Upcoming Braun Strowman documentary focuses on something more important than wrestling

WWE’s announced that a new documentary on Braun Strowman will be available on Peacock (in the United States, and WWE Network worldwide) starting this Fri., Dec. 15.

The doc won’t focus on Strowman’s in-ring career, or his current efforts to come back from neck fusion surgery. Instead, it will cover his work for victims and survivors of the November 2021 Waukesha Christmas parade attack, in which a man drove his SUV through the Wisconsin town’s annual parade killing six people and injuring 62 others.

From WWE:

On Friday, a special documentary featuring Braun Strowman visiting Waukesha airs as Braun Strowman: Waukesha Strong goes on demand at 10 a.m. ET

Strowman (whose real name is Adam Scherr) began raising money for those effected by the tragedy shortly after it occurred, working an independent wrestling show in Waukesha after he’d been released by WWE. Earlier this year, after returning to WWE he continued those efforts in partnership with the NFL’s Green Bay Packers.

The young fan Strowman honored with those boots, eight year old Jackson Sparks, said he considered Braun a hero and always wanted to meet him. Strowman met the Sparks family at that January SmackDown show in Green Bay.

It would seem Braun’s stayed in touch with the family. The graphic for Braun Strowman: Waukesha Strong features him wearing a baseball hat with the Jackson Sparks Foundation logo while standing in front of a baseball diamond. Baseball was another thing Jackson loved, and that foundation was founded by the Sparks to grant baseball wishes to children in need.
