World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) is just one of the shows capitalizing on this trend. Throughout it’s run time, the show has given birth to numerous stars of the wrestling world. Braun Strowman is just one of those stars. One of the newer generations of wrestlers, Strowman is the current WWE Intercontinental Champion.
