Braun Strowman has commented on being released and then re-hired by WWE, including what he felt he accomplished during his first stint with the company.
On an appearance on the After the Bell podcast, Strowman described to host Corey Graves weighing his options during his time away from WWE as well as viewing the release as a break.
Braun Strowman said:
“I honestly needed a break. Nine years with the company at that point basically in the driver’s seat of a Ferrari doing 200 miles an hour for nine years straight, everything’s just blowing by you, tunnel vision.
“Now, I have this opportunity to step outside the bubble of the business and go ‘holy s**t, I have done a lot of stuff.’
“In five and a half years, I’ve literally beaten everyone there is to beat in WWE, I’ve won every title except the US Championship, I’ve main event’ed every pay-per-view, I’ve sold out every building on this Earth, you name them, I’ve been in the ring with them.”
The Monster of all Monsters has made a monsterous return to WWE, appearing on both Raw and SmackDown and offering to lay hands on anyone who gets in his path!
WWE has announced Strowman’s first in-ring return however, set for next week on WWE SmackDown versus Otis of the Alpha Academy.
Elsewhere in the interview, Strowman talked about enjoying some time away from WWE as well as how he felt having been released by the company.
Braun Strowman hasn’t had any matches in WWE in 2022 and therefore has a perfect win/loss record!
