Braun Strowman has been around in the WWE universe since 2015. Since making his debut, Braun Strowman has quickly established himself as one of the most influential wrestlers around. ‘The Monster Among Men’ has proven himself to be the toughest one-on-one wrestler in the history of the company. During his time with the Wyatt family, Strowman boasted a rather impressive record of having lost just seven times since his debut in August 2015. Here are details on some of his biggest setbacks.

The Big Show

In 2017, the Big Show fought Braun Strowman on three occasions. The mighty giant lost two of the three matches against Braun Strowman and drew the other. However, a year earlier, during Raw on February 2016, the two giants had met in the ring when Big Show was caught off guard by Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper, and Erick Rowan. The event resulted in Big Show winning the tie via disqualification.

Kalisto is a 5ft 6' wrestler while Braun Strowman stands at 6ft 8' in stature. Hence, it seemed highly unlikely that the former would win a match against the huge Strowman. However, the two wrestlers met in a dumpster match a week after Strowman fought the Big Show. Kalisto pulled off a memorable win as he managed to land a vicious kick to the shins of Strowman, who was caught off guard and ended in the dumpster. 

John Cena

John Cena is widely regarded as one of the most iconic wrestlers to have stepped into the WWE ring. The ‘You can’t see me’ wrestler fought against Braun Strowman in September 2017. The match took place, two weeks before Cena fought Roman Reigns at 'No Mercy' 2017. During the Raw match, ‘The Monster Among Men’ smashed John onto a set of steel steps during their singles encounter. As a result, Strowman was then disqualified and John Cena was adjudged as the winner of the tie.

Brock Lesnar

The fatal four-way SummerSlam main event which included Brock Lesnar, Braun Strowman, Roman Reigns and Samoa Joe was indeed an exciting affair. Fans were left wanting more of the intense rivalry between Lesnar and Braun Strowman. The audience got exactly what they wanted at the Raw-exclusive 'No Mercy' pay-per-view, as Lesnar put his Universal Championship on the line against Strowman. However, Braun Strowman was comfortably defeated by a vastly superior Lesnar after the latter pulled off his signature ‘F5’ move.
