Braun Strowman is a main eventer now but when he first broke onto the WWE Universe’ radar he was a part of the Wyatt Family. He learned all he could there and by the time he branched out on his own with a new haircut and down one black sheep mask it was all business.
The Monster Among Men was recently interviewed by Pro Wrestling Illustrated where he was asked if being a member of the Wyatt Family ever held him back and he had the opposite to report.
“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.”
