Braun Strowman is on fire and it looks like his career is just getting started from the look of things. He’s poised for a huge push and it might only be a matter of time before he finds himself firmly on the top of the card.
In the February 2018 edition of Pro Wrestling Illustrated, Braun Strowman gave a massive hour-long interview to the famous wrestling magazine. He discussed many subjects about his career so far and only illustrated the humble and humorous human being behind the Monster Among Men.
When Braun first made it to the main roster he emerged as one of the biggest surprises Bray Wyatt’s been able to pull out of his lantern of tricks so far. But Strowman has obviously seen his greatest success after he stopped following the buzzards.
“No, I would never, never think that was holding me back,” Strowman said when asked if The Wyatt Family ever held him back, “Being with the Wyatt Family is what got me to where I am. Let’s be honest. When I debuted, that was the eighth time I had ever been in front of people. And, like you said, the people criticized me when I first debuted. But what did they expect?”
“It was the eighth time I’d ever wrestled. It was a ‘let’s see what’s going to happen’ think. It’s all trial and error. That’s the thing I said about learning in this business. Every time you go out, it’s an opportunity to learn something new. Every time I go out and work I try to figure something else out to make my game better. If my work now compared to where I was doesn’t attest to my work ethic, I don’t know what does.”
It’s refreshing to know that no matter how far Braun Strowman’s career takes him, he’ll always look back at his time in the Wyatt Family fondly. After all, the first time we ever saw the Monster Among Men he was wearing a black sheep mask and that’s a hard image to forget. It’s also kind of cool that Strowman probably doesn’t mind the fact fans might remember him that way either.
