He’s worth it? Several WWE wrestlers have been released from the company this year and the series of moves have changed the way the company looks. That is the kind of thing that you do not get to see take place very often, but it makes for some interesting changes. Some of these changes involve the wrestlers themselves, and now we know how one of them seems to be moving forward.
According to PWInsider.com, former WWE star Braun Strowman’s asking price for an independent wrestling appearance is in the “five figure range”. Strowman has responded to the report, saying that he has not spoken to anyone about bookings and “thanking” the reports for causing confusion. However, PWInsider is standing by their reporting, saying that Strowman’s agent has quoted the price of, $20,000 – $25,000 for a three hour Strowman appearance, plus first class airfare, two nights hotel stay, plus meals and transportation.
Let me just get this FYI out. I have not spoken to anyone about bookings. But if you wanna talk business the email to my agent is in my bio. Thank for any confusion you may be reading online.

Strowman might be worth a look. Check out some of his time in WWE:
Opinion: Assuming PWInsider’s reporting is accurate, that is quite the game of semantics from Strowman. Saying that he hasn’t talked to anyone about a booking and acting like this is all nonsense if his agent has been the one doing the talking is a pretty big stretch. There is nothing wrong with a former WWE World Champion demanding a high price, but what is the benefit in possibly lying about the whole thing? There is always the chance that the quote is inaccurate, but I’m not sure what the benefit would be to deny something that isn’t completely unreasonable.
Where will Strowman go next? Where do you want him to appear? Let us know in the comments below.
