Braun Strowman Returns At WWE TLC, Earns Universal Title Match

Braun Strowman was victorious at Sunday’s (December 16th, 2018) WWE TLC pay-per-view event in San Jose, California at the SAP Center on the WWE Network. He made his return to in-ring action after undergoing surgery in order to get bone chips removed from his elbow. This was also a TLC Match. It was a short match as Kurt Angle, Heath Slater, Finn Balor, Chad Gable, Bobby Roode, and Apollo Crews attacked Corbin by hitting their finishers only for Strowman to pin Corbin to win the match.

There were some stipulations that go along with this contest. If Corbin had, he’ll be the permanent GM of Raw, but if he lost, he’ll lose all authority. Since Strowman won, he’ll face Brock Lesnar for the Universal Title at the Royal Rumble. Now, those situations have played out and Strowman is the #1 contender for the title.

This feud started at WWE Crown Jewel pay-per-view event in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia at the King Fahd International Stadium on the WWE Network once Corbin attacked Strowman before he faced off with  Lesnar for the Universal Title.

The Royal Rumble pay-per-view event takes place on Sunday, January 27, 2019 in Phoenix, Arizona at Chase Field and will air on the WWE Network and some traditional pay-per-view outlets.
