• “I was thinking about killing myself a couple of times” – Braun Strowman On Being Frustrated In WWE
The new episode of WWE Chronicle, which is set to air tonight on the WWE Network, will feature a close look at former Universal Champion Braun Strowman.
We noted before that he got very pissed when Vince McMahon told him he wasn’t ready to become World Champion.
In a new video clip from the episode, The Monster Among Men revealed he had suicidal thoughts due to his bad booking in WWE at one point.
“I got to the point where I was on the verge of I had enough. I kind of busted in on Vince one day in a meeting and I was like ‘I need to talk to you’ and he kicked everybody out of the production meeting and he sat down and talked to me. Not like boss to employee but like man to man, almost like a father-son talk thing.
I’m very thankful to have a relationship with him like that because I might not even be here. I don’t even like talking about this out loud but I was thinking about killing myself a couple of times. That I got to that point, I should have talked to somebody sooner. I never knew how much he cared about me. I thought I was just a number in a system. That day he made me realize that I’m more important than a number I can’t thank him enough for doing that.”
