Braun Strowman On Prepping For Tyson Fury: ‘I’ve Been Headbutting Brick Walls’
During Friday’s press conference that revealed that Tyson Fury and Braun Strowman would be going head-to-head at WWE Crown Jewel, Strowman also stuck around for some interviews after the event. Speaking to the WWE following the conference, Strowman was asked about his preparation for the upcoming match, and what went down during the conference.
When asked how he’s preparing to take on someone who isn’t as experienced as he might be in the ring, Strowman said he was following the standard protocol. “You know, I go about it just like I do every day, it’s no different than any other WWE superstar I’ve had to face in the past in WWE. Tyson Fury is just another opportunity for me to go out there and show the world what I’m capable of doing, so I’ve been in the gym as usual, eating, fueling the meat castle, getting ready to take on Tyson Fury.”
Strowman was then asked if he’s been studying any tape on what Fury has been up to in order to keep prepared, but Strowman gave a much wilder answer. “I’ve been head-butting brick walls to toughen my skull up,” he said. When it came to the near altercation between the two at the press conference, Strowman acknowledged it was just the competitiveness between the two.
“It is what it is, we’re two grown men and larger than life personalities, and sometimes things get a little escalated, and with a big fight like this coming up, I might be poking at him a little bit to see if I can get him rustled.” Needless to say, Fury and Strowman are preparing hard for this match, so when the two duke it out later this month, it’ll be a must-see event.
