WWE Superstar Braun Strowman Headlines Documentary About Victims Of Waukesha Christmas Tragedy
He’s called The Monster Among Men but wrestler Braun Strowman will come across as more of a gentle giant after Peacock and WWE’s new documentary drops this week.
Per WrestleZone via Yahoo, Strowman is taking part in a documentary special Braun Strowman: Waukesha Strong that chronicles the seven-footer’s solicitous outreach to the people of Waukesha, Wisconsin in the aftermath of the hit-and-run Christmas parade tragedy.
“On Friday, a special documentary featuring Braun Strowman visiting Waukesha airs as Braun Strowman: Waukesha Strong goes on demand at 10 a.m. ET,” WWE wrote in a tease picked up by F4WOnline and MSN.
Strowman, whose real name is Adam Scherr, began his outreach early in 2023 when he teamed up with the Green Bay Packers to pay tribute to a young victim of the tragedy, eight-year-old Jackson Sparks.
The football team and the giant huddled up to create a pair of custom boots with the Packers logo and colors. He wore them back in January on an episode of Friday Night Smackdown and later auctioned them off to charity to benefit those affected in Waukesha.
“Hearing and seeing what awful things happened there last year, it reminded me of how special life is and how important it is to support your community,” Strowman said in the video linked above. Finding out that Sparks was a fan of his, the good-hearted monster was instantly compelled to do something for the community.
He also met with Jackson’s family which made local news over there. They have since started the Jackson Sparks Foundation which, similar to Make-A-Wish, grants baseball dreams to children in need.
Braun Strowman: Waukesha Strong premieres this coming Friday morning on Peacock in the US and will stream on the WWE Network everywhere else. Strowman in the meantime, undergoing neck fusion surgery this year, shall take a little longer than a few days to return to the ring.
