Braun Strowman’s return to WWE was an emotional experience
After more than a year away from WWE, Braun Strowman returned to the September 5 edition of Raw.
He may not have been at the top of fans’ wishlist of the people they hoped Triple H would bring back when he took over the creative and talented relationships Strowman gives WWE a needed threat in the upper scene. of the mid-card and the main event. And getting a call to come back to the one company he said he’d always wanted to fight for meant a lot to Braun.
As he told Corey Graves and Vic Joseph on this week after the bell podcast:
“Even though I don’t want to admit it because I’m supposed to be this big, giant, tough monster, I had to swallow my emotions. It was really, really hard to stay in character. I heard that roar, I heard the place peeling off. Look, I just gave myself goosebumps thinking about it. I’m home…
“I cried when I came back through the curtain. Once I got away from everyone, I was finally able to absorb it and let it in.
We’re having fun with ole Girthy McBigPants here on the World Wide Web, and his catches often aren’t great! But he’s been open about his mental health journey, and being honest about how a huge night in his career hit him is pretty cool, too.
Away from WWE, Strowman dabbled in a few freelance appearances, working under his real name (Adam Scherr) and as “The Titan.” It was also to be the cornerstone of EC3’s Control Your Narrative promotion. But honestly, he’s never felt good anywhere other than WWE. Now we don’t have to see him try. As Braun says, he is at home.
What will he do once he completes the tag team powerbombing? We will see.
