The heat on Braun Strowman is very real.
Braun Strowman gained criticism from several of his colleagues after WWE Crown Jewel when he targeted "grocery baggers" and "flippy wrestlers," with numerous talent speaking out. According to Fightful Select, Strowman has actually been on his best behavior backstage since returning to WWE, and had been easy to deal with, but "social media Braun" has been another story.
WWE management is aware of it and at least one that we spoke to thought that it was an immature approach by Strowman. It was reiterated to us that it's not a part of an ongoing or upcoming angle, and likely won't be turned into one.
However, Strowman could eventually be ribbed or referenced on screen or on commentary for his stance. One wrestler who claims "they'll never do a flip in their life," said that the tweets shouldn't have happened, saying "we need them, and they need us. Wrestling is everything. There's very little truly right and wrong. He didn't come up in the business doing the things that a lot of those people did, so he probably doesn't understand."
