Struggle IMPACT could aim for fences with its new target in the free agent market.
According to Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful Select, IMPACT Wrestling is “strongly” interested in signing Adam Scherr, formerly known as Braun Strowman to WWE.
Ross Sapp reports that the company has been pushing to acquire Scherr for “more than a month,” and there is internal belief that the two sides will come to an agreement soon. The report points out that an actual deal has not been confirmed, although IMPACT sources believe it will end up on the list. Ross Sapp also reported that Scherr had at least spoken with AEW before.
WWE released Strowman, a former Universal Champion, on June 2 in what was considered the most surprising cups among several. Strowman had been one of the company’s top stars for a few years, and he won the Money in the Bank Match and the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal, among other accomplishments.
Scherr was featured at EC3’s “Free The Narrative II” event this weekend, and the event marked his return to wrestling.
Scherr’s future has been rumored ever since, and although some reports have linked him to AEW, this new update offers some details on the market for his services.
