WWE legend Booker T is glad to see Braun Strowman back in the company.
On the September 5th edition of Monday Night Raw Braun Strowman made his return and laid waste to the tag division. He attacked all the competitors involved in a Fatal Four-Way match to determine the number one contenders for the Undisputed Tag Team Championships.
The Monster Among Men was released in June last year due to budget cuts. His return is one of many following the retirement of Vince McMahon and Triple H being named the new Head of Creative for WWE.
On his Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T discussed some of the fan backlash regarding Strowman’s return and why he’s excited to see him back in WWE.
“People aren’t so happy about the way Braun Strowman came back. There are mixed emotions as far as the way he came back and squashed Alpha Academy. I look at bringing someone like Braun back, you’ve gotta bring him back with some impact and you’ve got to wonder how you are going to do it. Should you do it in a match? Should you do it in a promo? That’s here nor there. There again, I’m not looking to book the show, I’m just glad to see Braun back in action, back where he’s supposed to be.”
“A person like Braun Strowman being 6′ 5″+, 300+ pounds, he can thrive in WWE.”

Strowman teased his appearance for this Friday’s SmackDown during a backstage interview on Raw. The Monster Among Men has a well-documented history with the Undisputed Universal Champion Roman Reigns dating back to 2017.
A recent report suggested Strowman will be a top babyface on SmackDown.
