Braun Strowman is reportedly in big trouble backstage with WWE owner Vince McMahon and the company’s management.
The Monster Among Men, who stands 6-foot-8, has allegedly had a series of run-ins with top brass — with insiders saying he is “his own worst enemy.”
Strowman, 35, is one of the biggest stars on the roster and has enjoyed a huge push into the Universal Title picture over the past 18 months.
Many expected him to win the title at last week’s Crown Jewel pay-per-view but were left shocked when he lost an extremely quick match to Brock Lesnar for the belt.
The apparent reluctance to make the 385-pound giant WWE’s top man has left many baffled, but PW Insider’s Mike Johnson claims it is because of major “heat” backstage.
Four different sources confirmed Strowman is in hot water after developing a reputation for arriving late and leaving shows early.
Johnson said: “There are times where Strowman is negligent when it comes to showing up on time.
“Sometimes he makes mistakes in terms of etiquette in the backstage in the locker room,” Johnson said. “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.”
Meanwhile, Strowman is also believed to be having serious injury troubles, with Dave Meltzer claiming his “knees are shot.”
This year’s Money in the Bank winner was a professional strong man before joining WWE in 2013. He debuted as part of the Wyatt Family but has come into his own since going alone as a singles competitor.
