Adam Scherr, much better understood to fans as Braun Strowman, was suddenly released by the WWE back on June 2, 2021. Since then he's competed in four matches-- as soon as for EC3's Free The Narrative, as soon as for Great Lakes Championship Wrestling and two times for Northeast Wrestling-- while likewise making a look at Ring of Honor's Final Battle along with EC3 and Wesley Blake as the Control Your Narrative faction. Scherr has apparently drawn interest from a variety of promotions, but in a new interview with CBS Sports this week he verified he has no interest in signing a full-time agreement anywhere at this time..
" I'm not searching for a full-time contract," Scherr said. "I'm wanting to take pleasure in a few of my time. I love the art of professional wrestling and eight years with WWE was very lengthy. I was extremely, very blessed with the opportunities that I had. I got to see the world and all these things. However it's been nice having these last 6 months to take a step back and breathe for a second.
I forgot about all these little things in life that mean so much. Time flies by and you forget about it. You do not get a chance to do it. So I'm catching up on spending quality time with my family and loved ones. Dealing with my psychological health and my physical health. Dealing with the tolls of 8 years of being a WWE superstar.
" Being full-time on TV weekly, I'm not going to lie, it's difficult," he added. "It's nice not having that added stress element each week. Today, I'm just looking to enjoy my time. Have fun, sell out some structures, raise some money for some charities, and just head out there and do what I do, and that's put smiles on individuals's faces.".
Scherr, originating from a strongman background, at first signed a developmental deal with WWE in 2013 and would jump to the main roster two years later as a member of the Wyatt Family without dealing with the NXT roster. His greatest match came right at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic when, after Roman Reigns dropped out of WrestleMania 36, he filled out and defeated Goldberg in the main event of Night Two to win his only universal and first Championship. He would hold the title up until SummerSlam 2020 before dropping it to "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt.
