When WWE released former Universal Champion Braun Strowman, a large collective of fans immediately got excited to see what he can do elsewhere. The other major company in the United States is All Elite Wrestling, making a natural home for someone with the skill set of Strowman. Now with one of their recent signings, he has someone pushing hard for AEW to bring him in.
Mark Henry Reveals There Is Interest On Both Sides
This someone is The World’s Strongest Man, Mark Henry. Henry spent a lot of time in WWE alongside Strowman, even having his final singles match against him in 2016. Long known as an important backstage mentor and talent scout, Henry was the one who brought Strowman into WWE in the first place. Other scouted names that Henry brought into WWE include Bianca Belair & Apollo Crews.
Now, he’s keen on doing something similar with AEW. Strowman is now an established name after training in WWE, and perfect for AEW to use as a top star. Henry has also revealed that there is interest on both sides. While speaking with TMZ Sports, he’d reveal the following.
“It’s not an all Mark Henry decision but there already is interest on both sides. So, hopefully by the time he’s allowed to wrestle in August, I think the middle of August, then we can have a serious conversation about contractual things of that nature. Right now, there’s interest on both sides.”
Braun Strowman Is One More Potential Big Debut For All Out
This comes following news that it’s expected that the former Aleister Black will sign with AEW. They both got released on the same day, meaning they’re done with their 90 day non-compete clause on August 31st, 2021. This is just ahead of the September AEW PPV, All Out.
With an episode of Dynamite and PPV right after this date, we can expect a few surprises in the mix for those days. Another one is Ruby Riot/Heidi Lovelace, who is the expected wildcard at that PPV’s Casino Battle Royale. If Strowman or Black aren’t lured back to WWE, expect to see them in AEW around that time.
