RAW Superstar Braun Strowman will soon undergo surgery to clear out bone spurs from his elbow. After the procedure, WWE will have a better idea of whether or not he’ll be healthy in time for Tables, Ladders and Chairs on December 16th.
At this time, company officials are highly confident Strowman be cleared in time for the Royal Rumble. He’s currently slated to wrestle Brock Lesnar at the Rumble, according to f4wonline.com.
Both Strowman and Baron Corbin were part of the opening segment of this week’s WWE Raw broadcast. This led to a 6-man tag team elimination match being set up for later in the night. Braun teamed up with Finn Balor and Elias to compete against acting General Manager Corbin, Bobby Lashley and Drew McIntyre.
After Balor and Elias were eliminated, Strowman found himself in a precarious 3-on-1 position. Strowman was able to knock Corbin out of the match, but things quickly devolved into a beatdown on the giant. The match ended in a disqualification, but the heels did not stop there. The trio crushed Strowman’s arm using the steel steps, which will be used as a way to write him off television for the next few weeks.
After the show, WWE provided an update on Braun’s status and releasing a statement on their website, the company announced that he has suffered a ‘shattered elbow’
“As reported by Michael Cole during the Monday Night Raw broadcast, Braun Strowman suffered a shattered elbow at the hands of Drew McIntyre, Bobby Lashley, and Acting Raw General Manager Baron Corbin.”
As of this writing, his TLC match with Baron Corbin is still on, but that could change next week. We’ll keep you posted on Braun Strowman’s status.
