Braun Strowman has a legitimate elbow injury, except it isn’t shattered as WWE said. But even then he requires surgery, and that’s why he was written off WWE TV.
On the latest audio update of PW Insider Elite, Mike Johnson would discuss WWE’s backup plan in case Braun can’t make it for TLC. This is what he said:
“The expectation amongst those that I spoke to is that he will most likely make the TLC pay-per-view. But the big and I mean big asterisk there is once they cut him open they probably won’t know how bad the damage really is and you don’t know how the body is going to heal. So I was told that if they’re going to help it, they’re going to still have him on TV in some fashion. They don’t expect there’s going to be any major time away from television but you don’t know until you go in.”
“But the feeling I got from those this morning once I learned it was a legitimate injury was they could always do a very one-sided deal where he just kills Baron Corbin and wipes him out and then we wouldn’t really have to worry about him wrestling again until the Royal Rumble if that is the case and he needs some more time off in terms of physicality. So we’ll see. There was no sense of the sky is falling.”
We do hope Braun makes it back in time for TLC for his match against Baron Corbin.
