Braun Strowman on how The Undertaker has helped him in WWE
Strowman said that he has learned a lot under The Undertaker who has taken The Monster Among Men under his wing. He said that The Phenom has kept an eye on him right from the start of his WWE career:
"I met The Undertaker when I came to the Performance Center. Taker has kept an eye on me since Day 1. I didn't know what I did to get in his good graces, but I’m thankful that he was willing and able to bring me under the learning tree. There are no more giants in this industry that are full-time working like I am. I feel like I am walking into some immense footsteps. I’m carrying this torch and want to represent it to the fullest. Taker is such an amazing man behind the scenes and such an amazing performer."
Strowman even spoke about a touching conversation that The Undertaker had with him and Roman Reigns after a match at Madison Square Garden.
