Raquel Gonzalez has become a breakout star in NXT this year alongside Dakota Kai and Braun Strowman has kept a close eye on her.
The two are not only physically imposing humans, but they have gone through mental struggles and self-doubt, which helped bring them together.
Speaking to TV Insider, Braun discussed his relationship with Raquel.
"I see a lot of myself in her. She never thought she was good enough. She had people tell her that. We’ve developed a really good friendship in the last year, year-and-a-half, with going to the gym. I got her hooked up with my trainers and nutritionists. She has had such a transformation with not only her body but with her mental state. She is hungry. Her and Rhea Ripley were the best thing on television a few weeks ago. It’s amazing to see the younger talents so hungry and willing to work and do whatever it takes to take that next step. It shows how much fire there is for the business and how well this business will thrive for many years," he said.
Their bond in the gym has helped keep Braun centered as he also commented in the interview that lifting weights has helped his mental state.
Braun is set to compete on Team Raw in the men's Survivor Series elimination match.
