Free The Narrative is a series that tells original and personal stories with some of professional wrestling’s biggest names, and those yet known.

“Free The Narrative” is completely independent of any wrestling promotion. Set to an original score, FTN blends professional wrestling, cinema, and harsh reality in what will become the true definition of “creative freedom” for an industry that desperately needs it, and any performer that truly seeks it.

To #ControlYourNarrative is to “Tell Your Story.”

In “Free The Narrative” those stories are told.

Since leaving WWE, Strowman has repeatedly been linked with a move to IMPACT Wrestling. It was recently suggested that Strowman would be heading to the company alongside Buddy Murphy, who is now known as Buddy Matthews.

Writing in the the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer noted that IMPACT Executive Vince President Scott D’Amore had earmarked the pair with a move to the company. Strowman himself later appeared to tease the move on social media.
