Rarely in the history of Pro Wrestling have we seen large athletes make athletic feats that we see smaller athletes perform. Yet, in WWE, there are those who believe that he can pull off a Moonsault when people aren't expecting it.
We are talking about Braun Strowman, a powerful WWE athlete who gave a long interview to Shakiel Mahjouri of CBS Sports, talking about his future and also about how people see him.
Backstage details on Braun Strowman
During his interview, Braun Strowman also spoke of the legacy left by the big names (in the sense of large size, ed) towards him: "At the end of the day, a lot comes out of the question" who could I fight if I could fight anyone of all times?”, and it's the same answer every time: Andre The Giant.
Andre The Giant is sports entertainment, he's the reason this industry is what it is, and he's famous around the world and made this industry global. When talking about WWE, you can't mention this company without saying Andre The Giant.
From him, to Big Show, Kane, Undertaker, Mark Henry, all these other giant men that have come and gone, I'm one of the very few of a dying breed. They have given me a legacy that I am proud of but find burdensome. In my mind, I am carrying on a fading tradition and legacy.
As much as this makes my heart ache from the stereotype of being this older boy that I've been given throughout my life, defeating opponents to fuel my fire, there's more to it though. I look like this big scary, imposing monster, but at the end of the day, I'm this passionate, caring, loving human being.
I want to be able to not only portray that, the monster side of things, but I want to show the world that there is more to it than meets the eye, not judge a book by its cover. Not just with big people, but with all walks of life.
Some people are quick that when they take a look at someone, they automatically have this stereotypical opinion of what this person is going to be. I love the opportunity to break these stereotypes and show the world that there is so much more to me than meets the eye.
Entertainment-wise, I love being able to go out there and do stuff like a big man that nobody's ever seen before. I don't pat myself on the back very often, but there's no one else like me on earth. I firmly believe that, if there were, they would have found them by now." Finally, on the Moonsault question: "I'm always joking, I can do a moonsault, it's not a problem, but it's not a question of being able to do one, it's a question of doing it at the right time."
