4-Shinsuke Nakamura Wins Back The IC Title
Where does Braun go if he beats Shinsuke Nakamura, Cesaro and Sami Zayn three-on-one at Elimination Chamber? Who would his next challenger be at WrestleMania 36? Bray Wyatt is removed due to his feud with John Cena, Daniel Bryan will be fighting Sheamus, and someone like ‘King’ Corbin just seems naff.
That’s why Nakamura needs to win back “his” title over the weekend. Great babyface or not, Strowman would have a reason due to the handicap condition, and there’s always opportunity for the manipulative Zayn to announce some “little print” to the agreement that Braun didn’t know. That’d let the heels use protection, and give the big man another explanation.
Strowman needs a bigger WrestleMania moment this year. Winning the IC strap for a second time against Shinsuke gets the most sense.
