Braun Strowman returns to WWE on Raw

Strowman had been released by the company in June 2021.

Braun Strowman has returned to WWE. 

Strowman re-debuted with the company on Monday's Raw, interrupting a fatal four-way match to crown number one contenders to the Undisputed Tag Team titles. Strowman laid waste to all eight competitors in the match, rendering it a no contest. 

Strowman's imminent return had been reported last week, and came to fruition on Monday. 

A former WWE Universal Champion, Strowman was part of a series of mass releases by the company in June 2021. He had since been part of the Control Your Narrative promotion, and appeared as part of a CYN stable at Ring of Honor's Final Battle event in December 2021. 

Strowman had worked just a handful of independent dates since his WWE release, last wrestling in July at an IWC event in Pennsylvania. 

Originally signed by WWE in 2013, Strowman made his in-ring debut on the NXT brand in 2014. He was fast-tracked to the main roster, wrestling just seven matches before his first televised bout on Raw in August 2015 as part of The Wyatt Family.
