Braun Strowman is apparently dealing with backstage heat. The 35-year old WWE Superstar is developing a reputation for leaving early, and breaking backstage etiquette. According to Mike Johnson of PWInsider, Strowman is currently being described as “his own worst enemy and his own worst advocate.” Transcription of PWInsider Audio comes via WrestlingNews:
“One of the things that I heard from multiple people – we’re talking 4 different people. There are times where Strowman is negligent when it comes to showing up on time,” Johnson said. He added “He has a reputation at times for leaving a little early and sometimes he makes mistakes in terms of etiquette in the backstage in the locker room. Sometimes, as one person put it, he’s his own worst enemy and his worst advocate. They would be high on him and just when he gets to the point where you would think the next step is putting him into the centerpiece position for the company [then]something happens and he makes some sort of misstep backstage and people within management kind of cool on him and they take a step back.”
Strowman is also dealing with knee injuries at the moment. Dave Meltzer recently described Strowman’s knees as “shot” on Wrestling Observer Radio. Strowman was defeated by Brock Lesnar in less than 5 minutes at WWE Crown Jewel.
