WWE Superstar Braun Strowman has double-downed on his recent controversial comments by claiming that he isn't being paid during the Coronavirus.
Responding to his recent comments on Twitter, Strowman replied to a fan asking how he'd feel if he wasn't being paid during the Coronavirus.
I am and it sucks but I’m still working with charity’s to help get funds and supplies to people that can’t physically can’t go out and do it.— Braun Strowman (@BraunStrowman) March 20, 2020
The former Intercontinental Champion later clarified that he is not being paid at all during this time.
I get paid when I work. Private contractor. So nothing is coming in at the moment— Braun Strowman (@BraunStrowman) March 20, 2020
Last week, Strowman criticized independent wrestlers who have lost bookings due to the Coronavirus in a since-deleted Instagram post, saying "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."
Uh, dude, I'm pretty sure you can ask the office to pay you your downside as a weekly salary. There are others who were doing it even before the outbreak, especially if they're on a newer, AEW era (more lucrative) contract like you are, having just re-signed in July.— David Bixenspan (@davidbix) March 20, 2020
