On June 2nd, WWE released a total of 6 Stars, including Lana, Murphy, Aleister Black, Braun Strowman, Santana Garrett and Ruby Riott reportedly due to budget cuts and their 90-day non-compete clause with the WWE is set to expire on Tuesday, August 31, which means that they will be able to sign with other pro wrestling promotions only after this date. Speaking of Braun Strowman, it was previously reported by Jeff Whalen that WWE has interest in bringing Strowman back to the company, which is due to recent reports that AEW has signed or is close to signing both Daniel Bryan and CM Punk, but there's no word yet on if Strowman is interested in returning to the WWE.
Bare Knuckle FC, which is an MMA promotion, recently took to Twitter and posted a photo of the former WWE Star, with the caption, “Next BKFC signee?,” potentially teasing that Strowman may sign with them down the road. Strowman attended a Bare Knuckle Boxing Event this past Friday in Tampa, Florida.
Strowman took to his Instagram and commented on attending the boxing event this past Friday. He noted that saying these fights were entertaining was an understatement. He also thanked Dana Brooke and her fiance, boxer Ulysses Diaz, for getting him seats to the show.
