As seen on this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw in Los Angeles, CA at the Staples Center on the USA Network, Drew McIntyre, Bobby Lashley and Acting Raw General Manager Baron Corbin attacked Braun Strowman during their six-man tag team match. After the match, WWE announced that Strowman had suffered “injuries” as a result.
It turns out that this angle was done to cover for the fact that Strowman will indeed need elbow surgery as he has a legit injury. Dave Meltzer provided an update on Wrestling Observer Radio where he stated that Strowman’s match with Baron Corbin at the TLC pay-per-view all depends on the seriousness of the surgery.
He’s still expected for the Royal Rumble match with Universal Champion Brock Lesnar.
