Raw Superstar Braun Strowman recently appeared on Booker T’s Heated Conversations podcast, where he explained who he refers to as his ‘wrestling dad.’

Strowman first explained how hard he has worked to improve over the few years he has been on WWE’s main roster:

“My whole life, from everything that I have ever gotten in my life I have worked hard for it, and have earned it, I have taken it, I believe that anything in life when you work hard for it and you achieve it there’s no greater feeling, but when someone gives you something you don’t appreciate it as much, and you take it for granted, but when you put your heart and soul into it and it pays back to you, there is nothing more gratifying in this world.”

Strowman reveals who he refers to as his ‘wrestling dad’:

“It’s humbling, it really is. The big matches I had against The Big Show last year in an almost passing of the torch with that, and him taking me under my wing. We have a joke where I call The Big Show my ‘Wrestling Dad,’ because he treats me like a son. When I do something dumb he whacks me over the head and tells me not to do it again. Same thing with Undertaker and Kane; where with Kane I have been almost working with him for an entire year on the house shows and just listening to these guys stories and things they have done. These guys have done everything there is to do within this industry, and they are a fountain of knowledge, so anything I can do to pick their brains and talk and put a match together with, they are special because I know there will come a day when it’ll be my job to do the same with other talents coming in.”

Finally, Strowman confirms that there is more to his character than just being a big guy:

“It was a little bit to get used to. I have always kind of wanted to be the center of attention, and now WWE has kind of given me the platform to basically be a peacock and spread my feathers and have the world see what I am capable of doing that I am not just some big, clumsy guy stumbling over a wall [Shockmaster]. I am intelligent, and I want to show the world that I want to represent big guys all around the world that we are more than just ‘big guys.'”
