Former WWE Universal Champion Braun Strowman was recently interviewed by TVInsider. During the interview, Braun Strowman opened up about what it was like being a last-minute replacement for Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 36 where he faced Goldberg. Strowman also gave his thoughts on his reign as WWE Universal Champion and why he was so satisfied with it:
You never know what’s going to happen in WWE. That’s one of my favorite things about the job that keeps you on your toes. Opportunity blew the door off the hinges for me at that moment. It was a little more difficult than I think in normal times; [having] no crowd and being under the microscope without being able to hide behind the cheers or the boos and the animation of the audience, I feel like we all had to step our level of performance up. I put my head down and went to work.
In my opinion, I think I did a damn good job. I think we made the most of it. I think we did an awesome job, everyone I had to work with, and behind the scenes and story-telling. The whole aspect of it in the middle of a pandemic, I thought we hit a home run.
