Earlier we cited a report from PWInsider claiming that Braun Strowman has been cleared for in-ring action. Someone from WWE reached out to us to say that he has not been cleared. However, Strowman is on track to return soon, perhaps to interfere at the Great Balls Of Fire pay-per-view or on the following night for Raw.
Pro Wrestling Sheet editor in chief Ryan Satin also heard that Strowman had yet to be cleared so the PWInsider report appears to be incorrect.
Just read an incorrect report on Braun. While he IS close to coming back, my sources say Strowman has NOT been cleared for return yet.

Either way, Strowman is still scheduled to take on Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam and presumably, he will resume his feud with Roman Reigns later this year. It’s looking like WWE will be stacking up SummerSlam with big time matches.
As of now, the top matches for SummerSlam are looking like:
Braun Strowman vs. Brock Lesnar
Roman Reigns vs. Goldberg
John Cena vs. Jinder Mahal
Unless Vince McMahon decides otherwise, these are the matches believed to be penciled in for the show.
