If fans have learned one thing, it’s not pissing off the Monster Among Men. One way to keep a guy like Braun Strowman happy is to offer him the type of term and money he likes as a performer in WWE. It appears the company found the right combination.
Strowman took to Instagram to share the news he’s signed a four-year contract extension with the WWE.
Strowman announced Wednesday, using the account under his real name, Adam Scherr, “Well, I’m sure more than a few of you will like this announcement! Here’s to four more years being the hardest-working and best big man in the whole damn industry, and working for the greatest promotion in the world, the WWE.”
More Monster in WWE
Despite the fact Strowman has spent a good chunk of his WWE career being overlooked for championships, he’s still undoubtedly one of the company’s biggest stars and most recognizable characters. Like Andre the Giant before him, perhaps WWE figures he doesn’t need a title to make him a star. They’re probably right.
That said, something tells us this new contract virtually guarantees he get some more consideration.
Speculation is that new Executive Director Paul Heyman has taken a keen interest in promoting the monstrous side of Strowman’s character. If so, this contract extension comes at a great time. Add to that, WWE is handing out money so stars don’t jump to a promotion like AEW and logic would suggest Strowman did pretty well financially here.
Good for the Monster Among Men. He’s probably now got a monster of a contract to go with his character and he’s certainly earned it.
