As we reported earlier this afternoon here on eWrestlingNews.com, WWE has pulled John Cena from the Men’s Royal Rumble match.
Now, WWE posted the following video on their official Instagram account, revealing that Braun Strowman will replace John Cena. Strowman was previously announced as the opponent for Brock Lesnar in the Universal title match. Instead, Strowman was taken out of the match, and Finn Balor won a No. 1 contender’s match instead to receive the title shot against Lesnar.
