Braun Strowman is probably the biggest star on WWE Raw after topping all the storylines on the show. He has been in the main-event of PPVs and weekly shows numerous times. After Roman Reigns departure, he is seen as the man to become the face of the WWE. He maybe the most pushed star on the show but he is still yet to claim his first world title. The injury-bug has caught up several stars of WWE with Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, Alexa Bliss out with injury and Reigns out with illness.
We have heard that Strowman has been carrying an injury for some time now. So on the last Raw, “The Monster among Men” was ambushed by Baron Corbin, Drew McIntyre and Bobby Lashley. WWE reported that Braun has suffered a “shattered elbow” and will be out for some time. Fans started to speculate whether Braun would be able to come back before TLC or will he be able to participate in his Universal Championship match against Brock Lesnar.
We have got an update on the situation. According to Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com, Strowman is dealing with a very real elbow injury and he needs to have surgery. Johnson added WWE will have Strowman simply squash Corbin if he isn’t ready to go as TLC is just four weeks away. Then WWE will let him rest until the Royal Rumble.
Stephanie McMahon said that Corbin needs to win the match in order to become the full-time general manager of Raw and Johnson is reporting that after he loses, Alexa Bliss will be granted that position.
The five-time world champion Alexa Bliss is also dealing with concussions issues right now and may need to take an extended break from the ring. She is one of the best candidates to take up the position given her skills on the microphone.
On the recent episode of Raw, Stephanie promised that if Strowman can defeat Corbin at the Tables, Ladders and Chairs pay-per-view, he will face Lesnar for the Universal title at the Royal Rumble.
