Braun Strowman has been a hot topic in the pro wrestling world this week, as the former Universal Champion has been surprisingly released from his WWE contract. And in the meantime The Monster Among Men is taking advantage of being a free agent to tell some background of his long experience for the Stamford company.
Not only is Braun Strowman a former SmackDown all-time champion, as he feuded with some of WWE's most recognized champions and superstars during his time with the company, including Brock Lesnar. At the Royal Rumble in 2018, for example, Brock Lesnar defended his WWE Championship against Kane and Braun Strowman in an extremely heated Triple Threat Match, and at one point it seemed that things had heated up in the ring when Lesnar punched Strowman.
ahead. Strowman recently told talkSPORT about The Beast Incarnate's hard blow to the head, and revealed that after the match, when he and Brock returned backstage, they had a big laugh together. He said: "We laughed about it later.
It is what it is. We went backstage and I told him it was my fault. He said the same thing and we went on as if nothing had happened. We are both adults, we both knew what we were getting ourselves into and at the end of the day, we are both very dominant athletes.
Neither of us wanted to give up an inch, so in the end we both learned something from that situation." At the time there was a lot of talk about that story, for which Strowman was extremely criticized and even accused of lack of professionalism.
Obviously there is no proof from Lesnar that the matter had actually been resolved in such a friendly way, even if it is certainly true that the two have since had the opportunity to work together on several other occasions.
Braun Strowman, Lana and Aleister Black FIRED by WWE!
Layoffs in WWE seem to have no end in this 2021 and the Stamford federation, today, has again surprised the public around the world by announcing some unexpected and somewhat bizarre releases.
Although it was news this morning, the new layoffs include a list of Superstars we never thought we'd see outside WWE right now, especially as some of them had just started new storylines or were part of the latest edition of.
WrestleMania. The names of the fired wrestlers are very prominent and are: Braun Strowman, Aleister Black, Lana, Buddy Murphy, Ruby Riott, Santana Garrett. One of the names that surprises most of all and certainly that of Braun Strowman, former universal champion, intercontinental champion and couple champion, who since 2015 has been a stable presence on the main roster and who has recently taken part in a storyline with Shane McMahon which culminated at WrestleMania 37.
His last appearance dates back to WrestleMania Backlash, where he took part in a triple threat for the WWE Championship alongside Bobby Lashley and Drew McIntyre. Another name that will surely cause a lot of discussion is that of Aleister Black: the Dutch wrestler spent several months off the scene but had recently returned to SmackDown with a revitalized character and had recently started a feud with Big E.
Among others we find Lana, another Superstar on which the WWE has always staked a lot, both outside and inside the ring, and Buddy Murphy, who reached the apex of his career on the main roster as an adept of Seth Rollins, but who had long been struggling to find its place on the Friday night show.
Finally, Ruby Riott was also released, who was part of a tag team with Liv Morgan, and Santana Garrett, NXT athlete who had participated in the last Royal Rumble. As always, WWE wished the best for the future of all newly fired athletes.
