WWE's Braun Strowman says his character is very similar to the Incredible Hulk.
The towering superstar, often described as a monster among men, is probably one of the most intimidating wrestlers around. And he's probably onto something.
As a character, Strowman is always one frustration away from throwing a massive tantrum and then nothing is safe. Speaking in an interview with Texarkana Gazette (h/t 411Mania), he summed it up perfectly.
“Braun Strowman is basically the Incredible Hulk in real life," he explained. "He means well and tries to do as well as possible but every now and again his temper gets the better of him and he just smashes everything in sight.”
Braun also opened up on his personal life, revealing his favorite place to visit is the gym.
“I spend a lot of time in the gym," he said. "It’s my happy place, per se, my iron church. I go there to unwind and, you know, the iron is always truthful to you. It will let you know when you’re having a good day. It will tell you when you’re having a bad day. It will never lie to you.”
Already well on his way to being an accomplished wrestler, having won the Greatest Royal Rumble and Money in the Bank last year, as well as the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal this year, Braun says he's most proud of his accomplishments outside the ring.
“The things we do with charity, the kids, giving back to the community. That is, without a doubt, the greatest thing to me about being a WWE Superstar. It’s about walking into a children’s hospital and everyone’s face lighting up. They’re able to get lost in the moment watching his character, and this motivates him on the tough days. Those smiles are what keeps me going.”
