Braun Strowman is back in WWE after Triple H re-signed the former black sheep of the Wyatt Family. Since his return to the WWE landscape, Strowman battled Omos, and he’s already stirred up a tremendous amount of controversy along the way.
Ringside News was told by a tenured member of the WWE team that Braun Strowman is notorious for showing up late and leaving early. This is not the only issue that the Monster Of All Monsters is having backstage.
We were also told that, “some are questioning if he’s serious about this run.” It turns out that this questioning is due to the reasons listed above and “more just regarding his ego and attitude.”
Braun Strowman was notorious during his last run for putting his foot in his mouth on social media. His comments about indie wrestlers losing work during the pandemic caused storm, and he was eventually a free agent, left to find what gigs he could that would meet his ridiculous demands.
At the time, PW Insider reported that, “Strowman’s manager Nick Antocelli has quoted ’20-25K’ for a three-hour appearance to multiple promoters that have reached out with their interest in Strowman in making appearances.” Bookers were also required to pay for first-class travel, food, and two nights of hotel accommodations.
Strowman was making $1.2 million year with WWE during his first run. We’re not sure how much Braun Strowman is making this time around in WWE, but he is certainly confident.
After declaring that his match against Omos at WWE Crown Jewel was five-star affair, he also took a shot at “flippy-floppy” acts. That drew another firestorm of controversy, both from inside and outside the WWE locker room.
We’ll have to see what Triple H has in store for Braun Strowman this time around, but staying off social media might do him some serious favors.
