The former Braun Strowman is weighing his wrestling options while taking into account his passion projects.
Braun Strowman was one of the main players in WWE when he was released on Wednesday, June 2. At the previous WWE pay-per-view, WrestleMania Backlash, he was featured in the WWE Championship match. At WrestleMania 37, he was featured in a steel cage match against Shane McMahon. The year before at WrestleMania, he captured the WWE Universal Championship from WWE Hall of Famer, Bill Goldberg.
Now, Braun Strowman is mostly looking to pursue all of his last passions while still being able to entertain the audience in the way that they are accustomed to.
When asked about landing in AEW by Sports Illustrated, Adam Scherr revealed that he has discussed with his agent potential landing spots in wrestling, and for him, it is about finding the balance between the wrestling ring and life outside of it.
"Yeah, we've sat down and discussed stuff like that with my agent and things like that. We're just trying to find a fit now where everything kind of will works together since now there are so many things that I'm working on in my personal life, I don't have as much time to devote to the full-time schedule to wrestle now.
"So, it's trying to find somewhere where I'll be able to land in there to show up, have fun and entertain the people, but still be able to work on my side projects along the way."
One of those passion projects is a new mental health app he is working on called “Discuss.” Scherr had previously discussed struggles with mental health during a WWE documentary.
"Also, I've been working on a mental health app that I have coming out called "Discuss." One of my business partners, John Paul DeJoria, who is one of the founders of Paul Mitchell and used to own Patron, he's one of the backers of it. It's something that is very, very important to me that will be launching very, very soon.
"It's an app subscription on your phone that gives you licensed, certified mental health professionals in the palm of your hand. You can FaceTime, you can phone call, you can text message for those days when you don't have someone to reach out to. When you're having a bad day, you're on the ledge and you need somebody to talk to. It gives people an opportunity to have someone to talk to so they don't do irrational things. It's such a stigma in the world."
