Adam Scherr reflects on his future
He said, “I'm not looking for a full-time contract. If I get any offers, I'll nip it in the bud right away.
I'm looking to enjoy some of my time. I love the art of wrestling and eight years with WWE have been very time-consuming. I've been very, very lucky with the opportunities I've had. I got to travel the world and do many other things.
But it was nice to have these six months for me. I have forgotten so many little things in life that mean a lot. Time flies and you forget it. You don't have the ability to do anything. So I'm making up time to spend it with my family and loved ones.
I work on my mental and physical health. At the moment I just want to try to have fun. Having a full-time contract and being on TV every week, I don't lie, is stressful. It's nice not to have that stress every week. Right now, I'm just trying to enjoy my time.
I collect some money for some charities and that makes people smile”. On your own mental health: “Learning to actually discuss your problems is important. Everyone has problems and it is terrible to ignore your feelings.
This can never work. You can do it for a while, but eventually, you ignore so many things that sooner or later you will explode. This is what happened to me. Your friends, your family, your loved ones. This is the most important thing about human beings.
I want to be remembered for something other than just beating people in a wrestling ring." Adam Scherr, in his ring name Braun Strowman, was touted to be the company's next big star when he penned the new deal in 2019.
He confirmed the contract length was four years in an Instagram post that was captioned: "Well, I'm sure more than a few of you will like this announcement! Here's to four more years of being the hardest-working and best big man in the whole damn industry, and working for the greatest promotion in the world, the WWE."
Braun Strowman has been on WWE TV regularly and was also involved in the WWE Championship match at WrestleMania Backlash. He took on WWE Champion Bobby Lashley and Drew McIntyre in a triple-threat match but did not manage to pull off the win.
