While it might not have been the role he wanted at WrestleMania, Braun Strowman says being in a program with Colin Jost and Michael Che helped him get mainstream attention.
While speaking with Sports Illustrated, Strowman had this to say about his feud with the SNL stars:
“Mania was great, I had the opportunity to work with some pop culture guys doing a little bridging outside of the gap of what I’ve normally done with my character.”
“That was a good thing because it got my face out in front of more mainstream media and audiences that don’t necessarily watch wrestling. We were just talking about this at work, and I want to say it had 257 million views in outlets outside of wrestling in a matter of a week. It wasn’t ideally what I wanted to do at WrestleMania, but it was a good thing to do at WrestleMania.”
“The Monster Among Men” also talked about his goals for the future after recently signing a new 5-year deal, saying he wants to win gold and main event WrestleMania.
