Braun Strowman has revealed that a recent heart-to-heart conversation with Vince McMahon has helped him with his frustrations with his creative direction in WWE.
So far in his WWE career, Strowman has always been a nearly man. He's been involved in the Universal Championship picture several times but has never managed to capture the title.
Earlier this year after the Royal Rumble, The Monster Among Men took out his frustration on Vince McMahon as he was unhappy with what was happening in his career.
However, during the confrontation, Vince gave Strowman a heart-to-heart conversation about his plans for him in the future, which calmed him down.
Strowman said during an interview with Sam Roberts on the latest episode of the Notsam Wrestling podcast, via Pro Wrestling Sheet: "I was like, ‘Vince, what is going on? I’m miserable.’ And he talked me off a ledge.

"He was like, ‘Look, big man, I want you for the long haul. It doesn’t matter what you’re doing right now. I care about what you’re doing ten years from now. I’ve invested in you, you’re one of my guys. Don’t worry. You’re fine.’
"And just hearing that, coming from that man … I dunno … legitimately I walked into the production meeting one day and I was like, ‘I’ve had enough.’ I was just mad about everything.
"He kicked everybody out of the production meeting — like two hours before Raw was about to start, the show wasn’t even done — and talked to me for forty-five minutes, heart-to-heart, man-to-man conversation and opened my eyes to the picture of like ‘wow, why am I worrying about this?’
"Vince doesn’t get the credit that is due to him. And if he hears this, he’s gonna get pissed off that I’m saying his name and putting him over."
The Monster Among Men may not have to wait much longer to get his next shot at the Universal Championship, as it could come next month.
It's being reported that Strowman will be the superstar that faces Seth Rollins for the Universal title at Clash of Champions on September 15.
Strowman and Rollins defeated The OC's Gallows and Anderson to win the Raw Tag Team titles earlier this week on Raw, but this is expected to be a short-term move before their team implodes to feud over the Universal title.News Now - Sport News
