The 90-day non compete is up, and Braun Strowman, now Adam Scherr, is free to sign where he wants. Fightful has learned that there had been talks between Scherr and All Elite Wrestling, but of recent weeks we've actually heard that IMPACT Wrestling is heavily interested in bringing in the former WWE Universal Champion. We've got no details on if a deal is actually in place, but the word backstage at the most recent tapings in Nashville led to talent hearing of the company's interest in Scherr. He'll be a part of EC3's Free The Narrative II this weekend, as well.
Fightful has heard that the push to get Scherr in IMPACT Wrestling has gone on over a month, and that it isn't much of a secret internally.
Fightful talked to EC3 ahead of Free The Narrative 2, who revealed that some of the content for the show was actually filmed in late August. However, he told us that he was speaking to Adam Scherr, the former Braun Strowman, the day before his WWE release about the possibility of working on the production. EC3 noted that Scherr didn't specifically see the release coming, but things had been "rocky" and "tumultuous" here and there. Scherr told EC3 that he was so excited that he couldn't sleep due to the creativity surrounding Free The Narrative 2.
