Starting out as a footballer, Braun Strowman made his first entrance in WWE at a time when there were a lot of talented men in the field, yet he succeeded in making a solid impact, becoming a monumental element of wrestling. Currently, he has included acting to his portfolio with a role in the film Holmes & Watson. He also made his video game debut in 2016’s WWE 2K17 and has gone on to work in its 2017 and 2018 versions.
Who is Braun Strowman and How Old is He?
Braun Strowman was born with pale yellow hair and was named Adam Scher at his birth which occurred on September 6, 1983. His parents are sports-loving Native Americans identified as Rick Crusher Scherr and Sarah. His father was a famous softball player but not much is known about his mother. He hails from a small town in Sherrills Ford, North Carolina, which primarily dominated by native Americans. The wrestler who belongs to the white ethnicity grew up with a younger sister named Hannah in Arkansas and Tennessee.
Braun attended Bandys High School in Catawba North Carolina but lacked the aptitude to study. During that time, he began his romance with sports, participating in the school’s football games, track, as well as wrestling. In 2001, he graduated from high school, weighing 100 pounds and towering at 6 feet 5 inches in height from the 5ft 8in he measured when he first enrolled in the school.
Despite playing great games, his poor grades deterred him from getting into college. This was enough justification for Braun to doze and goof off without self-reproach. In 2003, however, he made his way into a community college. There, he joined Hickory Hornets and spent the next four years playing as a semi-pro footballer. Upon graduation in 2007, he attended NFL Scouting Combine in an attempt to become a professional player. However, he failed woefully in his attempt to win the heart of a coach, hence, didn’t turn pro.
With his dream of becoming a professional footballer shattered, Bruan quickly decided to make use of his size by turning his focus to strongman competitions. He spent the 2000s as an amateur strongman and in 2011, he turned professional. Two years later, he signed a deal with WWE and took up the name Braun Strowman. Today, he is known as one of the most persistent wrestlers in history, thanks to his natural raw power.
Braun Strowman’s Net Worth
As one of the busiest wrestlers in WWE, Strowman makes a good fortune from his career. According to reports, the monster wrestler earns nothing less than $350,000 every year from WWE. His net worth is estimated at $1 million. Good enough, he doesn’t have to wrestle to get paid, thanks to money streaming in from endorsements and ads.
Is Braun Strowman Married? Meet His Girlfriend or Partner
Braun Strowman has never been married. In fact, he only got romantically linked to a woman for the first time recently. That woman’s name is Kailey Dawn Farmer, a fellow wrestler. The two have been spotted together on different occasions. Kailey Dawn Farmer competes on the independent scene as Kamilla Kaine. Early 2018, Kailey and other 36 athletes participated in a three-day talent tryout at the WWE Performance Center. Farmer also has a good height, though not as much as her beau. She stands at a height of 5ft 10in which has helped her put up some great fight in the ring. Before wrestling, Kailey was a player in Division I softball and was a member of the Atlanta Steam, a team in the Legends Football League.
Height and Weight
When you look at Braun Strowman, it’s not hard to discern why he has excelled in wrestling. He is enormous both in weight and height which is why he has been nicknamed “monster among men”. He is 6 ft 8 inches tall (208cm) which is over 1 foot taller than the average American man. It shouldn’t come as a surprise as Braun has always been on the big side. In his high school days, he was 6 feet 5 inches tall and weighed a lot. His current weight is 175kg (385lb). His chest and waist measure 62 and 42 inches, individually. He has large biceps which measure 24 inches. His hair color is dark brown which is the same color as his eyes.
