During a recent interview with TV Insider, Raw Superstar “The Monster Among Men” Braun Strowman talked about his most special match to date, working with Roman Reigns, being in the SummerSlam 2017 main event & more. Below are the highlights:
On facing The Big Show:
“That is one of my most special matches to date. To go out there and do what Big Show and I did together. I will go out on a limb and say you will never see anything like that again in this business. That’s because there are no more men like us in this business. We are the last of a dying breed. I’m keeping the big man alive in the business and evolving it into what you are seeing now with the Braun Strowman character. I showed the world a glimpse, because you guys have only seen a glimpse of what I’m capable of doing. It was a big moment for me going out there and having that kind of match with Big Show. Big Show has been very hands on with me. We have a joke around the locker room that he is my wrestling dad. I’ve been like his wrestling son. He has kind of taken me under his wing seeing that I want to keep the big man alive in the business.”
On possibly having the best rivalry of 2017 with Roman Reigns:
“You can’t take anything away from Roman Reigns. He gets the boos and cheers. People react to him. The man is a phenomenal athlete. He is one tough son of a bitch. I knock him down. He gets back up. I knock him down. He gets back up again. That’s it. This feud could last forever. The ambulance match, we pulled out all the stops. We do that every outing. Short of throwing each other into a volcano, I don’t know what else we can do.
Any time you can get a ‘W’ over Roman Reigns, you’re doing something right. Every time we go out there, Roman and I have something special. We tear the roof off the place. You can’t deny it. When we are on the card, we’re the match to see. It doesn’t who else is on it. We are going to be the main event no matter where we are. He will say that, too. Us together, there is no better pair on the red brand or the blue brand to go out there and putting on a show.”
On main eventing SummerSlam 2017 this Sunday night:
“Just to share the ring with guys like Brock, Joe and Reigns, they have all been doing this a lot longer than I have. They have been around the world and done it all. To be able to be in the main event of SummerSlam, about two years to the day when I debuted on Monday Night Raw.
If that doesn’t speak for itself. I don’t know what does. Everyone can look forward to me holding the Universal Championship over my head at the end of it.”
