8. Vince Russo Says He Would Have Booked Braun Strowman To Win The 2017 Royal Rumble Match

During a recent edition of Vince Russo’s “The Brand” podcast, Russo talked about the 2017 Royal Rumble match and how he would have booked Braun Strowman to win the Royal Rumble match. Below is what he said:

“I thought they did a good job in making Braun Strowman look good. He took out 7 guys, made him look strong and did a real good job in building Strowman. For me, I would have had Strowman win the thing, but I know there are reasons why that didn’t happen, and a lot of reasons are that Braun Strowman is not ready, or if he were to have a match with Owens or Cena is not marquee, but my point is, if he is not ready then why is he even there?

If he’s not ready then why put him in the spot to begin with? Once you get put in that spot be ready, so if that were me, Strowman would have been the guy I would have put over. If you are putting Strowman over in a match with Lesnar, Goldberg and Taker, he is now somebody.

I promise you Strowman did not go over because in their opinions he was not ready. If he’s not ready don’t put him in that spot to begin with. He was that guy they wanted to protect and did a good job.”
