EC3 On His Experience On Working With Braun Strowman

Former two times TNA World Heavyweight Champion EC3 aka Ethan Carter III who is also a four times WWE 24/7 Champion recently talked about his experience on working with former WWE star and a former WWE Universal Champion Braun Strowman aka Adam Scherr.

EC3 was first recognized by WWE back in 2009 when he walks on the Florida Championship Wrestling which was the development Territory of WWE back in the time. He even won the FCW Florida Tag Team Championship one time along with Johnny Curtis who is mostly famous under the name of Fandango.

EC3 On His Experience On Working With Braun Strowman

In 2010 he worked as a participant of the NXT which was the Talent Hunt competition back in the time. He was still working under his ring name Derrick Bateman. In 2013 he was released by WWE and he started trying to find success elsewhere. He joined Impact Wrestling and at the same time he was working on the independent circuit. He was treated as a main event star in the Impact Wrestling as he won the TNA World Heavyweight Championship two times.

Everybody was expecting a big push for him as he showed great potential outside of WWE. But the plans of WWE were completely different. They brought him back just to bury him completely. His run in WWE is considered as one of the worst runs for any professional wrestler. It completely destroyed all the momentum he gained. In 2020 WWE released him.

EC3 aka Ethan Carter III who is also a four times WWE 24/7 Champion recently spoke to Insight With Chris Van Vliet where he talked about his experience on working with former WWE star and a former WWE Universal Champion Braun Strowman aka Adam Scherr. He said;

“When you think of a guy like that, he was signed and put in the system. So he knows nothing but the system he is accustomed to, until he shows up to this dimly lit bar in downtown Orlando.

“Adam seeing that we had no catering, no locker room, he knows it going into it. But seeing him experience something different, it opens his eyes to see what else is out there and how does this work? What’s fortunate for him is that he had a great run and he is a great talent.

“He can pick anywhere to go and get a great reaction. But after a month, fans can go, ok, well what’s next? But his ability to re-create what he wants to be within the narrative, this is what he can bring to the table. As far as wrestling goes and where he goes, who’s to say?”

Braun Strowman Wants To Face Bray Wyatt

Former WWE star and a former WWE Universal champion Braun Strowman who is also a former WWE Intercontinental Champion recently made a challenge to former WWE star and a former three times WWE World Champion Bray Wyatt.

It is not that these two athletes did not face each other before. They did present some good matches in WWE before, but in most cases Bray Wyatt came out victorious. The duo had a match at SummerSlam pay per view event of last year and the match was for the WWE Universal Championship. Bray defeated Braun in that match. Just the previous paper view event of WWE, the Horror show at Extreme Rules, the duo had another match and it was also won by Bray Wyatt.

Braun Strowman Wants To Face Bray Wyatt

Braun Strowman started his career as a member of The Wyatt Family, as a partner of Bray Wyatt. We are not counting his time being a rosebud of Adam Rose. This appearance was so forgettable, that even Vince McMahon did not know about it.

Later he made his official debut under his real gimmick as a member of the Wyatt Family that was run by Bray Wyatt. Later he started running solo and he had massive success in the way in a very short amount of time.

Recently Braun made a challenge to Bray Wyatt, but it is not confirmed if the match would really take place, and if it does, what would be the venue of this match. Rumours of Bray Wyatt joining AEW is floating around the world of professional wrestling for quite a long time, maybe Braun is going there as well.  Or maybe they would fight ine an independent circuit ring. Nothing has been confirmed so far.

Braun Strowman who is also a former WWE Intercontinental Champion recently spoke to Control Your Narrative where he made a challenge to former WWE star and a former three times WWE World Champion Bray Wyatt. He said;

“I don’t know if it’s really one person. I think it’s anyone, anyone that has something inside them that they need to get out. Anybody that needs to be set free. These things have always been good [stares at his hands] at setting things free…

“There’s only one man on this earth that I want to see knocking that door. He’s family, he showed me things in life that I never could have imagined seeing. He bestowed the gift upon me of being the godfather to his son. Windham, I’m waiting for you brother.”

Is Braun Strowman Really Coming Back To The WWE?

