Well… far be it from me to brag, but a few weeks ago, I predicted that at Wrestlemania, Bobby Lashley would be returning to the WWE as Braun Strowman’s mystery tag team partner against The Bar. Now obviously that didn’t happen. However, the next night on Raw, Bobby Lashley did return, and this week on Raw, he was announced as Braun Strowman’s partner in a match against Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn. So I wasn’t wrong… just delayed!
So where does this leave The Monster Among Men? Was it a one night only deal or is he now paired with Bobby Lashley for a run? Personally I hope the latter. Strowman has beaten everyone that the Raw roster has to offer that is at the top of the card. If he starts feuding with someone again it should be for the Universal Championship. However he has already been there fairly recently and WWE are obsessed with giving the gold to Roman Reigns. So I think a soft reset as a tag competitor for him is a good thing.
Lashley is newly returning and pairing him with Strowman, who is easily the most over star the WWE has on any brand, can only be a good thing for him. I think it will be great to help get Lashley over and Raw needs more tag teams in the division. Ideally I would like their pairing to last 6 – 12 months and then I want to see Strowman turn heel and turn on Lashley. Nothing surprising there, but Strowman can absorb a heel turn and it will help elevate Lashley to the top of the card where he should be.
