Backstage Update on Braun Strowman’s WWE Release

As per Fightful Select, Braun Strowman’s release was not a surprise for the talent close to the situation. The report says Strowman’s $1 million per year contract was one of the reasons that led to WWE parting ways with him.

Strowman signed a new four-year deal in 2019, reportedly worth $1.1 million per year. The sources claimed that Strowman knew his worth during that contract negotiation and was very private about the contract talks until it was finalized.

WWE has now realized that Strowman’s contract value is high, and they decided to part ways with him as they look for more cost-cutting. It is also believed that the decision regarding Strowman’s release came in recent days since he was part of the WWE Championship triple threat match at WrestleMania Backlash two weeks back.