WWE releasing Braun Strowman was one of the most unbelievable incidents of this year. While the company was always expected to release tons of superstars due to COVID-19 budget cuts (which they did), this behemoth name was one of the original products of the banner. Hence, he was never among the speculated names to be released. Besides, WWE still using him in the main event scene, days before the let-go happened.

Reports claimed that the $1.2 million per year contract appeared to be fatal for Braun Strowman as WWE was in an attempt to clear a huge budget. He was not the only high-dollar contract to be trimmed since Lana was released because of her big payday. Unlike the Ravishing Russian, there are rumors that WWE could be interested in bringing back the former Universal Champion, in a lower contract, obviously.

Update On Braun Strowman Heading To AEW/Impact After WWE Release

Is Braun Strowman Really Coming Back To The WWE? 1

Ringside News provided an update about the rumor concerning the former top WWE Superstar making his possible return. They were told by a tenured member of the team that “if WWE made any offer to Braun Strowman, he would be back in the fold immediately.” Since that has not happened, no efforts have been made on WWE’s part in recent times.

“We keep getting asked about Braun Strowman’s situation. Here is all we know. WWE has no interest in having him back. We were told if it was going to happen then he would be back in the fold already. His non-compete clause is over and WWE isn’t interested in having him back,” the source noted.

Is Braun Strowman Really Coming Back To The WWE? 2

Since the 90-day no-compete clause attached to the Monster Among Men is over, he is likely to be moving ahead to his next destination. He’s come back to action in an indie wrestling match against EC3 and that should only be the beginning of his post-WWE career.

Braun Strowman has an interest in Impact Wrestling and that seems to be the most likely future for him. There have been some brief talks with AEW, but it didn’t go anywhere. The source added that the superstar’s representatives informed them that they “have had” talks with WWE since his release, but those talks may have come to an end. Plus, future plans around his future will soon be revealed.

Update On Braun Strowman Heading To AEW/Impact After WWE Release

WWE trimmed down yet another round of roster members from the company in June and one of the big names was Braun Strowman. It was indeed shocking news for the WWE Universe given that he was a top star who featured in the main event of the then bygone PPV event, Wrestlemania Backlash. Without a doubt, he was one of the mainstays of the company for several years and a former WWE Universal Champion.

That being said, there has to be a demand for a talent like him, outside the WWE but to date, no signing has been announced around him. After his WWE release, Braun Strowman never really spoke about his future but he did show off his new look to mention that he is taking his physique, very much seriously. He also had quite a wild celebration during his recent birthday, surrounded by all the ladies.

Update On Braun Strowman Heading To AEW/Impact After WWE Release 10

Ringside News previously informed that Braun Strowman has been inching closer to sign a deal with Impact Wrestling. But this isn’t the only company that has spoken to the former WWE Superstar. Obviously, All Elite Wrestling is also in the picture as they also have had a conversation with the behemoth guy.

Braun Strowman himself teased about his future

According to a report by Fightful Select, AEW has spoken to Braun Strowman. But at this time, Impact Wrestling seems to be the frontrunner to get him under their banner since they reportedly are “heavily interested” in the Monster Among Men,

“There had been talks between Scherr and All Elite Wrestling, but of recent weeks we’ve actually heard that IMPACT Wrestling is heavily interested in bringing in the former WWE Universal Champion.”

Update On Braun Strowman Heading To AEW/Impact After WWE Release 11

Impact Wrestling tapings in Nashville, Tennessee are ongoing and word is there that Adam Scherr (real name of Braun Strowman) is coming into the company. There is no further information available on the story but it appears that talks with AEW haven’t really progressed in recent times.

Meanwhile, Braun Strowman himself made a huge tease regarding his next pro wrestling move. He took to his Twitter and strongly hinted at heading into Impact Wrestling,

“Remember in life if you’re gonna do something make sure you make a impact. Carve your name in stone!!! #Titan”

Ex WWE Star Braun Strowman Calls Himself A Pimp On Insta Birthday Post

Braun Strowman used to be on the top talents of the WWE roster, earlier this year but currently, he’s an alumni for the company. WWE held yet another round of cuts from the active roster in June and several big names were let go to the shock of the WWE Universe. The former Universal Champion was one of them just days after main-eventing a PPV event.

