There are a lot of questions that come to mind when considering Braun Strowman, the giant du jour in WWE. Despite his recent injury, he still captures the imagination of wrestling fans with every tweet, scream, or discussion of fighting Ursula from The Little Mermaid. The Masked Man Show sat down with Braun recently and got to the bottom of some of the more pressing questions: how long he’s been a wrestling fan, how he got into wrestling, and, most importantly, what a Braun Strowman Chipotle order looks like. Here’s a brief excerpt from the interview.
Listen to the full podcast here. This transcript has been edited and condensed.
David Shoemaker: Everybody wants to know: How much food do you eat in a day?
Braun Strowman: You know, I don’t really keep track of stuff. If I’m hungry, I eat. A lot of guys that I work with [are] so worried about, "Oh, I gotta eat here or there or this and that." I just eat, man. I don’t care.
Shoemaker: At you eating most of the time?
Strowman: Yeah, I mean, I go out to eat, I eat three entrées usually. I binge-eat Chipotle during the week and snack in between meals, and yeah, I’m kinda like a cow. I just graze all day long.
Shoemaker: Do the employees of the Chipotle know what’s coming when you walk in the door?
Strowman: That’s funny. The one that’s by my house in Orlando, I can walk in and they just start making it ’cause I eat the exact same thing every time I go in there. I walk through the door and I just walk to the cash register because they make it and it’s done.
Shoemaker: What’s the order? For all of us trying to get big and strong like you.
Strowman: A bowl. One scoop of rice. Grilled vegetables. Three scoops of steak. Two scoops of chicken. Guac. Corn. Sour cream.
Here’s the quick-and-dirty, back-of-the-guacamole-stained-napkin mathematical breakdown:
One scoop of rice: 210 calories
Grilled vegetables: 20
Three scoops of steak: 3 x 150 = 450
Two scoops of chicken: 2 x 180 = 360
Sour cream: 120
In total, that’s either 1,470 or 1,770 calories, depending on whether or not he accepts the complimentary tortilla that comes with all Chipotle bowls. (My hunch: He unwraps it like a giant piece of Juicy Fruit and pops it in his mouth before he leaves the premises.) According to an employee at the Chipotle franchise on Sunset and Vine in Los Angeles, that order would run you $22.17.
Being a WWE superstar is not for the faint of heart.
