WWE Universal Champion Braun Strowman Admits He Would Like To Face "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt In A Cinematic Match If They Were Given The Opportunity
Will The Monster Among Men enter the Firefly Funhouse...
On night two of WrestleMania 36, "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt and John Cena went one on one in a Firefly Funhouse match. During the bout, Wyatt tormented the leader of the Cenation with his worst nightmares which allowed The Fiend to pick up the victory after Cena passed out to The Mandible Claw.
On night one of 'Mania, Wyatt's old protege Braun Strowman defeated Goldberg to win the Universal Championship. The two former brothers now look destined to face off at Money In The Bank as Bray confronted The Monster Among Men on last week's episode of Friday Night SmackDown.
The match might not be inside the squared circle, however. In a recent interview, Strowman was asked what he thought of the Boneyard and Firefly Funhouse matches at The Showcase Of The Immortals. The Universal Champion ultimately praised both contests and said "they were cinematic pieces of art." He added that if he could have an off-site bout of his own, he would choose The Fiend as his opponent.
Strowman said: "They were cinematic pieces of art. It was literally sports entertainment at its pinnacle. It was mind blowing watching the cinematics…the fights scenes, just the whole presence of it all…I’ve got goosebumps thinking about it right now. When I watch wrestling I don't watch it as an analytical wrestler trying to break it down and nitpick everything, I watch wrestling like I did when I was a teenager, when I was a child, I watch it to be entertained…and, dammit, it entertained me."
He later added: "As much as I hate it for him, because he isn't going to want to get these hands, it's my mentor, it's the man that made the monster, the man that turned into The Fiend, the one and only Bray Wyatt. His mind, his abilities, there is nothing else like it."
