Braun Strowman is everywhere, causing destruction and havoc. After flipping an ambulance in the WWE Raw backstage to inflict the biggest of damage on Roman Reigns, Strowman not only prevailed over the veteran Big Show on Monday April 17, but also was the reason behind collapsing the entire WWE ring.

The moment did bring about memories from the Big Show vs Brock Lesnar match in the WWE more than a decade back. That was the famous WWE Attitude Era, wasn't it. 

Well, WWE fans are sick and tired of the PG Era at the moment, to be honest. But when we see more backstage segments taking place on Raw and SmackDown these days and Strowman getting involved in wreaking havoc to other WWE superstars, we can't but help feel that WWE are indeed trying their best to bridge the gap between the Attitude Era and the PG Era.

Braun Strowman's diet

In the Stone Cold Steve Austin podcast last year, Strowman mentioned that his total intake is approx. 12-13,000 calories a day. Excerpts:

"I eat a lot of Chipotle. That is my guilty pleasure when it comes to food. I guess they advertise that they are organic, and the price isn't too bad for how much I have to eat, and I usually eat with them 3­5 times a week whenever I am out doing that.

"It gets tough, when late at night there isn't a whole lot of options, so I mean it's loading up, whenever I go into a town, first place I go to is a vitamin shop and go straight loading up on protein bars and protein cookies and snacks like that so I don't have to be a fat pig and eat whatever at a gas station around 2 o'clock in the morning whenever I'm making it into towns."
