Braun Strowman Injury Update, When Is WWE Superstar Returning Back?
Braun Strowman is an American professional wrestler currently signed to the WWE. He fights under the SmackDown brand and has earned himself the nickname of “Monster among Men”.
Braun is loved by WWE fans because of his scary persona in the ring. Coupled with his quirky personality outside the ring, his popularity comes as no surprise.
Braun Strowman’s Bio
Braun’s real name is Adam Scherr. He was born on 6 September 1983 in Sherrills Ford, North Carolina. His father Rick “Crusher” Scherr used to be a professional softball player and is still regarded as one of the greatest slow-pitch softball players of all time. His induction into the United States Specialty Sports Association (USSSA) hall of fame is a testament to his skill and contribution to the game.
Braun used to compete as a Strongman before he joined the WWE. He won the NAS US Amateur National Championships on 5 November 2011. This earned him the Strongman Corporation professional card and he participated in the 2012 Arnold Amateur Strongman Championships. He won the event and was invited to compete in the 2013 Arnold Strongman Classic, one of the biggest and most prestigious competitions for strength athletes.
In addition to his WWE and Strongman career, he has also dabbled in acting. He has played in Three Count (2016) and Holmes & Watson (2018).
WWE: Timeline And Injury
Braun began his professional wrestling career in early 2013. He fought in many matches but didn’t make a big name for himself until he joined the Wyatt Family - a wrestling group comprised of Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper, Erick Rowan, and Braun Strowman - in 2015. He had two great years as partners with the Wyatt Family and his fame rose by leaps and bounds.

Braun was drafted to the RAW brand while Bray Wyatt and Erick Rowan were drafted to SmackDown in 2016. This led to Braun leaving the Wyatt Family and starting his singles career. With his huge physique and astonishing feats of strength (flipped an ambulance with multiple passengers inside, flipped a big production truck as well as a limo) it didn’t take long for him to establish himself as a serious contender even in the big stage of RAW.
In December 2019, Braun was set to fight against Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura at the WWE TLC pay-per-view. But the match was scrapped because Strowman was dealing with an injury. The WWE superstar is dealing with back spasms and is taking a break from wrestling.
