Earlier this year, WWE performed several batches of talent cuts. Among the most shocking names released was former Universal Champion Braun Strowman. Ever since Strowman was released, fans have speculated about where the Monster Among Men would land.
It has been reported that Strowman (real name Adam Scherr) has been in contact with both IMPACT Wrestling and All Elite Wrestling since his release, and we can now add a third company to that list.
MLW founder Court Bauer spoke on a media call earlier today, where he confirmed that MLW had conversations with Strowman, as well as Bo Dallas, but couldn’t agree to a deal to bring either man into the company.
“So we had conversations with [Bo Dallas]. Right now, I think he seems more interested in farming. I understand having to get recharged for another run, but right now it seems he’s more interested in doing some farming, and I don’t knock him for it. We did talk to Braun Strowman for a little bit and didn’t come to terms with him on a deal. I can’t say whether they’re going to be headed or not I don’t know, but we’re looking and evaluating talent all the time and see if it’s a good fit from a product’s point of view with our fans. Will it mesh and from what noticed is that they are some names that are big stars, high profiled guys that come in and they’re embraced by our fans and there are others that are like, yea we know they’re buzzy, they’re coming to form a big company but this isn’t their jam so its a really delicate thing. You’re a chef, certain ingredients will work and certain ones won’t, every scenario is different.”
MLW’s Fightland show will air tomorrow night (October 7) on Fite TV. You can see the results of the show here.
