#2 Royal Rumble removal

Yet another Brock Lesnar vs. Braun Strowman match at the 2019 Royal Rumble was not exactly what WWE fans wanted, but it still made little sense to take the former Wyatt Family member’s title opportunity away.

He was due a rematch after being screwed out of the Crown Jewel match, so Stephanie McMahon agreed to let him face Lesnar at the Royal Rumble, just as long as he could defeat Baron Corbin at TLC.

Strowman did just that, making the Rumble title match build-up last 11 weeks, and then he was hastily removed from the match in a five-minute segment on Raw after he damaged Vince McMahon’s limousine.

I mean, talk about a momentum-killer! Granted, fans were happy that Finn Balor was given the chance to face Lesnar instead, but Strowman’s 11-week storyline was made to feel completely meaningless!
