Braun Strowman will be taking time off so he can undergo surgery.
Dave Meltzer provided an update on Wrestling Observer Radio. He said, “Braun Strowman is gonna have elbow surgery so the deal tonight was a cover for that.” Meltzer said that situation is touch and go for his match with Baron Corbin at the TLC pay-per-view and it all depends on the seriousness of the surgery.
The belief is that he will be fine for the Royal Rumble match with Brock Lesnar.
For those of you that missed Monday Night Raw, they did an angle at the start of the show to write him off TV. Baron Corbin placed his arm on the steel steps and then he used slammed another set of steel steps on Strowman’s arm and elbow. Later in the show, Michael Cole somberly announced that Strowman had a shattered elbow.
What he actually has is bone spurs in his elbow. He had elbow issues last year and had to take a few weeks off for surgery at that time.
