WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair has suggested he has irons in the fire with Braun Strowman amid rumours that Strowman is set for a WWE return.
Per Fightful Select, internal talks from WWE have discussed the possibility of a return for ‘The Monster Among Men’. WWE sources noted how impressed they were with Braun Strowman for looking “ring ready”. He’s visibly improved his look since leaving the sports entertainment giant, even looking better now than when he was signed.
At the time of his WWE release, Braun Strowman was nearing the end of his multi-million-dollar contract. He’d reportedly played “hardball” during contract negotiations pre-release, which is perhaps what led to him ultimately being cut.
“Well, I like Braun a lot. I haven’t spent any time with him, I’ve seen him once or twice, I saw him at WrestleCon, but I haven’t spent any time with him since he left. We’re kind of working on a project together that hasn’t really come to fruition yet.”
“It’s a promotional scheme, and somebody brought it to me, it’s legitimate, but we just haven’t gotten to work on it yet. So I don’t know. He’ll probably have to make a decision whether he wants to do that, which could potentially be very lucrative or go back to WWE. But I like Braun personally.”
