Braun Strowman was written off WWE TV due to an elbow injury last month. He had successful surgery in order to remove some bone spurs in his elbow and has been going through rehabilitation to get ready for WWE TLC, with his target being Baron Corbin.
However, Braun Strowman’s status even now is still a big question. On Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez discussed Braun’s WWE TLC status, saying he might actually appear for the event. However, he will not be doing much. This is what he said:
”As far as I know as of yesterday, Braun is on the show. He is working TLC. I don’t know what he’s going to be doing. I don’t think he’s gonna do a long TLC match, but Braun is going to be on the show and he may win, he may not win.”
“The story is that Kurt Angle is going to be at Raw on Monday and Kurt Angle, of course, was sent home. So if Baron Corbin loses, I mean, Kurt Angle would be a fine replacement. I know that a lot of people including myself think there’s a decent chance Baron Corbin is going to win that match and they’ll have to do a bunch of storylines leading to Braun actually getting a shot against Brock. They got six weeks after the pay-per-view. They’ve got plenty of time, but as we’ve noted in the past during the two-week Christmasy period, they could very easily have Kurt Angle come back as GM, have two weeks of fairly happy shows, and then build the heat up back in January.”
It is uncertain how WWE will handle the situation. However, Braun will try not to strain himself as he still needs to heal in time for the Royal Rumble. So we will have to wait what happens next.
