On that note, the "Monster Among Men" revealed that he consumes about 15,000 calories per day in order to fuel his near-400 pound body.
Additionally, Strowman elucidated on his SummerSlam matchup for the WWE Universal title, stating that Brock Lesnar, Samoa Joe, Roman Reigns and himself are going to blow the roof off the arena in NYC.
He had a message for his arch-rival Reigns, and told him to get sleep and rest up since "The Big Dog" will need that and much more if he is to stand any chance against Strowman.
