Braun Strowman Speaks about HIs Problems
"I was one, pretty much a newborn baby. We were traveling back to my family's house in Wisconsin from my dad's baseball tournament somewhere near Chicago," Strowman began.
"As we were driving back, a tractor-trailer driver fell asleep and ran my parents off the highway. They went down to the bank. A trophy flew back and hit my mom in the head and put her in a coma. She was in a coma for three months”.
Strowman then spoke about his personal life. He wasn’t a law-abiding citizen during his teenage years. "Unfortunately, a lot of lessons I learned about in life, I learned the hard way. I started hanging out with a group of people that were not necessarily good," he shared.
"I started getting into drugs, and drinking, and skipping school. I mean, I'm like 13-years-old at this point. Being around people, you know, you get caught up in the peer pressure and stuff [so] you can fit in. I've never told anyone this, but when I was like, 11-years-old, I got caught breaking into houses.
As much as that part sucked and I wish I could take it back, it also grew me to be the man that I am today." Strowman spoke about his breakup next. He also gave credit to Vince McMahon and stated that Vince helped him get out of that state.
"You know, it was a culmination of things going on in my life. It was the beginning of last year - I went through a really bad breakup, and my personal life was just a mess," Braun Strowman antagonized. "With being a WWE Superstar, it's really hard to balance the road life and your personal life.
I think that was a reason why my relationship didn't work out. I [also] got to a point where I felt like I wasn't important at work, so I had no escape. My mind and everything was all over the place; I was by myself...
I was so mentally hard on myself in my personal life that I started letting it affect my business life in the grand scheme of things, when I have the most amazing job on Earth.
