WWE Legend Compares Braun Strowman to Hulk Hogan

2017's SummerSlam may be remembered as Braun Strowman's show. Somehow a Fatal 4-Way that featured Samoa Joe, Roman Reigns, and Brock Lesnar was totally monopolized by The Monster Among Men. And he didn't even win the match.

It's not just us, the fans, who were left numb by Strowman's display of raw power last night, either. WWE Legend Hulk Hogan turned to Twitter to send some high praise in Strowman's direction.

Oddly enough, Hogan somehow turned a complement for Strowman into a tweet about himself, but nonetheless, it's still a cool message. Braun's work last night was simply awesome and it sure feels like we'll be getting a Strowman vs. Lesnar match sooner rather than later.

Braun Strowman is one of the best things to happen to WWE in a long time. His remarkable size is reminiscent of the 1980's monster heel that makes Vince McMahon salivate. Yet he possesses a contemporary athleticism that makes him a wrestling unicorn.

This is the essence of Braun Strowman. When he's on RAW, we have to tune in because it's likely that he can produce something we've never seen before — like tipping over an ambulance. Braun Strowman is everything that is right about professional wrestling. The man is a spectacle.


Before speaking or wrestling, WWE fans of any nature are going to be captivated by The Monster Among Men. To Vince McMahon, Braun's only short coming is that he wasn't around to be body slammed by Hulk Hogan at WrestleMania III.

Strowman's 2017 has already been magnificent. His feud with Roman Reigns is one that we've already taken for granted as Strowman has proven that he has main event chops. SummerSlam was a great test to see if Strowman has staying power on WWE's brightest stage - spoiler, he does. Last night was a pivotal point in his growth and one we'll reference as his jumping point for a Hall of Fame career.
