Braun Strowman is a mountain of a man that has nearly been on the main roster for a year now, but he has barely uttered a word on screen.
As perhaps the biggest monster of them all in the Wyatt Family, the 32-year-old has remained silent but deadly. The former strongman has now gone out on his own after the other three members were drafted to Smackdown LIVE and he has been crushing local enhancement talent for the past few weeks on Raw.
However, an appearance on Stone Cold Steve Austin's podcast this week gave the world their first true insight into the 6'8" goliath's personality and he revealed how the WWE got a hold of him.

"Mark Henry is who turned the company on to me," Strowman revealed. "Mark and I got to be good friends after I did the Arnold - it was my third ever strongman contest - I did the Arnold in 2010, and I met Mark there for the first time and I've been a big fan through his wrestling career, strength feats and everything like that and we got to talking.
"Mark put Canyon Ceman on to me and said 'Hey, you need to watch this guy. He's not like all the other strongman,' because I took pleasure in going out there, hamming it up and getting the crowd involved whereas a lot of guys went out there like 'I put this up and I put this down'.
"The louder the people got, the stronger I got," Strowman continued. "The adrenaline gets going then I'm having fun, they're having fun...I think that's one of the big things that drew the WWE to me is seeing the fact that I enjoy going out and entertaining and I am, basically, an attention whore."
Strowman undoubtedly has star potential and a larger-than-life presence. The WWE appear intent on letting his monster gimmick develop without the aid of a microphone, but his podcast appearance with Austin showed he certainly has the chops for the business when the time comes.
