As reported earlier, Braun Strowman was brutally assaulted by Baron Corbin, Drew McIntyre and Bobby Lashley on RAW. He would get his elbow injured in the process and was left bloody.
WWE would release a statement, confirming that he had a serious elbow injury but no detail was provided apart from that.
On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer would discuss the nature of Braun’s injury. He said it wasn’t as serious as WWE made it out to be.
“Well, I guess the biggest news is that Braun Strowman is going to have elbow surgery so the deal tonight was a cover for that. He has bone spurs in the elbow that they ‘destroyed’ was the one that he has bone spurs in.”
“It’s not a bad deal, obviously his elbow was not shattered. It’s touch and go whether he’ll be in San Jose for the match with Baron Corbin, the TLC match they announced. I guess it depends on the seriousness of the surgery.”
“The belief is he’s fine for the Royal Rumble with Brock Lesnar which they also announced surprisingly announced that match tonight. So that is the plan. So that’s the deal of what’s going on with Strowman, why they did what they did.”
We hope WWE has figured out the proper timing for Braun’s recovery, as he is scheduled to face Baron Corbin at WWE TLC next month.
