You never know what Vince McMahon will book next, and sometimes neither does he. Plans can change on a dime in WWE nowadays, and the pandemic has added even more unpredictability to the situation.
While speaking with Bleacher Report, Braun Strowman brought up the constant changes backstage in WWE. He said that “people get sick” and then there are last minute changes. He then admitted to enjoying that kind of environment.
“The boys and girls in the back, we all work really, really hard,” he said. “It’s been a little chaotic because everything’s been all over [the place], and people get sick and things change last minute. And part of me enjoys that, I’m not going to lie.”
“This past Monday was a prime example. Everything was crazy because people got hurt, people were sick and stuff changes. All of a sudden, you’re in three matches in an hour and 10 minutes’ worth of a three-hour show. You’re freaking out, but when you get out there and get it done and hit a home run, it’s such a satisfying feeling.”
When it comes to drawing viewership, that’s another challenge. Strowman also went into how tough it is right now to draw television ratings since he hasn’t even had cable for a decade.
“It’s a tough time right now. It’s a challenge for everything that’s on television to try to draw live viewership. I’ll be honest, I haven’t even had cable in my house in the last decade. I keep up with our shows via our apps and social media.”
There are a lot of things going on in WWE. They must present the best show possible and also capture the viewership needed to keep going. All that must happen in the face of a pandemic. Braun Strowman will carry on with Vince McMahon and it sounds like he’s in it for the long haul.
