Braun Strowman’s WWE release last year came as a shock to fans, as he was a huge star back then. He eventually came back earlier this year, something that fans approved of. Braun Strowman is one of the biggest stars in WWE right now and is rightfully called The Monster Among Men. In fact, Strowman believes he is the last of a dying breed of pro wrestlers.

The Monster of Monsters has largely been booked as an unstoppable force in the company due to his size. Many fans have compared him to the likes of other big men in WWE, such as Mark Henry, The Big Show and others.

While speaking to SHAK Wrestling, Braun Strowman talked about his time in professional wrestling. Strowman stated that he is the last of a dying breed of pro wrestlers, in the same class as Andre The Giant and The Undertaker.

“A lot of it comes out of the question of, ‘Who could I wrestle if I could wrestle anyone of all time’, and it’s the same answer every time. It’s Andre the Giant. Andre the Giant is sports entertainment. He is the reason why this industry is what it is, and it’s world renowned. It’s a global entity. When you talk WWE, you cannot mention this company without saying Andre the Giant. So from him to the Big Show to Kane to Undertaker to Mark Henry to all these other giant men that have come and gone in this business, I’m one of the very last few of a dying breed of these dinosaurs that I like to call it.

So in my mind, I’m carrying on a tradition and a legacy that is fading, and as much as that hurts my heart because of that exact same thing that you just talked about, the stereotype of being this bigger guy that I’ve had things handed to me in life or that I fee, fi, fo, fum my way through life, grinding up people’s kids to make my bread, there’s more to it than that. I look like this big, imposing, scary monster, but at the end of the day, I’m a passionate, caring, loving, articulate human being, and I want to be able to not only portray the aspect of the monster side of things, but I want to show the world that there’s more than meets the eye. Don’t judge a book by its cover.”

Braun Strowman also believes he is the one to dethrone Roman Reigns. We will have to wait and see whether WWE will have something significant planned for Strowman in the future. Till then, only time will tell what will become of The Monster Among Monsters.
