Braun Strowman was born in Sherrills Ford, North Carolina on September 6, 1983. He is the son of Rick Scherr, a Hall of Fame member of the United States Specialty Sports Association (USSSA) for his celebrated slow pitch softball career. He also has one sibling, Hannah.

Braun attended Bandys High School and graduated in 2001. It wasn’t until 2003 when he enrolled in a community college. Braun was quite the athlete during his time in school, participating in football, track and field, and wrestling.

To earn supplemental income, he was employed as a doorman and mechanic. In the meantime, he sought football opportunities, playing semi-professional football for the Hickory Hornets and attended NFL Scouting events.

By 2010, Braun pursued strongman competitions, competing in the Arnold Amateur Strongman, the Arnold Strongman Classic, and the SCL North American Championship. This got him noticed by World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), which signed him to a contract in 2013 and was sent to the WWE Performance Center.

He would make his in-ring debut in December 2014 at an NXT live event, beating Chad Gable. Braun made his main roster debut in August 2015 as part of The Wyatt Family. But he eventually branched off onto his own, getting drafted to the Raw brand in 2016 while Bray Watt and Erick Rowan were picked up by SmackDown Live!

Braun maintained a near year-long undefeated streak, eventually losing by pinfall to Roman Reigns in March 2017. Because he became one of the most popular characters on WWE television, Braun was quickly elevated to the championship scene, but failed on multiple occasions to win the title. To this date, he is a Money in the Bank winner, a WWE Raw Tag Team Champion, and WWE Greatest Royal Rumble Champion.

Outside of wrestling, he has appeared in two motion pictures: “Three Count” and “Holmes & Watson.”

We estimate that Braun Strowman’s net worth is $1.35 million (2018).

So how much is $1.35 million really?

$1.35 million is how much the WWE spends on pyrotechnics at several live events. $1.35 million can cover the cost of starting your own independent professional wrestling promotion.
