A recently returned WWE star is set to head to Friday Night SmackDown and become the blue brand’s top babyface.
On the September 5th edition of Monday Night Raw Adam Scherr, known as Braun Strowman returned to WWE for the first time since being released in WWE 2021.
Strowman made an instant impact, appearing in the shape of his life to a huge ovation from the crowd in attendance.
On the show Strowman went back to basics. He arrived, demolished anyone who got in his way and left. Those in his way on this occasion were the Street Profits, Alpha Academy, the New Day and Los Lotharios.
Although Strowman made his big return on Monday night Raw, it now appears that he will be heading to Friday Night SmackDown, and staying there on a more permanent basis. Writing in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer reported that the plan appears to be for the star to become SmackDown’s top babyface.
“Strowman (Adam Scherr, 39) returned this week on Raw, but will be on Smackdown on 9/9 and is scheduled to be a babyface on the Smackdown brand. It does give them another person they could headline a PPV with against Reigns. Strowman on the Smackdown brand can be the monster on that show, although really categorizing people as Raw or Smackdown, and while they are considered that and listed internally as that, the reality is the stars are frequently on both shows.
Strowman being back notes that he can be a monster based on size without Omos in the picture given Omos is probably nine inches taller. But Omos hasn’t been used of late. Strowman came back lighter and more muscular than in his prior stint with the company.”
On the September 9th edition of Friday Night SmackDown will see the fallout from Clash At The Castle continue. Drew McIntyre will surely be out for blood as he looks to exact some revenge on Roman Reigns and The Bloodline after they made sure he left the United Kingdom without the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.
