Braun Strowman has already made fans interested in his next destination thanks to a series of posts over the past few months. Braun Strowman could be heading to Impact Wrestling and Strowman himself seemingly responded to the report.
While speaking with Control Your Narrative, Braun Strowman talked about his next step in his pro wrestling career. Strowman revealed that he turned down astronomical amounts of money from various pro wrestling companies.
This is because he simply wants to enjoy his life outside of pro wrestling and spend more quality time with his family and friends.
“Everything happens for a reason. One door closes and it’s unbelievable how many other doors have opened. So may different opportunities,” Strowman said. “I turned down a lot of money, like an astronomical amount of money to do this. There’s days where I friggin think about it and I’m like ‘holy s**t.’ Every three letter word corporation out there has made me an offer, talked to me about what I want to do moving forward. And I said ‘first and foremost, I have something that I want to do.’ One was this. Two was just having a chance to breathe and live. Like I said, I was unbelievably blessed for my time with WWE, but it was very time consuming. I went, in five years, I saw my parents eight times. I missed people’s funerals, I missed weddings, I missed births, I missed Christmas’, I missed Thanksgivings.
“The time was amazing, don’t get me wrong. But I’m still a human being, and I have needs when it comes to comfort. I’m very close with my parents, I’m very close with my family and my friends. So it’s not only being able to work with my friends on a project, being able to work on an app, being able to do all the other stuff that I have coming out very soon that I’ll be able to talk about more. But just being able to live and going back to my grassroots. And this was one of the biggest things to come out of the Narrative, was remembering who the f**k I was.”
Strowman is said to make an announcement regarding his pro wrestling future very soon, so it remains to be seen whether he will end up in Impact Wrestling or not.
