Braun Strowman appeared on the “Say Less with Kaz, Lowkey and Rosy” podcast. During it, he revealed that he was supposed to beat Brock Lesnar for the Universal Title at the Crown Jewel 2018 event in Saudi Arabia.
“There was one time where we all thought a match was going — this was — man, f*ck it, I’m not working there anymore,” Kazeem said. “It was in Saudi [Crown Jewel 2018] and Braun [Strowman] was supposed to beat Brock [Lesnar]. This is right after Roman [Reigns] announced he had cancer, right? So, Brock and Braun was supposed to fight for the world title and we had a whole Monday Night Raw written with Braun Strowman as champion and then sike, Brock Lesnar wins and then as soon as Brock wins, we all had to go back into the office, rewrite the whole show.
“I just thought it was some sh*t where it’s just like oh, they’re just kind of keeping us on the D.L. [down low], whatever but I didn’t know they could change like [that].”
