One of the names of the many released this 2021 by the WWE that caused the most sensation online and among the insiders, was certainly that of Braun Strowman, giant athlete of the McMahon family rings, who in the last year had managed to also triumph in one of the editions of Wrestlemania, number 36, where he had managed to beat Bill Goldberg, becoming a WWE world champion for the first time in his life, winning the Universal Championship.
After a stratospheric year, with high-caliber feuds against Roman Reigns, the evil The Fiend and many other top-level athletes, Strowman declined, just like Bray Wyatt, with WWE always ousting them. more from the federation's card that counts, up to releasing them, amidst the incredulous comments of WWE Universe fans, who could not in the least imagine such a moment would ever come this year, despite the pandemic.

Before leaving WWE, in fact, Strowman was much thinner than his debut, completely shaved and with a very long beard. Right from the start, after his dismissal, Braun however wanted to make some changes to his physique, immediately showing two nipple piercings and a shortened beard noticeable.
