SAN ANTONIO, TX — Last week, Braun Strowman used pure strength and a literal grappling hook to pull a piece of the backstage rigging down on Kane and Brock Lesnar. It was astounding even by Strowman’s standards, and it changed the entire complexion of the trio’s Universal Title Triple Threat Match in one swoop. And now, it’s gotten Strowman fired.
The Monster Among Men was in the middle of gloating over his complete obliteration of both the Universal Champion and The Devil’s Favorite Demon when Raw General Manager Kurt Angle arrived to reprimand Strowman by relieving him of his position as a Raw Superstar. The decision left the WWE Universe in an uproar, but Strowman took it far worse than the audience: After appearing to acquiesce to Angle’s wishes and heading to the backstage area peacefully, Strowman savaged the entire team of security guards that The Olympic Hero had hired to escort him from the building before marching away from the scene with very bad intentions on his mind.
