Braun Strowman took major offense to Buff Bagwell making fun of his new independent wrestling home. Bagwell joked on Twitter that he thought he just joined Control Your Narrative, the widely-ridiculed new promotion formed by EC3, but that it was just gas. Strowman followed up with a mug shot and an article about Bagwell’s previous DUI arrest.

Buff didn’t take the stuff lying down. Bagwell called Strowman (who now wrestles as Adam Scherr, his real name) a clown. The Buffster also posted Braun’s mugshot after he was arrested for DUI while operating a boat in 2013.

“Should I have done it on the water? @Adamscherr99 something about glass houses. I’m open about my past mistakes, and tend not to bring others up against them. You got offended because I made a joke about something I didn’t even know you were part of because I didn’t know you.”

Strowman initially called Buff Bagwell a mark for asking for a photo with him at a recent event. Bagwell explained that his agent asked him to do it. Strowman then denied that he got anything more than a ticket and said the image was fake.


Pro wrestling is filled with wild drama behind the scenes. This could be the first time two major stars ever exchanged mugshots in a Twitter war. After Bagwell’s response, Strowman backed off and apologized.

Buff Bagwell agreed that the war of words should end there. He pointed out that even though they had squashed the beef, they should always be listening to the fans. In the end, cooler heads prevailed.
