Braun Strowman Childhood Story – Early Life and Family Background:
Braun Strowman (christened Adam Joseph Scherr) was born on the 6th day of September 1983 at Sherrills Ford in North Carolina, USA. He was born having a Blond or fair hair.
Braun was the first child born to a mother of whom little is known about and to his father Rick Scherr (a Slow-Pitch Softball player).
Young Strowman grew up with his younger sister Hannah and sports-loving parents at Sherrills Ford, a town in North Carolina that is best known for being largely dominated by white ethnicity. He grew up collecting the facial copy of his dad.
The youngster who was of the same height as his peers for the better part of his formative years was advised by Rick (his father) to be actively involved in sports.
Reasons for such advice were not far-fetched as Rick, at the time, was just years away from becoming the greatest slow-pitch softball player of all time.
Heeding to his father advice, Strowman picked interest in football, the childhood sport of his peers before progress in education opened a window for other sports.
Braun Strowman Education:
Notable among Braun Strowman’s academic background was his education at Bandy High School in Catawba, North Carolina.
While at Bandy high school, Strowman was a towering figure among students of the institution, standing at a height that was pretty much out of norms for his age.
“You know, I grew up normal until I started high school. During my freshman year, I was a 5-[foot]-8 or 5-9, 180-pound little butterball.
When I graduated high school, I was 6-5 and 305. I think I swallowed a magic bean pill.”
It was at the high school that Strowman honed his skills in football and was involved in wrestling. He also joined a Track and field team where he served in the capacity of throwing Discus and Shotput.
However, life in high school was not all rosy for the teenager whose academic performance was bedevilled with poor grades until he graduated in 2001 at the age of 17.
Braun Strowman Biography – Road To Fame Story:
Upon graduation, Strowman became clueless at the crossroads of career choice, a development that saw him spent nearly two years doing nothing.
“I didn’t want to go to college, I didn’t want to play football anymore, and I kind of just goofed off for about a year and a half. And then I was like, ‘Well, I’m kind of pissing away some talents that I’ve been given; let me get back to football.”
Thus began a journey that saw Strowman spend the next 5 years of his life juggling between playing semi-professional football for the Hickory Hornets and making ends meet by working as a Mechanic and “bouncer” at a nightclub.
Although Strowman was committed to playing football and was once invited to the NFL Scouting Combine in 2007, he was never scouted by any team owing to his lack of college career.
Nevertheless, Strowman was not one to give up on using his body build to seek new career paths. One day, he ran into a couple of strongmen plying their trade at a bar.
The men, sensing that Strowman had what it takes to become one of them, invited the young man who gave the competition a try and got hooked to it.
The strongman prodigy would later enter his first competition in September 2009 and turn professional in November 2011.
At the peak of his strongman career in 2012, Strowman recorded a deadlift of 905 pounds and could squat 775 pounds, winning competitions until he had a bicep injury.
Braun Strowman Biography – Rise To Fame Story:
2013 was a decisive year for Strowman who left strongman circuits to begin a career in wrestling.
Although the decision was partly fueled by his bicep injury which saw him lose a strongman competition, Strowman admits that he was convinced by fellow strongman and scout, Mark Henry to sign a contract with WWE.
“Henry took a liking of me and saw that not only did I enjoy my Job as a strongman but had the gift of telling stories that made my fellow strong men laugh. wwe liked that too”.
It wasn’t long before Strowman adopted the ring name “Braun Strowman” and recorded a debut victory during a match against Chad Gable in December 2014.
Strowman would thereafter record victory in a match against an unidentified fighter in 2015, make his roster debut in a match against Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns in that same year, as well as establish himself as the newest member of The Wyatt Family (a formidable wrestling stable in the WWE).
The rest, as they say, is history.
