KEY POINTS

  • Mark Henry reveals he is trying to get Braun Strowman to join AEW
  • Henry wants to wrestle again but needs to get himself back into shape
  • Strowman is expected to work under a new ring name in AEW

Braun Strowman, whose real name is Adam Scherr, is not expected to be out of a job for long.

After getting released from WWE, most feel that the former Universal Champion is bound to be picked by another promotion soon. It appears that could soon happen at All Elite Wrestling (AEW).

The move to AEW would hardly be surprising. Being a promotion on the rise, it would only be a matter of time before this becomes official.

All that could be fast-tracked following word that another former WWE superstar has been working on bringing Strowman to AEW.

Mark Henry, currently serving as an analyst, coach, scout and mentor at AEW, mentioned that the “Monster Among Men” is at the top of the list of talent he wants to bring on board, TMZ Sports reported.

"Super high on my list," Henry said. "It's not an all Mark Henry decision, but there's already interest on both sides."

Although it will not rest on the shoulders of Henry, Strowman’s credentials should be more than enough to convince management to take him in.

For now, it has become a waiting game with Henry planning to have a serious talk with Strowman in August.

"Hopefully by the time he's allowed to wrestle in August, I think the middle of August, then we could have a serious conversation about contractual things of that nature, but right now there's interest on both sides. I love that dude," Henry stated.

Should a deal be made, Strowman would have to go by a different name. His ring name is still under the rights of WWE, but that is not seen as a major obstacle.

Aside from Strowman, Henry admitted that he still has the itch to perform in the wrestling ring.

"Not many wrestlers get to that, not many. Especially at a high level. I wanna be able to get there and hopefully by October I'll be at 100%," Henry bared.
