The pro wrestling world is going through a really hard time right now, as is the entire planet. The indie wrestling scene was going through a booming period, and now practically everything is shut down.
Evil Uno posted on Instagram suggesting that people help indie wrestlers who are out of work. This triggered Braun Strowman in a big way who unloaded on the idea.
Here we go with more of the somebody pay for my bills stuff. If you can’t afford to pay your bills maybe you should change professions. That’s why I quit strongman. I loved it, but I couldn’t afford to live so instead of making a go fund me or a Patreon wanting someone else to take care of me I went out and worked harder than I ever have in my life to get to where I am. What happened to being accountable for your own actions????!!!
He later commented saying:
And for anyone that goes that’s easy for you to say you’re a WWE Superstar just and and FYI 7 years ago I moved to Florida with everything I owned in a Kio Soul with $150 to my name when I started this!!!
Braun Strowman did bet on himself and make it, but he didn’t do it during a global pandemic.
The coronavirus creates a different kind of situation that nobody has ever experienced before. We can only hope that people do what they need to stop the spread of this awful virus so everyone can get back to life as usual soon.
