On Sunday, The Monster Among Men was cruelly thrown in the back of ambulance, which was then deliberately backed up into a stationary production truck, and worst still, nobody seems to be interested in bringing his attacker to justice.
But Braun is a trooper - you can tell from his special camo pants, which he got for his birthday last year - and what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.
Actually, pretty much everything seems to make Braun stronger: from beating four Local Competitors™ at the same time to ripping up Chris Jericho's scarf, the 33-year-old continues to rise up the WWE food chain.
It's surely only a matter of time before he gets his hands on the company's biggest prize - even if plans for a SummerSlam confrontation with Brock Lesnar appear, disappointingly, to have been put on ice.
As always, though, there are one or two things that WWE would rather we didn't remember about their new star - and we're here to make sure you don't forget about them.
