During the show, he raised his hands to high five one of the host of the show, Suren Benjamin. Standing tall at six foot eight, and weighing in at 420 pounds, the figure of Strowman intimidated the Suren so much that he had to duck as if to save himself from getting slammed on the floor.
The World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), seems to thinks that Suren almost got a mini heart-attack from that move, and we dont blame them, it sure looked like he did.
The hosts of the show settled in later and could not restrain from posing with Braun, who showed-off his huge biceps.
The wrestler will also meet young athletes from the Special Olympics International, contest winners, and children’s hospital patients. The Monster will also address the WWE’s talent recruitment strategy to find more talent from the country.
Strowman will meet with Indian fans on July 20 in Mumbai. He will then later travel to Hyderabad on Saturday, July 21.
