EC3 revealed that Strowman knocked on his door because he was looking to control his narrative. Braun Strowman(real name Adam Scherr) is set to go head to head with EC3 on October 1. The match is being promoted for the show “Free The Narrative II: The Monster In Us All.” It turns out this would be the first match of Braun Strowman match since his WWE release if he is not booked to wrestle in September.

Speaking with Cageside Seats’ Shakiel Mahjouri, EC3 discussed how the match came into the programming. He spoke about the match and said the former WWE Universal Champion is looking to control his narrative. Here is what the former NXT star had to say:

“This match came together because this man knocked on my door. I think you saw the video that we uploaded this week. That is actually the the extended ending of our very first Free the Narrative feature. That was a stringer ending to our first feature. Nobody really caught onto exactly who it really was but now we get to tell you exactly who it is. Adam Scherr is looking to control his narrative and I’m the man he came to.”

Where could Braun Strowman be headed next?

Strowman was released by WWE on June 2, 2020 and he was under WWE’s 90 days non-compete clause in his contract. However, the clause expired on August 31 and he is now all set to battle it out with EC3.

Reports state that Strowman could be making a move to IMPACT Wrestling. In one of Jade Chung’s recent Twitch streams, IMPACT Wrestling’s executive vice president dropped a hint at Strowman’s arrival.

Moreover, Strowman might not be the only addition to IMPACT Wrestling’s roster. The former WWE star Buddy Murphy could also be headed to the promotion. His 90-day non-competitive clause expired the same date as Strowman’s. We will see where the stars end up at as Strowman’s move to AEW also can’t be ruled out.
