Before he became The Monster of All Monsters in WWE, Braun Strowman was just like any other die-hard wrestling fan. In an exclusive interview, he opened up about his teenage years and a little crush he had on a WWE legend.

Trish Stratus, the iconic WWE star who ruled the ring from 2000 to 2006, winning the Women’s Championship a whopping seven times during that era, was the object of Strowman’s affection back in the day. He spilled the beans in an interview with Sportskeeda Wrestling‘s Riju Dasgupta:

“That’s a tough one. There’s a lot. Probably Trish Stratus when I was in high school, like so many other young boys.”

Ah, puppy love in the world of wrestling! Trish Stratus, who was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2013, certainly left an impression on the young Strowman.


And as if that wasn’t enough, in the video accompanying the interview, Strowman also shared what sets his long-time friend Bray Wyatt apart from the rest of the WWE roster. You can check out the interview below.