Braun Strowman already commented on his release in interviews who is now gearing up for the future. Meanwhile, WWE has lost one of the mainstays of the company who also used to be one of the top popular superstars of this generation. Following the release, the behemoth name changed his look and then showed fans just how seriously he is about his physique. He is pretty jacked up while waiting to dance inside the squared circle, yet again.

In the meantime, Braun Strowman has celebrated his 38th birthday just a few days ago. In an Instagram post, it was seen that he was surrounded by several women while sitting on a chair. He proceeded to call himself a pimp in that photo as he opted to channel the romeo vibes inside him,

“38 ain’t too bad!!!! #AdamsAngels #ItsHardOutHereForAPimp #LivingBestLife #MLMR @mlifemrules”

Braun Strowman commented on PWI top 500 list

PWI recently dropped their list of top 500 male wrestlers and AEW World Champion Kenny Omega topped the list. Some WWE fans were a bit upset that Roman Reigns should’ve been on that spot while former WWE Superstar Braun Strowman also made the list. It was surprising that he was kept at the top part of the list.

The former Monster Among Men tweeted out a little message to fans as he gloated about his high placement on that PWI list despite the fact that he didn’t get to wrestle half of this year,
“Top 30 and only wrestled half the year!!! Think about that!!!”

We’ll have to wait and see what’d be next for Braun Strowman. He has a pay-per-view match scheduled against EC3 at the “Free The Narrative II: The Monster In Us All” event. But after that, he’s nothing really significant to fill up his schedule.

Reports claim that Impact Wrestling is interested to sign Braun Strowman, and he is asking for $20k per appearance to work indie gigs.

WWE Reportedly Interested In Bringing Back Braun Strowman

WWE is reportedly showing some interest in bringing Braun Strowman back under their banner. It shocked the world that a top star like him was released from the contract, all of a sudden with no prior hint. Now, it appears that move was a premature one and just like Zelina Vega, the former Universal Champion could find his way back to the company.

It was noted in a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that WWE is interested in a Braun Strowman return, down the road. The idea was just amped up especially after the recent AEW signings which project that CM Punk and Daniel Bryan are heading to the WWE’s rival brand. Vince McMahon and Co are also likely to make a couple of signing that should make some headlines.

Braun Strowman was released from WWE on June 2, who is reportedly under a 90-day non-compete clause that will make him a free agent on Tuesday, August 31. Previous reports also indicated that he could end up signing with AEW as there is interest from both sides. But since the seven-footer monster is believed to be an original WWE product, chances are still there that he could be back, onboard.

WWE recently released Braun Strowman merchandise

There is no word yet on if Braun Strowman is interested in going back to WWE as he has never spoken up on his future following his WWE release. Meanwhile, some Strowman merchandise was added to the WWE Shop. The website released two pieces of merchandise for him – a $27.99 “Monsters Are Real” muscle t-shirt, and a $27.99 “Monsters Are Real” tank top.

There’s no update on whether it was some sort of error, or miscommunication, or WWE has actually been showing some interest to bring him back.

A few days ago, Braun Strowman was in attendance in a bare-knuckle boxing event in Tampa, Florida. The promotion, Bare Knuckle FC, tweeted out a photo of Strowman and teased “Next BKFC signee?” The former WWE Superstar commented in his photo, “to say these fight were entertaining was an understatement!” He also thanked Dana Brooke and her fiancée, boxer Ulysses Diaz as they helped him in getting seats to the show.

Eric Bischoff Speaks On The Recent Releases

WWE Hall of Famer Eric Bischoff recently gave his view on the recent releases made by World Wrestling Entertainment.

Recently WWE released six of their active wrestlers from the roster. Among them Braun Strowman and Aleister Black were really shocking to know. The four other wrestlers that have been released from the roster where Lana, Buddy Murphy, Ruby Riott and Santana Garrett.

Eric Bischoff Speaks On The Recent Releases

The release of Braun Strowman and Aleister Black has to be one of the most shocking decisions ever taken by WWE. Braun Strowman is one of the biggest names in WWE right now, and he has been on the main events constantly for quite a long time. Release of Braun Strowman could never be expected by anyone.

