While yesterday brought reports that Braun Strowman was demanding a hefty five-figure fee to work independent dates, the Monster Amongst Men has now moved to shoot down such stories.
That initial story originated from Mike Johnson of PWInsider, with it claimed that indie promoters had been quoted a five-figure price when approaching Strowman. Now though, the one-time WWE Universal Champion has rubbished that claim.
Taking to Twitter, Strowman detailed how he hasn’t spoken to anyone about any bookings as of yet, but those interested in lining up the powerhouse for a show or two should contact his agent at email@example.com.
Let me just get this FYI out. I have not spoken to anyone about bookings. But if you wanna talk business the email to my agent is in my bio. Thank for any confusion you may be reading online.— Adam Scherr (@BraunStrowman) June 10, 2021
Braun was one of six wrestlers released by WWE on 2 June as part of the latest round of the company’s “budget cuts”. By all accounts, Strowman’s reported salary of $1.2 million per annum played a major part in the decision to let him go.
For those wondering, the former Wyatt Family member is under the standard 90-day non-compete clause as part of his WWE exit – meaning that Braun Strowman should be free to wrestle elsewhere as of 31 August.
