The Monster Among Men made a record that will remain untouched for the years to come. He eliminated five competitors in the match, which is the most in any Elimination Chamber bout.

Despite being a Heel, Braun Strowman was a fan favorite. It was a match full of violence and powerhouse moves. The lead-up to this match was also praiseworthy. Strowman and Reigns battled it out all over the arena before Strowman speared reigns into the Ambulance to finish things off.
WWE Braun Strowman: Winning the 2018 Money in the Bank Ladder Match
Braun Strowman was a rare amalgamation of brute strength and athletic abilities. For a Monster standing at 6ft 8 inches and weighing 385 pounds, climbing a ladder to grab the briefcase was always going to be tough. But Strowman was different, and he did the unthinkable.
He was up against some high flyers and leaner superstars like Finn Balor, The Miz, Robert Roode, Kofi Kingston, Samoa Joe, Rusev, and Kevin Owens. These were some of the proven performers in Ladder matches, but Strowman defied all the odds stacked up against him and went on to climb the ladder to claim the briefcase.
WWE Braun Strowman: Winning his only Universal Championship title against Goldberg at Wrestlemania 36
Owing to COVID-19 restrictions, Wrestlemania 36 took place inside an empty WWE Performance Centre. Braun faced the Goldberg on the first night of the two nights show. It was a lackluster and uninspired bout with no crowd involved but gave Strowman a new identity of a Champion.
It took Strowman three running powerslams to humble the Universal Champion Goldberg, and finally, Strowman was at the top of the mountain, but mostly due to Roman’s indefinite break, otherwise, WWE’s favorite son would have been up against Goldberg for the Universal Championship. Braun’s only Universal Championship title reign lasted for 141 days.
WWE Braun Strowman: Steel Cage Match vs. Roman Reigns: WWE Raw 2017
Strowman and Reigns have been involved in some of the most brutal battles of all time, and thankfully it is Strowman who has had Reigns’ numbers. In this particular Steel Cage match, the Monster Among Men completely manhandled Reigns and threw him like a douchebag all across the ring.
This match was finally time for the feud to end. Strowman, after winning this brutal match, solidified his status in WWE and continued his path of glory for the years to come. Unfortunately, despite putting up some astonishing and high-octane performances like this, Vince McMahon & Co. never gave him apt opportunities as a future main eventer, unlike their favorite son Roman Reigns.
