There have been some interesting news stories surrounding Braun Strowman over the past few years, but finally, The Monster Among Men was able to address these on a recent appearance on Chasing Glory with Lilian Garcia.
One interesting story came a few years ago when it was reported that Strowman had threatened to commit suicide because of how he was being booked by WWE.
The former Universal Champion was able to open up about these false claims where he revealed that the reality was the opposite.
“When I went to Vince to talk about some stuff I was having problems with, it really pissed me off that the dirt sheets tried to spin this whole thing when I talked about this in the documentary that I wanted to commit suicide because I was mad at how I was being booked in WWE and that’s the complete total opposite end of it.”
“WWE was my only thing positive I had in my life at that point. I was so mentally hard on myself with what was going on in my personal life that I started letting it affect my business life when in the grand scheme of things, I have the most amazing job on Earth.”
Strowman also revealed that he had struggled with depression for a large part of his career, but is reportedly in a much better place now.
“It was a culmination of things going on in my life. The worst part about it was the beginning of last year. I went through a really bad breakup. My personal life was a mess and being a WWE Superstar, it is really hard to balance the road life and your personal life and that’s part of the reason the relationship did not work out.”
“I got to a point where I felt like I wasn’t important at work, so I had no escape. My mind was all over the place and I was by myself.”
