Day In Their Life: WWE’s Braun Strowman

Braun Strowman: WWE superstar. 6-foot-8, 385 pounds.

Me: WWE fan. 5-foot-8, 180 pounds.

The Monster Among Men consumes 15,000 calories a day, anchored by his favorite thing to order at Chipotle: a 2-pound, 1,460-calorie bowl built around three servings of steak and two of chicken. To get pumped for WrestleMania, I tried it myself for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The only thing pumped afterward was my stomach.

Roundup: Bella Twins, Honey Bees, and Giant Meals

It’s the end of the month, so – to distract you from the fact summer is basically over – I threw a little roundup together of some of my recent shows. I freaked out a little when Blake Horton made me eat all my calories for the day in one meal; freaked out a lot when I tried harvesting honey from swarms of bees; and then completely lost it when the Bella Twins came to visit.

WWE SummerSlam with FanSided’s Rob Wolkenbrod: Ep. 59

It’s one of my favorite events of the year: WWE’s SummerSlam. To get prepped, I dialed up Rob Wolkenbrod to chat some wrestling. Rob runs the Daily DDT website for FanSided, Time Inc’s division of fan-generated content. We discussed what it’s like to run a site with 30+ contributors, how to stand out in a crowded WWE market, and made our SummerSlam predictions.

Excuse the stuffy nose. I was getting over a cold, but after Finn Balor won the Universal Championship with a separated shoulder at last year’s SummerSlam, I wasn’t taking the episode off.

Check out Rob on Twitter, as well as Daily DDT. And be sure to check out the site for all their wrestling coverage.

Of course, you can always follow me on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and Snapchat.
