According to the report, some of the released talent had requested for a release. It is not knowm if Strowman was among them. He was reportedly “very private about negotiating the deal until it was finalized.”
Strawman is a a one-time Intercontinental Champion, a two-time RAW Tag Team Champion, the 2019 Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal winner, the Greatest Royal Rumble winner, and the 2018 Men’s Money In the Bank winner.
It will be interesting to see where he goes from year. He could realistically be a big name in any promotion he chooses to join. He has also previously espressed an interest in participating in body building competitions. For now though, he will first have to get through his 90-day non-compete clause.
