• Braun Strowman Says WWE Isn’t Paying Him Right Now

The coronavirus pandemic is hurting indy wrestlers as all indy shows have been shut down.

This has resulted in some indy wrestlers not having any job to pay their bills.

AEW wrestler Evil Uno made a post asking fans to help those indy wrestlers in need financially, and this didn’t sit well with WWE SmackDown Superstar Braun Strowman.

Strowman commented the following:

“Here we go with more of the somebody pay for my bills stuff. If you can’t afford to pay your bills maybe you should change professions. That’s why I quit strongman.

I loved it, but I couldn’t afford to live so instead of making a go fund me or a Patreon wanting someone else to take care of me I went out and worked harder than I ever have in my life to get to where I am. What happened to being accountable for your own actions????!!!

And for anyone that goes that’s easy for you to say you’re a WWE Superstar just FYI 7 years ago I moved to Florida with everything I owned in a Kio Soul with $150 to my name when I started this!!!”
