Professional wrestling career

WWE (2013-present)

On May 12, 2013, it was reported that Scherr was in conversations with the professional wrestling promotion, WWE. After this, he was sent to the WWE Performance Center and assigned the ring name "Braun Stowman".

As Stowman, he began making match appearances in late 2014 on WWE NXT. On December 18 during NXT in Jacksonville, Florida, Stowman defeated Chad Gable. The following night on NXT saw a victory again for Stowman over Gable. It would not be until NXT on May 7, 2015, when Stowman scored a victory over Steve Cutler. During the May 21st NXT tapings, Stowman defeated Dash Wilder, followed by a win on June 6's NXT over Tye Dillinger. On June 2, 2015, Stowman wrestled a successful dark match against an unnamed opponent on Main Event. On the June 20 edition of NXT, Stowman defeated Tye Dillinger once more in singles action. On the August 24, 2015 edition of Monday Night Raw Stowman made his WWE main roster debut as a surprise member of The Wyatt Family assisting Bray Wyatt and Luke Harper beat down their opponents Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose.

At Survivor Series he led Team Raw to victory as a survivor with Triple H in the 5-on-5 Survivor Series match, in which he eliminated Shinsuke Nakamura, Bobby Roode, and Randy Orton.

During the remainder of 2017, Strowman pursued a feud with Kane as to settling which of the two as the "biggest monster" on Raw. Their feud expanded to include Brock Lesnar and determining whether Strowman or Kane would be the first contender for Lesnar's Universal title. In 2018, on the January 8th episode of Raw, Strowman assaulted Kane and Lesnar backstage, concluding with Strowman pulling an entire scaffold structure across the prone bodies of his rivals. The following week on the January 15 episode of Raw, General Manager Kurt Angle publicly (kayfabe) fired Strowman in the ring for his actions backstage against Lesnar and Kane. For most of the night, Strowman proceeded to wreak havoc backstage after eliminating security guards assigned to escort Strowman from the arena. Strowman's rampage included disengaging a technical trailer from a Mack truck, soon followed by Strowman tipping over the Mack truck. His havoc reached its next highest point when he stormed the announcers' area and seized Michael Cole and hurled him into a group of officials and security personnel. While desperately attempting to dissuade Strowman from inflicting further harm, Kurt Angle then announced he had received a phone call from Raw Commissioner Stephanie McMahon who had (kayfabe) re-hired Strowman, thus placing him back into title contention at the Royal Rumble for the Universal Championship in the triple threat match against Brock Lesnar and Kane.
