encourage The Fiend to release Alexa Bliss. It makes sense from a story perspective, as The Fiend has been using Bliss to get inside Braun Strowman’s head.
Removing Alexa Bliss from the scene leaves Bray Wyatt without a vital bargaining chip. Tom said it could have been a standard negotiating tactic that was used to push the story.
In the next episodes it could be revealed that Braun Strowman does care about Alexa Bliss.
Should WWE focus on establishing the kayfabe relationship between Braun Strowman and Alexa Bliss?
Tom Colohue also criticized the lack of emphasis by WWE to truly establish the relationship and history between Alexa Bliss and Braun Strowman.
Kayfabe’s romance was teased a long time ago, and the aforementioned superstars were mostly pushed to be together in the mixed match challenge. Beyond the competition, WWE didn’t explore the angle, and Tom found the current situation between Bliss and Strowman a bit confusing.
Moving forward, Tom explained that he would like WWE to build on the relationship between Strowman and Bliss. He also noted that Fiend could also have a history with Bliss after SummerSlam, if WWE wishes to go down that path. He was teased on SmackDown when Alexa Bliss stroked The Fiend’s face, putting off Bray Wyatt’s alter ego.
Tom concluded by adding that Alexa Bliss could play an important role regarding the future of Bray Wyatt and Braun Strowman after SummerSlam.
What do you think? Braun Strowman is lying and will there be another twist in the story before the fight for the Universal Championship at SummerSlam?
