The Monster Among Men has been a dominant force since debuting on the main roster a little more than two years ago. However, he didn’t break out of his shell until he was forced away from the Wyatt Family during the brand split. Since then, Braun Strowman has been more than the silent killer we saw wearing the black sheep mask.
He’s come a long way since then, getting over with the crowd through his amazing feats of strength and his hilarious yet intimidating catchphrases. Recently, Strowman was interviewed by Cape Town’s Channel 24 to promote an upcoming WWE house show in South Africa. He discussed what initially drew him to the world of professional wrestling and what it was like to play someone so vastly different on TV.
One of the biggest draws is the fact that I get to perform in front of millions of people. I love attention and when the spotlight is on me I have to take advantage of it. I’m meticulous about doing the same workouts over and over again. It takes out all the miscalcuated errors. I know what’s going to work for me.
I love taht I can portray someone that I’m not. I’m easy going, keep to myself and quiet like. It’s always a challenge to push myself, but I enjoy it. I spend my days in cars, buses and airplanse, so on my days off I like to get away from the city life and disappear into the woods.”
The WWE’s tour of South Africa will begin in April. Until then, the Monster Among Men will be preparing for Wrestlemania, and hopes to lock in a title match with Universal Champion Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania, should he win the Elimination Chamber next week.

Strowman has been getting a bit goofier with his recent promos and segments, bringing out the personality he has off camera. It will be interesting to see where this character goes the closer we get to Wrestlemania.
