10 Things You Didn't Know About Braun Strowman

Braun Strowman 1

Braun Strowman is one of the most surprising success stories of recent years in WWE.

When he arrived on the main roster the night after SummerSlam 2015 many responded with complete apathy as another immobile big man made 'his presence felt' on the WWE Universe. Strowman could barely wrestle and seemed like a throwback to Vince McMahon's body-obsessed days.

Fast forward some 18 months and Strowman has evolved into one of the most fascinating presences on WWE television, a human wrecking-ball that the promotion continues to book effectively. Strowman may not have a big singles match ahead of him at WrestleMania 33, but the man will be an overwhelming favourite for the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal. You can already picture him standing next to that trophy.

What do we know about the man behind the monster? Who is he and where does he come from? As Strowman continues to improve and evolve so does our understanding and knowledge about Adam Scherr. Here are 10 things you may not have known about The Abominable Strowman.


Born in the middle of Wales in the middle of the 1980's, John can't quite remember when he started watching wrestling but he has a terrible feeling that Dino Bravo was involved. Now living in Prague, John spends most of his time trying to work out how Tomohiro Ishii still stands upright. His favourite wrestler of all time is Dean Malenko, but really it is Repo Man. He is the author of 'An Illustrated History of Slavic Misery', the best book about the Slavic people that you haven't yet read. You can get that and others from www.poshlostbooks.com.
