Braun Strowman was seen as a massive star given that he is a one-time Universal Champion, one-time Intercontinental Champion, and two-time Raw Tag Team Champion. His release from WWE back in June 201 baffled many. The Monster Among Monsters recently shared his feelings about his WWE release last year.

Strowman was one of many wrestlers who were released from the company as a result of budget cuts. After all, Strowman was raking in $1.2 million a year. He looked back on his career in a recent interview with the Toronto Sun where Strowman admitted that it was a very hard pill to swallow.

It was a very hard pill to swallow because at the end of the day, I realized that I was put on this Earth to be a WWE Superstar.

At first it was a big shock because it was like ‘Alright, what am I going to do now?’ I didn’t want to do anything else.


It was a nice opportunity to take a step back and appreciate what I had been blessed in life with and what I had done with this company in the first six years.

If you look back, you name it, I did it. I won every title except one. I main evented every pay-per-view, I wrestled everybody under the sun, and I sold out every building on this Earth.

And when you’re on the road every day in a different city, different country, different town, you kind of get blinders on and it’s just like driving on the autobahn at 200 miles an hour… you don’t realize what’s going on in life.

So it was an awesome opportunity in a bad (situation) to take a step back and realize how blessed I truly was.

The Monster Among Monsters also detailed how he used adversity to his advantage. Braun Strowman remarked that the period gave him the opportunity to concentrate on his personal life and other tasks. While out of the ring, Strowman collaborated on the launch of the Diskuss mental health app with Jonathan Kendrick, co-founder of the ROKiT Group of Companies, and John Paul DeJoria.

In September 2022, Strowman rejoined WWE under the new leadership of Triple H. The former Universal Champion is currently on the SmackDown brand, where the Strowman Express carries on. Keep an eye on Ringside News for more.
