Braun Strowman Says Vince McMahon "Talked Him Off A Ledge" Earlier This Year

The towering Braun Strowman has revealed that WWE chairman Vince McMahon helped him turn things around when he was feeling frustrated with his status within the company earlier this year.

"The Monster Among Men" seemed like he was going by unnoticed as it was expected that he would have been deeply involved in storylines involving the Universal title. And he has admitted being in a dark place earlier this year.

However, he credits McMahon with bringing him back, claiming that the WWE chief might be angry with him for making such a revelation.

“I got to a point where I got really really frustrated with everything that was going on," he said on the Notsam podcast during a recent interview (per Pro Wrestling Sheet's Ryan Satin). "I called Vince and I was like, ‘Vince, what is going on? I’m miserable.’ And he talked me off a ledge. He was like, ‘Look, big man, I want you for the long haul. It doesn’t matter what you’re doing right now. I care about what you’re doing ten years from now. I’ve invested in you, you’re one of my guys. Don’t worry. You’re fine.’

"And just hearing that, coming from that man … I dunno … legitimately I walked into the production meeting one day and I was like, ‘I’ve had enough.’ I was just mad about everything. He kicked everybody out of the production meeting — like two hours before Raw was about to start, the show wasn’t even done — and talked to me for forty-five minutes, heart-to-heart, man-to-man conversation and opened my eyes to the picture of like ‘wow, why am I worrying about this?’

"Vince doesn’t get the credit that is due to him. And if he hears this, he’s gonna get pissed off that I’m saying his name and putting him over.”

McMahon didn't survive this long in such a tough business by not knowing how to reassure disgruntled employees. Strowman seems to be over his concerns, considering what he said recently, and who knows what the future holds now? He's now a tag team champ on Raw and could have a go at Seth Rollins for his title soon.
