WWE will sometimes make decisions and then immediately go back on them. This is something that seemingly happened with Braun Strowman.
The company quietly turned Braun Strowman into a babyface prior to the Survivor Series. This was done to enhance the storyline that they were telling up to the big November pay-per-view. Strowman appeared as a babyface as he told AJ Styles “you are not my captain.”
WWE has booked Braun Strowman to face Drew McIntyre at TLC. It doesn’t appear that they are still going that direction, but the company only has one match booked for TLC and that is it.
Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that they are very likely turning Braun Strowman back into a heel in order to make that match happen.
It will be interesting to see how WWE books Braun Strowman into the WWE Title match at TLC. He will very likely be a heel while making his way to that big December 20th WWE Championship encounter.
