During a recent interview with Fightful, former Universal Champion Braun Strowman talked about his release from WWE in 2021, which shocked the fans as he was a top star.

Below is what The Monster Among Men said:

“We talked a couple of times, and I enjoyed my time away. As much as I did, at first, it was a hard pill to swallow, but it was something I realized I needed because, at the time, I was just mentally going crazy, not just with WWE but with everything in life.

So, it was an opportunity to take a step back and truly realize how amazing it is to work here and how truly blessed my career has been. In the short amount of time of my first stint here, you name it, and I did it.

Money In The Bank, Universal Champion, Tag Team, Andre, Intercontinental, whatever PPV I main evented, whatever building I sold out. So having that opportunity to take a step back and go, ‘Wow. I got to do a lot of stuff’.

But at the same time, I hated being gone. I love this. I’ve said it time and time again, I truly believe I was put on this earth to do this and for this company. So it was good to be home.”

After Triple H became the Head of Creative in WWE, he brought Strowman back in September 2022.
