Like Ruby Riott, Buddy Murphy, Lana and others, Braun Strowman officially became a free agent yesterday (Aug. 31). Tuesday marked 90 days since they were released from WWE, meaning their non-compete period ended.

Strowman, now going by his real name Adam Scherr, teased an announcement at noon today. It was about his first post-WWE match, which will be on a show produced by his old friend EC3 under his Control Your Narrative banner. EC3 previously released a show called Free The Narrative where he faced Matt Cardona. Free The Narrative II is subtitled “The Monster In Us All”.

Here’s the teaser video, and a description of the show from

Are you born a monster? Or is it something you become?

After his shocking dismissal from the corporate wrestling realm, join Adam Scherr on a journey of self-discovery in his return to the ring when Scherr battles ec3 in “Free The Narrative II: The Monster In Us All.”

Is Scherr’s fight against ec3 and his #ControlYourNarrative mantra?

To take back #Control.
Fight for your #Freedom.
And find your #Purpose.

Or is Scherr’s fight against himself?

What will happen when this “monster” knocks on this “man’s” door?

Adam Scherr’s fight truly begins on 10/01/21.

“Free The Narrative II” will feature many more “names” and is the sequel to “Free The Narrative” featuring Matt Cardona vs ec3.

Free The Narrative is a series that tells original and personal stories with some of professional wrestling’s biggest names, and those yet known.

“Free The Narrative” is completely independent of any wrestling promotion. Set to an original score, FTN blends professional wrestling, cinema, and harsh reality in what will become the true definition of “creative freedom” for an industry that desperately needs it, and any performer that truly seeks it.

Scherr vs. EC3 on Free The Narrative II will stream Fri., Oct. 1. It’s available for purchase on Vimeo for $10.
