WWE superstar Adam Scherr, better known by his ring name, Braun Strowman, voiced his disapproval towards colleagues who leak confidential details from behind the scenes to wrestling tabloids, known as "dirt sheets." As reported by Felix Upton from Ringside News, Strowman, during an Instagram Live session, responded to fans' curiosity about backstage happenings with apparent contempt for those who compromise the secrecy of the business.
When asked about the insider gossip, he retorted, "Like, everyone asking me behind-the-scenes questions about wrestling, like, give me a break. I don't know any of that stuff, and wrestlers who stooge off to the dirt sheets are cash." "Dirt sheets" have a long-standing history in professional wrestling, functioning as a channel to leak privileged information from the industry's heart.
These leaks, occasionally coming from the wrestlers themselves, are devoured by ardent followers eager for exclusive news. However, the divulgence of confidential details, although common in many sectors, often taints the entertainment experience by revealing surprises or disseminating false information.
Strowman's Swift Rise in WWE
Strowman, 39, transitioned from strongman competitions to professional wrestling when he penned a developmental deal with WWE in 2013. His muscular frame and commanding presence saw him making his WWE main roster debut just two years later in 2015.
Despite being a relative newcomer, he made his mark quickly, securing his legacy as a one-time Universal Champion, Intercontinental Champion, and two-time Raw Tag Team Champion before his unforeseen release in 2021. Known as the "Monster Among Men," Strowman returned triumphantly to the WWE Universe in September.
Shortly after his return, he formed a formidable alliance with the agile Ricochet, contributing to the tag team division's excitement. However, adversity struck earlier this month when Strowman revealed via an Instagram video that he had surgery to fuse the C4 and C5 vertebrae in his neck.
Despite the daunting recovery journey, the wrestling behemoth resolved to step back into the ring once fully healed, reassuring his fans that he was down but far from out.
