Kurt Angle recently spoke on who would win between Braun Strowman and Andre The Giant, and his answer might be surprising.
The WWE has always had a huge obsession with bigger guys, and it’s not always a bad thing. As we’ve seen guys like The Big Show, Andre The Giant, and The Undertaker, and the modern-day rendition of that is Braun Strowman, WWE knows how to book a big man. Strowman, in particular, has been a standout superstar. He’s athletic, he’s beloved by the crowd, and the WWE has booked him incredibly well, he could eventually go down as one of the best giants in WWE history. But how does he currently compare to those older guys?
Well, during a Q&A on Facebook, Kurt Angle, the current Raw GM who had run-ins with the Monster Among Men got asked the question: “During their prime, who would win a Last Man Standing match between Braun Strowman and Andre The Giant?” The Wrestling Machine answered; “That’s comparing apples and oranges. Honestly? Braun. Andre was amazing in the ring, but Braun is incredibly athletic for his size. I’d give the edge to Braun.”
This is going to create discussion on the topic, but it’s hard to argue with Angle here. Andre is an absolute legend in the business and was a trailblazer for giants in the WWE, but Braun Strowman is on another level right now. He’s had so many incredible moments in the ring, and constantly shows off his athleticism with the combination of such speed and agility, even throwing in several dropkicks and kip-ups, and that’s something few people of that size can do. It’s a match we would have loved to see during their prime, but unfortunately, that’s not the way the world works, and we’ve had to settle with Strowman battling legends like Kane, Mark Henry, and The Big Show.
So what do you guys think? Would you like to have seen this clash of titans? Who do you think would win? Is Braun ever going to match up to Andre’s legendary accomplishments? Let us know all your thoughts and ideas in the comments below.
