Even though he cherishes those moments of great strength, the behemoth wants to continue being a Superstar.

Braun Strowman had an incredible journey before joining WWE

Braun Strowman entered his first strongman competition in September 2009. In 2011, he earned his pro strongman card, making him the fastest any American has secured it. He could deadlift 905lb and squat 775lb at the prime of his strongman career.

The following year, Strowman entered the Arnold Amateur Strongman Competition and won. In 2014, he went to the Arnold Classic but finished last when he tore his bicep.

‘The Monster Among Men’s’ time with WWE

Mark Henry convinced Braun Strowman to try his luck in wrestling. The duo got to know each other when they participated at the same strongman competitions.

He made his WWE debut in August 2015 as a member of the Wyatt family in a feud against Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns. In 2016, the company split the faction, and Strowman went to Raw to begin his career as a singles Superstar.

He spent the year battling various Superstars but hit the jackpot when WWE booked him in a rivalry against Roman Reigns. This rivalry became one of the top ones for that year.

Regardless of who he fought, he committed to becoming the monster heel WWE wanted him to be. Whether it was against Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns, Brock Lesnar, or anybody else, Strowman ensured that he made an impact.
