Former WWE Universal Champion Braun Strowman recently revealed how he is being able to inspire fans. Braun who is been with WWE since 2014 is portrayed like a giant like man. His gimmick, attire, by every means he looks like a giant.
But this is not how he is in real life. He is a very gentle and kind man in real life. This happens to fans almost all the times. Fans often mistake wrestlers with their gimmick. In most cases, wrestlers are completely different from their actual gimmick. Braun Strowman is no different from this either.
Braun Strowman On Inspiring Fans
Braun Strowman has revealed it previously that he has been a big Bully during his childhood. This is why Braun always fight against the bully. Similar to Titus, who was also a Bully during his childhood, who is now fighting his best against the bully.
With the cases of bullying increasing in America day by day it is difficult to get rid of Bully completely. In this difficult time, people like Braun Strowman and Titus O’Neil can of course make a difference. In fact, they are making a difference.
During his interview with TMZ Sports, Braun revealed how he is inspiring fans and how much it means to him;
“Plus, with seeing how much I’ve changed in the last year or so, what it’s done for other people. The messages I get from fans, friends, family, strangers from all around the world that send me messages, ‘Hey, I’ve seen your fitness goal. It’s made me change the way I eat, made me get back in the gym, I’ve lost 100 pounds, I’ve lost 200 pounds.’ All this stuff. I have moms, dads message me, ‘I’ve changed the way I cook for my family, for my kids. We eat at home more.
“We eat more homecooked meals versus eating out,’ and it’s really cool to see that trickle effect goes down when in the grand scheme of things, I never in a million years thought I’d mean this much to people around the world. I’m a simple country boy from a tiny little town in North Carolina that tripped and fell into the coolest job in the world.”
“Braun Strowman on how it’s humbling for him: “It’s humbling, it’s really humbling. To see the transformation pictures that people send me it’s just, wow. Then to hear the stories of how not only are they physically healthier, but they’re mentally healthier.
“That’s been the biggest thing I’ve noticed because I used to struggle and I still struggle with body dysmorphia. I struggled with bullying growing up because I was a chubby little kid and then I grew to this gigantic mongoloid of a human being that I am and I’m still judged for it because people look at me and they go, ‘oh, this big meathead.’ Which, I don’t mind meathead, I take that as a compliment because I work really hard to make this look like this. But at the same time, don’t judge a book by its cover.
“I’m very articulate. I feel like I’m kind of intelligent and you know, I like to read, I like to learn, I like to explore and it’s more than just fee-fi-fo-fum I’m going to grind your bones to make my bread. It’s really neat to break stereotypes, push through these walls that have been put up for these toxic masculinity men and really show the world how compassionate and how loving that we really are. But just don’t piss us off because if you make us angry, you probably won’t like it.”
