Braun Strowman is one of the biggest superstars to return to WWE under the new regime. He, along with Johnny Gargano, Karrion Kross, Dexter Lumis, and Dakota Kai were brought back by Triple H, the company’s new Chief Creative Officer and Chief Content Officer. He recently reported on his dedication to the promotion.
The Monster Among Men was released by WWE in June 2021. He spent his time away from the Stamford-based promotion, appearing in places like Ring of Honor and Major League Wrestling. But his biggest endeavor during this time was co-founding Control Your Narrative (CYN) with fellow former WWE talent EC3.
Strowman recently appeared on the After The Bell podcast with Corey Graveswhere he explained that he would never work for anyone other than WWE or himself:
“I always said in interviews, and people thought I was stupid for that, I said I would never put on a pair of boots for anyone but WWE and I kept my word. I never put on another pair of boots, went out and started my own thing, worked for myself, gave young talent a place to come to work, earn a living, hone their craft at home. inside of CYN. Like I said I stuck to my guns, I will never wrestle for anyone but myself or WWE and here we are, the monster is home,” said Strowman. [h/t Cultaholic]
Braun Strowman returned to the company on the September 5 episode of RAW. He surprisingly came out in a fatal four-way match for the No. 1 title in the Undisputed Tag Team Championships. He then proceeded to the presentation of the eight competitors.

Braun Strowman will make his official WWE return to the ring on this week’s episode of Friday Night SmackDown when he takes on Alpha Academy’s Otis.
Since returning two weeks ago, Strowman has attacked Superstars from both brands, knocking out multiple teams. He particularly targeted Chad Gable and Otis, even bombarding the latter in a show of monstrous power during the Sept. 9 episode of Blue Brand.
Fans won’t have to wait long for his in-ring return, as he takes on the former Money In The Bank winner on SmackDown this week.
