Adam Scherr, who was formerly known as Braun Strowman in WWE, is keeping his options open. He says he’s not interested in signing a full-time contract with any professional wrestling company right now.

“I’m not looking for a full-time signing,” Strowman told “I’ll put that right there and nip that in the bud right off the get-go. I’m looking to enjoy some of my time. I love the art of professional wrestling and eight years with WWE was very time-consuming. I was very, very blessed with the opportunities that I had.

“I got to see the world and all these things. But it’s been nice having these last six months to take a step back and breathe for a second. I forgot about all these little things in life that mean so much. Time flies by and you forget about it. You don’t get a chance to do it.

“So I’m catching up on spending time with my family and loved ones. Working on my mental health and my physical health. Working on the tolls of eight years of being a WWE superstar. Getting a little reset on that and looking to have fun. Being full-time on TV every week, I’m not going to lie, it’s stressful.

“It’s nice not having that added stress element every week. Right now, I’m just looking to enjoy my time. Have fun, sell out some buildings, raise some money for some charities, and just go out there and do what I do, and that’s put smiles on people’s faces.”

Adam Scherr has been involved in EC3’s “Control The Narrative” group. Scherr appeared alongside EC3 at Ring Of Honor’s Final Battle pay-per-view last month. Scherr has worked a handful of dates for some independent promotions since he became a free agent.

Adam Scherr was released by WWE last June. He’s a former WWE Universal Champion, Intercontinental Champion, and two-time RAW Tag Team Champion.
