WWE announced the first ever dumpster match to be contested by Braun Strowman and Kalisto on this week’s "Monday Night Raw." The stipulation involving a dumpster was inserted following a segment on last week’s show where a rampaging Strowman dumped the former United States champion to a garbage bin backstage.

Dumpster match on RAW

In his Twitter post, RAW general manager Kurt Angle accepted a proposal from Kalisto about fighting ‘the Monster Among Men’ in a dumpster match. WWE hasn’t released the nature and rules of the match, but it could be similar to a casket match, only that the object involved is a dumpster, not a coffin.

Strowman has been on a tear the past two weeks, as he dismantled Roman Reigns in a brutal backstage ambush on April 10 episode and then ran amok again backstage the following week, where Kalisto and ‘the Golden Truth’ feel victim to him. Big Show tried to stop the former Wyatt Family member by challenging him to a singles match in the main event, but Braun’s momentum grew even bigger when he caused a ring implosion after super-flexing Show from the top rope.

WWE wants to use Strowman’s dominant streak as a momentum builder heading into a title showdown with Wwe Universal Champion Brock Lesnar. But before that blockbuster match to happen, Strowman needs to score an emphatic win against Reigns at WWE Payback on April 30.

According to wrestling scribes, WWE plans to add a stipulation to the Reings-Strowman match to keep Braun’s dominance going and protect Roman from suffering a momentum-breaking loss via pin. As everybody knows by now, Roman is penciled for a WWE Universal title showdown with Lesnar at Wrestlemania 34 in New Orleans.

Busier Champion

Lesnar, who conquered Goldberg at Wrestlemania 33 for his first reign as WWE Universal champion, is expected to have a busier schedule this year with feuds vs. Strowman and Reigns set. Lesnar’s decision to quit MMA for good might also help in his decision to appear on more dates than he ever had the past 2-3 years.

Forbes wrestling writer Blake Oestreicher stressed that it is a priority for WWE to keep the Universal Champion on WWE programming as much as possible to maintain the interest among the fans.

Cageside Seats reported that Brock would hold the Universal title until the Wrestlemania season when he’s expected to feud with the company’s top dog, Roman Reigns. For now, WWE is focused on the forthcoming titular match-up between Lesnar and Strowman, which will happen in the lead-up to SummerSlam 2017.
