As previously reported, Braun Strowman is legitimately injured with bone spurs in his elbow. The storyline explanation given on Raw was that he suffered a shattered elbow due to the attack by Baron Corbin, Drew McIntyre, and Bobby Lashley.
The feeling is that he should be ready in time for his match with Corbin at the TLC pay-per-view on December 16. PWInsider is reporting that he will be getting surgery on Monday in Birmingham, Alabama.
If his elbow is worse than expected then it could force WWE to change plans for TLC. The stipulation for the match is that Strowman will get his rematch with Brock Lesnar at the Royal Rumble if he wins and Corbin will become the permanent Raw GM if he wins.
The word in WWE is that Strowman should be ready for his match with Lesnar at the Royal Rumble.
