Strowman credits Stephanie McMahon and Paul Levesque for what they’ve done so far. 

Four months have passed since Stephanie McMahon took on the role of co-CEO of WWE and Paul ‘Triple H’ Levesque took over as the creative lead. 

Talents such as Bray Wyatt, Dakota Kai, Tegan Nox, Hit Row (Top Dolla, B-Fab & Ashante ‘Thee’ Adonis), Johnny Gargano, Candice LeRae and Braun Strowman have been brought back as a part of the new regime. 

As Strowman was making the media rounds to promote Elimination Chamber in February, he spoke to Toronto Sun. Strowman spoke highly of what Stephanie and Triple H have done so far in their roles. 

I think it’s awesome. It’s always evolving. I always had a great time with Vince when he was in charge. He always led the steam for the motion of what WWE is. I have a great relationship with Steph and H and they’re such amazing people and they have such a passion for the business and the industry. The results – improved TV ratings, fan approval and a general sense of optimism surrounding the company inside and out – speak for themselves. You can see with the little Easter eggs hidden here and there, I think they’re evolving the show to be even more fan-oriented. We’re putting products on the TV and I’ve heard it time and time again with me being back from my friends and others saying things like, ‘Hey, I had a friend over who’s not a wrestling fan and we turned it on and so and so was on and they did this’ and all of a sudden, now we have a new fan hooked. At the end of the day, that’s what it’s all about. It’s about drawing new eyes in, new demographics. WWE is the top of the mountain when it comes to sports entertainment and Stephanie and H are doing such an amazing job with the young talent that we have in the locker room, portraying these storylines along and just putting out a great product and it’s showing in views and everything else across the board. I couldn’t be happier to be back at this time, helping drive this bus into the future.

Strowman would add that any opportunity he gets in this current run, he’s going to run with it and do whatever he can to become the best big man to ‘ever do this’. 

Any opportunity that I’m given with this company to go out there and represent, I’m going to take life by the horn and I’m going to wrestle that bull and do whatever I need to do to just continue to lay myself in the history books as the best big man to ever do this. 

On SmackDown, Strowman has been involved on-screen with Imperium (GUNTHER, Giovanni Vinci & Ludwig Kaiser). The trio cost Strowman his match in the World Cup tournament which was ultimately won by Ricochet.
