• “Stand behind what you say, be a man and back it up” – Baron Corbin To Braun Strowman After Recent Tweets
After WWE Officials were pleased with how Braun Strowman vs. Omos went at Crown Jewel 2022, Strowman began bragging about it on Twitter.
Below is what he tweeted:
“Holy hell @TheGiantOmos can you believe we got 47 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ and reminded the people that no one cares about all these floppy floppers. Giants and Monster > flippy flipper.”
When he received backlash from other wrestlers, Strowman replied:
“Yo yo all my brothers and sisters in the locker room no matter where you came from. I have mad respect. We have all worked very hard to be where we are. And all are here for a reason. Take a joke iwc. Y’all come at me none stop and the second I fire back y’all melt.”
Strowman then called himself the greatest big man in pro-wrestling:
“Aight I’m going to sleep on this flight. Just let me remind you I am the greatest big man there ever has been there ever is and there ever will be!!!!!!!! If you at me you prove the point. Good night to all my loyal fans and the rest welll GFYS 💋💋💋💋 monster out”
Baron Corbin addressed Strowman’s comments on WWE’s After The Bell podcast. Below is what the former King Of The Ring said:
“I think, yeah, do you but whatever it is, stand behind it (referring to Strowman’s tweets). If you cower and back down after, then you didn’t really mean it, you were doing it for clout, doing it for show, doing it for social media. I don’t do anything for social media and I also don’t go out and label myself whatever it is.
If you’re gonna go out and tweet, ‘I’m the greatest big man this business has ever seen,’ if you’re saying it and you’re the one that’s having to put the title, nobody else is saying it about you, then you’re full of crap and so if you’re gonna go out there and you’re gonna bash little guys, look, I have some respect for guys like Rey Mysterio who have done unbelievable things at his size and his stature and he is iconic and there will be a lot of people that will come along in the future that will get compared to him and wanna be him but there will never be another Rey Mysterio.
There is a place for those guys like we talked about. It may not be the main event but there is a place for them so if you’re gonna go out on social media and say those things and the minute people start firing back at you, you back down or you cower away or you try to say it was a joke, that’s when I get irritated.
Stand behind what you say, be a man and back it up and also, for me, I’m going out there, for 10 years now, I’ve irritated people and not cared how they felt.
My job is not to make anybody who watches what I do happy. That is not my job. For right now, Braun, that is his job. His job is to go out, get people excited, he’s on that side of the fence, he’s a ‘good guy’ if you will and so to go out and do that, I don’t understand it but you know, I think that you should take pride in being a big man and putting on a show like that but the minute you have to tell people how good you are and make up your own star rating, I’m out.”

• Old School WWF Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WWF Veteran Chainz (Real name: Brian Lee Harris) celebrates his 56th birthday today.
Known in other promotions like Smoky Mountain Wrestling and Extreme Championship Wrestling as “Prime Time” Brian Lee and “Bulldozer” Brian Lee, he is probably a lot more famous for his 1994 WWF stint, where he played the character of The Undertaker (imposter), when “The Million Dollar Man” brought in a FAKE Undertaker that looked almost exactly like the original one, Mark Calaway.
When Brian Lee returned to the World Wrestling Federation 3 years later in 1997, he was known as Chainz, a proud member of The Disciples of Apocalypse along with Crush, Skull & 8-Ball.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRIAN LEE!
