Adam Scherr’s Instagram
He’d have been a huge get for a promotion like All Elite Wrestling, who for all the talent on their roster doesn’t have very many larger-than-life performers. That’s probably part of why it was a priority for WWE to lock up Braun Strowman (real name Adam Scherr) before there was any drama about his contract status.

It would have been a pretty big shock if a guy who’s a product of WWE Developmental, and who despite his only WWE title reign being a brief tag title run with an actual child has never seemed anything but happy with his role in the company, left WWE.

On his personal Instagram today (July 16), the Monster Among Men broke the news that he’ll be cashing Vince McMahon’s checks until at least 2023:

Braun turns 36 this September, so give or take a few months, he’ll be 40 when this four year deal runs its course.

And if he’s happy, and his bosses are happy... well, we’re happy for them.

Congrats, big man. Look forward to watching you SMASH stuff and dudes for the foreseeable future.

Yeah...

Vince wants to keep his "Big Show 2.0"

Remember SummerSlam 2016 when the entire wrestling
world was ready for Strowman to be Universal Champion?

I do...

They can always use him for these strongmen spots, but this guy can't wrestle and he can't cut promos, he has no charisma and he looks like a lumberjack.. Never understood his appeal.

Just have him flip over shit I guess.

That's a fair call...& I originally didn't "get" Strowman
when he first started his singles run separate from
The Wyatt Family...and you make valid points...BUT...
the guy was over like rover at one point.

He got over simply by being a giant brute that wrecked
shit & squashing people. He didn't really need to talk
because he had that "Monster" gimmick & he was
protected.

Now...well...he's nothing really...

All that momentum was lost & he failed in his cash in
attempt...so he's just "damaged goods" at this point.

Speaking of Strowman...where is Lars Sullivan?

Wasn't Sullivan going to be the new "Strowman"?

He was massively over, maybe the most over in WWE.. I liked him back then to, until I realized he's just not that good..

They do a very good job at hiding his weaknesses and just use his strength.

I would prefer he goes back to bodybuilding and strongman competitions.

I think Lars is injured, he's suppose to be out most of the year.

SummerSlam 2016 was his moment...
watch that four way main event & just
observe how over Strowman was.

Its a shame the entire roster isn't booked like that.

That's fair...

I wish Alexa & Carmella went & did acting &/or modeling.

It's rare someone that big gets so over, then they went and fucked it up.

Carmella would fail so hard at acting, she would be like the Bella Twins.

Alexa might do well, but I prefer to see her in AEW.. I'm just very anti-WWE and anyone who works there right now.

Alexa would totally get outworked by the women's roster though and she's probably happy in WWE since she gets treated like a Queen.

Yep...typical WWE booking.

If you aren't Le$nar or Reigns...you aren't getting shit.

Well...she can be a bikini model then.

No.

Just No.

100% Yes.

Strowman could of won the Universal Title at one point and it would of seemed like the right move at the time. I dont a title run would of helped him, but who knows. This 4 years will be the defining moments for his character. Will he grab a brass ring perhaps???
