The Miz & John Morrison get beat up by Braun Strowman, might get a Universal title match out of it


WWE booking at its finest here, folks.

On Friday Night SmackDown last week, Otis recruited Braun Strowman for his tag team match against The Miz & John Morrison and, to the surprise of no one, Mr. Money in the Bank and the Universal champion won said match without much issue. In something of a surprise, they went back to the well this week, only without Otis directly involved.

That led us to a Strowman vs. Miz match on SmackDown this week that, again unsurprisingly, saw the champ easily claim victory.

After, Morrison challenged Strowman to a 2-on-1 handicap match for the Universal championship at Backlash. His reasoning? “You beat us in a tag match, and you beat Miz in a singles match, but you can’t beat us both in a handicap match!”

Strowman accepted the challenge.

Commentary spoke of it like it needed to be approved, so it’s not official just yet but it sure appears to be the plan.