Another shocking name among the wrestlers that have been released by the WWE has to be Aleister Black. WWE kept promoting his return via promo packages for months. He just made his return two weeks ago on SmackDown. Fans were expecting to see an amazing feud between Black and Big E.

Professional wrestling Legend Eric Bischoff recently spoke on 83 Weeks where he talked about the releases made by WWE. Here is what Eric Bischoff had to say;

“I think, if I’m involved in some of the decisions to try to get that stock price up, I’m looking at talent roster, which is a significant part of expenses in WWE. I’m thinking to myself, ‘Wait a minute, we’re not gonna be touring the same way we used to.

“I need to start making good decisions. We have 300 people under contract, perhaps that’s too many.’ Maybe there was a reason for it. Maybe the emergence of AEW a couple of years ago. The awareness of the unknown and not being sure what AEW was gonna mean or not sure what that impact was gonna be.

Eric Bischoff

“I would agree that locking up some talent, or perhaps paying more for that talent than I might otherwise pay, makes sense. But now we know what AEW is, and that’s not discouraging in any way. I think [WWE] probably went, ‘OK, we need to shore this business model up and make some adjustments.’ The world is a different place.

“I’m more convinced now than I was last week that what WWE is doing is aggressively managing their business model…..I think when the dust settles, we’re gonna see WWE stock price back to where it was pre-COVID and a new touring model that makes more sense in the long run. I don’t think WWE is going anywhere, at least not in the near future.”

Braun Strowman Defends WWE NXT Women’s Champion With Profanity Filled Tweet

Braun Strowman isn’t a WWE employee anymore after he was surprisingly released alongside five other superstars amid COVID-19 related budget cuts within the WWE. There is now some trying from Mark Henry to get the monstrous superstar in AEW. In the meantime, the seven-footer is still very much attached to a WWE product who went into a profanity-filled rant on Twitter to defend one of the current roster members from NXT.

It appears that Braun Strowman was paying attention during NXT TakeOver: In Your House 2021 that went down from the Capitol Wrestling Center, last night. He seemed to have enjoyed the Women’s Title match, the most who was rooting for the retaining champion. Raquel Gonzalez defeated Ember Moon in a singles contest after a bit of help came from her tag team partner Dakota Kai.

Braun Strowman posted a tweet in reply to something from the official WWE Twitter account as he said, “She could beat all the guys in NXT also!!!”

One fan tweeted out in reply to him saying: “Your pecs are bigger than hers.” The Monster Among Me didn’t like that comment as he wanted to hush that troll with a return tweet saying: “And her d*cks bigger than yours p*ssy!.” In another post, he mentioned that Raquel can use former NXT Women’s Champion Io Shirai as a toothpick.

Braun Strowman sent a warning via Twitter

Braun Strowman later tweeted a stern warning to all his haters: “Don’t come on my page trying to throw shade then delete your post like a like baby back bitch!!!! #BabyD*ckBoy” While his support toward Raquel Gonzalez appeared to be real, he may haven’t fired those tweets filled with slang if he would have still been a WWE Superstar. But he’s free from the contract who can now do whatever he wants. Those tweets also kept him trending on Twitter during TakeOver.

As reported earlier, Braun Strowman was released from a $1.2 million WWE contract which only a few top superstars have received from the company. Perhaps, nobody will pay him that much other than Vince McMahon’s company. The lucrative amount was also a reason why WWE let him go of the contract.

PW Insider recently came up with an updated report mentioning that Braun Strowman is charging $20k to $25k to get booked around the indie scene for the future (he can only make appearances after his WWE no-compete clause would be over).

“Strowman’s manager Nick Antocelli has quoted “20-25K” for a three hour appearance to multiple promoters that have reached out with their interest in Strowman in making appearances.”

Booker T Gives His View On The Release Of Braun Strowman

Former 5 times WCW World Heavyweight Champion and two times WWE Hall of Famer Booker T recently gave his view on the shocking release of the former WWE Universal champion Braun Strowman.

Recently WWE released six of their active wrestlers from the roster. Two of the most shocking name from those 6 individuals are Braun Strowman and Aleister Black. Aleister Black’s release has to be the most shocking of them all. His return has been teased via promo packages for months, and just after two weeks of he finally made his long awaited return, he has been released.

