Of all of WWE’s latest releases, the one that caught most people off guard was seeing the company part ways with one-time Universal Champion Braun Strowman. And now, it looks like there’s a possibly that the Monster Among Men could find himself becoming #AllElite at some point in the future.
Speaking to TMZ Sports, recent AEW signee Mark Henry explained how Strowman is “super high on my list” when it comes to talent he’d like to see join Tony Khan’s promotion.
The World’s Strongest Man has been brought in as a coach, scout and analyst by All Elite Wrestling, and he explained how there is interest from both sides – AEW and Braun Strowman – in working out a deal somewhere down the road.
Henry stated how Strowman will be free of his WWE 90-day non-compete clause by the middle of August, and it’ll be then that more serious conversations can take place. Interestingly, Mark also named IMPACT Wrestling’s W. Morrissey, fka Big Cass, as another talent he’d like to see in AEW.
Following these comments from Henry, Dave Meltzer added that AEW is first and foremost going hard on bringing in Tommy End/Aleister Black, although certain people are also pushing for Braun Strowman to be brought into the fold.
As and when Braun does resurface, the real-life Adam Scherr will have to find an alternative moniker to go by, with WWE owning the Braun Strowman name.
