Former WWE superstar Braun Strowman announced his post-WWE ring name as well as an appearance for a December wrestling show.
On Tuesday, former WWE superstar Braun Strowman (real name Adam Scherr) announced his post-WWE ring name as well as an appearance for a wrestling event in December.
Strowman took to Twitter and announced that he’ll wrestle as “The Titan” at the Dec. 4 “Blizzard Brawl” event in Waukesha, Wisconsin. The event will be held Waukesha County Expo Center. Strowman also noted that this is likely “the only show” he’ll be doing in the remainder of 2021:
Last week, it was reported that Strowman would be going by the “The Titan.” Many wrestling fans and pundits assumed that he would appear at the Impact Wrestling Bound for Glory pay-per-view on Saturday, but it never wound up transpiring. Days before the event, Strowman was seen meeting with Impact Executive Vice President Scott D’Amore.
Impact reportedly tried to bring in Strowman, Bray Wyatt (released on July 31) and Bronson Reed (released Aug. 6) for Saturday’s event. It should be noted that Wyatt’s 90-day non-compete clause with WWE doesn’t expire until this Friday.
Strowman was one of six WWE talents released on June 2, along with Aleister Black, Santana Garrett, Lana, Murphy and Ruby Riott. The 90-day non-compete clause of the former Universal Champion expired weeks ago, so he has been eligible to sign with a different promotion for a while now.
The 38-year-old Strowman wrestled his final match for WWE at WrestleMania Backlash on May 16. He faced off against Bobby Lashley and Drew McIntyre in a WWE Championship match, which The Almighty won by pinning The Monster Among Men.
As noted above, Strowman could have signed with another wrestling company several weeks ago. There surely isn’t a shortage of interest in the former Universal Champion and 2018 men’s Money in the Bank ladder match winner. It seems as though Strowman is happy to take his time and mull over the options before deciding where to sign next. His aforementioned tweet about not doing any other shows this year (outside of the Dec. 4 event) suggests that it could be a while until Strowman makes up his mind, too.
