Braun Strowman’s character has seen a lot of ups and downs since he started his singles career and he has gone from being an unstoppable monster to comedic relief.
During a recent interview with NotSam Wrestling podcast, the Monster Among Men talked about this transformation and revealed an interesting story of him storming into a production meeting.
According to Strowman, he was upset with the way his character was being handled and due to it he stormed into a meeting Vince McMahon was taking earlier this year:
I was like, ‘Vince, what is going on? I’m miserable.’ And he talked me off a ledge. He was like, ‘Look, big man, I want you for the long haul. It doesn’t matter what you’re doing right now. I care about what you’re doing ten years from now. I’ve invested in you; you’re one of my guys. Don’t worry. You’re fine.’ And just hearing that, coming from that man … I dunno … legitimately I walked into the production meeting one day and I was like, ‘I’ve had enough.’ I was just mad about everything.
Though Mr. McMahon handled the situation very calmly and the Boss had an open conversation with the former NXT Star for almost 45 minutes, even though Raw was going on air in 2 hours:
He kicked everybody out of the production meeting — like two hours before Raw was about to start, the show wasn’t even done — and talked to me for forty-five minutes, heart-to-heart, man-to-man conversation and opened my eyes to the picture of like ‘wow, why am I worrying about this?’ Vince doesn’t get the credit that is due to him. And if he hears this, he’s gonna get pissed off that I’m saying his name and putting him over.
