Braun Strowman was one of the most shocking names to be released from WWE earlier this year. Braun Strowman already commented on his release as he was one of the major stars in the company.

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 the difficulties of working in WWE, most notably fans on the internet who constantly criticized him.

He took the opportunity to put all the dorks on the internet on blast for making him hate himself and spread negativity.


“When I started hating myself and realizing I wasn’t happy [is when I knew I needed to leave WWE]. And a lot of it boils down to just what I mentioned earlier about having to be on all the time. And the criticism from the f**king fans, and it’s not even the fans, the fans aren’t the ones. It’s the dorks on the internet that opinion and couch cushion book shows, and do all this stuff, and just non-stop talk s**t about what we’re trying to do.I didn’t see any of you guys getting cast and thrown into the deep end of the pool, you know, in the middle of a pandemic when the whole world is in a frenzy not knowing what was going on.

I jumped on a jet and flew back. I had no idea they were putting me over to beat Goldberg. I came back because people need an outlet, people need a way to check out from reality, and by me going to work and me being selfless and putting my health, my risk on the line while not knowing what was going on – I knew in the back of my mind, yeah, I’m not going to make everybody happy. You can’t make everybody happy, but there are people sitting at home that are scared, they don’t know what’s going on in the world and if I can take them out of that reality for three minutes while I’m out there wrestling, then I did my job. Because at the end of the day, that’s what it’s about. People watch wrestling to get caught up in it and forget about the bulls**t that’s going on in their lives. And having to listen, and hear, and read all this crap about this sucks, and this, and blah, blah, blah.”

Strowman is said to make an announcement regarding his pro wrestling future very soon, so it remains to be seen which pro wrestling company would up taking him.
