Braun Strowman was among the names to be released by WWE today.
Fightful Select reports that talent in the company was not really surprised by Strowman’s exit because he had a big contract with the company.
Strowman signed a “monster” deal in 2019 after negotiations went down to the wire that summer.
It was said Strowman ‘knew his worth’ and his deal was worth over $1 million per year and was originally set to run through 2023. He was ‘very private’ about the negotiations until after they were completed.
