Former WWE Superstar Sin Cara recently revealed details about his backstage relationship with Braun Strowman. Cara stated that The Monster Among Men is a ‘fun guy,’ and they enjoyed working together.
Cause my monsters are real, and they’re trained how to kill
And there’s no comin’ back and they just laughed at how I feel
And these monsters can fight, and they’ll never say die
And there’s no goin’ back, if I get trapped I’ll never heal

He also revealed an incident when he made Braun Strowman laugh during a WWE match and how the latter desperately tried to stop himself from breaking character. Here’s what he had to say:
“I’m a funny guy if you get to know me I like to have fun and even when I used to wrestle I used to say things to the boys because you couldn’t see my mouth move. With Braun it was a lot of fun because he wanted to learn, he wanted to become better. He knew he had an amazing opportunity in his hands and now you can see he’s doing great so it’s fun to be able to see somebody grow from where I started with him to where he is now.”“We had a match, on one of the tours, I can’t remember where and we do the face off and he’s huge. So we do the face-off and that day was cold. Me being me. I told him, ‘You know your nipples are really hard, right?’ and he’s like ‘Shut up, don’t make me laugh’.”
Sin Cara is happy to see Strowman’s current run in WWE. They two have known each other for a long time, and the former Universal Champion has come a long way in the promotion. Cara stated that he has great memories of his matches with Strowman and revealed that The Monster Among Men is a ‘great guy to be around’.
