Braun Strowman made his return during WWE Monday Night Raw as he interrupted a #1 Contendership Fatal Four Way Match that saw Alpha Academy (Chad Gable & Otis) vs. Los Lotharios (Angel & Humberto) vs. The New Day (Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods) vs. The Street Profits (Angelo Dawkins & Montez Ford).
Strowman took out Street Profits, Alpha Academy and Los Lotharios and a bunch of the security members. The segment ended with Strowman hitting his finisher Dawkins through the announcer's table.
Pwinsider.com reports that Strowman will be a regular on the SmackDown brand going forward and be presented as a babyface.
WWE confirmed shortly after his return that he would appear on Friday’s episode of SmackDown. Strowman took to his Twitter account to comment on his return and noted that he’s missed the fans while away from the company:
Strowman was let go by WWE last year as part of company budget cuts under Vince McMahon and worked on the independent scene as well as for the Control Your Narrative independent promotion.
