Braun Strowman's Career

Strowman did multiple jobs before he kicked off his WWE career. When he was attending community college, he worked as a doorman and a mechanic. Although he was dedicated to his work, the minimum paying jobs were barely enough to support him. During that time, he also played semi-professional football for Hickory Hornets.

He attended a scouting program for the NFL, however, he didn't work for long here. Strowman also competed in a few strongman competitions before starting a professional career in wrestling. 

He signed a contract with the professional wrestling promotion WWE in early 2013 and was sent to the WWE performance center in Florida to train until 201 5. He started his WWE career with NXT live events. Then, he appeared in the main event where he defeated an unidentified wrestler.

In 2014, he made an appearance as one of Adam Rose's Rosebuds in his Exotic Express gimmick. He made his professional wrestling debut on December 19, 2014, when he took to the ring against Chad Gable and defeated him. 

Later, he was transferred to Raw where he had a gimmick as a member of the Wyatt family. He defeated the team of Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns and Chris Jericho. After this, he remained part of the Wyatt family for a long time. Strowman entered into Raw by attacking Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns as the newest member of the  Wyatt family. He made his first WWE pay-per-view event appearance when he fought at Night of Champions on September 20, 2015. At the event, the Wyatt family defeated Ambrose, Reigns and Chris Jericho.

In 2016, he was drafted to Raw while Bray Wyatt and Erick Rowan were drafted to SmackDown. From this moment, Strowman began his solo career in wrestling. The injury was legitimate but was minor and the recovery time was actually shorter than given by the WWE. This was done to give an element of surprise when Strowman would return 2 months early. He then joined the Miz's feud and failed in his pursuit for the title.

After this, he went on to compete in the tag team championship and was allowed to compete in the Wrestlemania 34 as long as he found a tag team partner. He chose a WWE planted 10-year-old fan at the event and single-handedly defeated Cesaro and Sheamus making the fan the youngest ever to win any sort of WWE title.  Most recently in 2018, Strowman defeated Baron Corbin in a TLC match which earned him a Universal Championship match against Brock Lesnar at the Royal Rumble.
