After weeks of build, Braun Strowman’s tag team partner for his Raw Tag Team Championship match against The Bar was some kid.
By now we know some kid was referee John Cone’s son Nicholas. He tagged into the match once but was nothing more than a distraction to Cesaro, who Braun pinned a short-time later. It was workaround for having The Monster Among Men single-handedly beat The Bar while creating a “WrestleMania Moment” WWE hoped would be buzzed about online and in offices after the show.
It certainly got the wrestling world fired up.
We have to cover the storyline takes first. Cesaro and Sheamus were understandably not pleased...
As for the rest of the locker room and the business, reactions were mostly in the form of jokes...

What the fuck have any of us indie idiots ever done?
We’ll leave the last word to the king however...

There’s your WrestleMania 60 match, Vince (we know you’ll still be running things).
