Braun Strowman was having a tough time in his life and had a breakup. He admitted that his “personal life was just a mess.”

However, Braun Strowman mentioned that the conversation with Vince McMahon had helped him a lot regarding his mental well being. ‘The Monster Among Men’ considers Vince to be a father figure and the conversation was of a father-son itself.
Strowman said, “I got to a point where I felt like I was a number in the system. I needed to address this. I went in and I talked to Vince; we sat down and literally had a father/son conversation. He gave me this sense of reassurance and a sense of wealth that I thought I didn’t have. That was just, like, wow.”
Braun Strowman is grateful to Vince for lending him a hand in the difficult times and Strowman thanked him for keeping the faith.
He said, “I can’t thank him enough for taking the time. I mean, at the end of the day, he has so much stuff going on. You know how awesome of a human [being] he is, and how loyal he is, and things like that.”
“I’m forever indebted to him for him taking the time just to give me this reassurance”, added Strowman