Booker T Gives His View On The Release Of Braun Strowman

The release of Braun Strowman is equally shocking. Since the very first day of his arrival to the main roster, he has been treated as a big main event star. He has been portrayed as an Unstoppable force, whom even the almighty Brock Lesnar could not be easily.

He won one WWE Universal Championship and fans expected a lot more to come. Even there were rumours that he would be having some main event non title feuds with several main event stars. But nobody expected Braun Strowman could be released like this.

Former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Booker T recently spoke on this matter on the Hall of Fame podcast where he said;

Braun Strowman

“It definitely made me go, ‘Wow, Braun Strowman’.  Then I started looking at it from a business perspective.  If it’s true, the rumors out there are saying Braun Strowman had a huge contract and he’s making a lot of money.  If they’re doing budget cuts, that’s the one thing you’re going to be thinking about.

“Who do we really need?  Who’s the guy that we really need here to keep this thing running.  Take nothing away from Braun Strowman.  He was an enigma.  He was a guy that was somewhat of a throwback to the guys that did it once before him.  Looking at Braun Strowman, even being the enigma that he was, it was hard to match Braun Strowman up with more than two or three guys on the roster.  I can be wrong.

“There again, he was like a throwback to the way the wrestler was back in the day.  The thing is, nothing against him as a wrestler or anything, but just think about it.  In Japan back in the day, it was the battle of the giants, the Stan Hansens of the world.  The Big Van Vaders of the world.  If you look at the layout of Japan now, it’s totally different.

Braun Strowman

“The wrestlers are totally different.  The way they wrestle now is totally different.  That’s the only thing that I’m saying about that right there.  Don’t think I’m trying to throw any shade or anything like that.  There again, you look at the guys, and you say, ‘Who are the guys that we’re really going to need right now to fuel this thing to take us to the next level and take us to where we want to be.’

“Is Braun Strowman one of the guys?  Obviously they didn’t think he was one of the guys, or it could have been something underlying that I don’t even know about as far as contract dispute,  maybe thinking the grass is greener on the other side, maybe it’s time for me to get up out of here.

“Maybe it’s one of those types of things.  I’m always thinking about a guy like Braun Strowman when he comes around, ‘Man, this is the guy that’s going to replace Kane for the next 20 years.  This is the guy that’s going to replace The Undertaker for the next 20 years.’  Think about it.  Those days are over.  Those days are well behind us.  They’re long gone and they will never, ever, come back.”

Braun Strowman: What Really Led To WWE Firing The Monster Among Men

Professional Wrestling universe was more than shocked after WWE announced that they have released Braun Strowman from the contract. He was a top guy on the roster who competed in the main event scene, even last month during the Wrestlemania Backlash PPV event. The firing came only two weeks after that which raised several questions including the one where people believe that WWE is setting up the company for a sale.

Coming back to Braun Strowman, we have received some updates on what could have led to the big man’s departure from the company. It was previously reported that the seven-footer was making 7 figures a year with WWE. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter specifically mentioned that he was making $1.2 million, per year. That was a huge base salary on the main roster via the lucrative contract.

This salary figure kept him only behind the other top stars like Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, or AJ Styles. It was noted that Braun Strowman was under the assumption that Vince McMahon would never fire him. He signed a huge long-term deal intact until 2023 who felt safe under that. Then he made a huge mistake by not inserting a “no cut clause,” something he could have probably received at the time of the signing.

Braun Strowman’s lucrative contract worked against him

The bottom line is that the huge salary amount worked against him and led to his departure,

“His salary worked against him and one person noted he made a huge mistake in negotiations because when he signed his new deal, he was considered a hot commodity and if he pushed for it, probably could have gotten a no-cut contract that a few of the bigger names have.”

Braun Strowman: What Really Led To WWE Firing The Monster Among Men 46

Braun Strowman has always been a top-tier guy at the time when he signed the deal with WWE in 2019. AEW was opening at that point and WWE wanted to lock their stars down in longer deals, no matter what. So the Monster Among Men definitely received special treatment, back then.

As of now, the assumption is that WWE has brought in Commander Azeez and Omos on the roster and as a result, Braun Strowman was no longer considered to be the biggest guy on the roster. He was also believed to be ‘two years past his peak’ by the management, as noted by The Observer.
