PWInsider is reported that Strowman is asking for a lot of money for an independent wrestling booking, which is said to be in the five-figure range:
“We have heard from independent promoters that reached out to Braun Strowman that the asking price is currently in the five-figure range. We are told that Strowman is pretty set financially and doesn’t need to immediately run out and do bookings, but if a promoter comes along and meets the right price, that’s a different story.”
Strowman’s last WWE deal was worth $1.2 million per year.
