Braun Strowman is never short on words, especially when he is giving an interview or posts something on social media. Not all of these instances reflect well on him, and he’s been in the news recently as well for some unwanted statements about smaller ‘floppy flopper’ wrestlers.

The former WWE Universal Champion, who returned to WWE in September after being released in June last year, spoke to SHAK Wrestling this week and stated that he is ‘the last of a dying breed of pro wrestlers.’

“Andre the Giant is sports entertainment. He is the reason why this industry is what it is, and it’s world-renowned. It’s a global entity. When you talk about WWE, you cannot mention this company without saying Andre the Giant.

So from him to the Big Show to Kane to Undertaker to Mark Henry to all these other giant men that have come and gone in this business, I’m one of the very last few of a dying breed of these dinosaurs that I like to call it.

I’m carrying on a tradition and a legacy that is fading, and as much as that hurts my heart because of that exact same thing that you just talked about, the stereotype of being this bigger guy that I’ve had things handed to me in life or that I fee, fi, fo, fum my way through life, grinding up people’s kids to make my bread, there’s more to it than that.”

Whether Strowman’s comments are true or not will cause debate, but it can’t be argued that in an ever-changing pro wrestling landscape, he is a one-of-a-kind performer who should figure prominently in any card he finds himself in. What do you think? Let us know in the comments below.
