It’s believed that WWE will confirm that Braun Strowman is next in line for a title shot against Universal Champion Brock Lesnar as well as his match against Baron Corbin at the TLC pay-per-view event during tonight’s episode of Monday Night Raw in Los Angeles, CA at the Staples Center on the USA Network.
WWE wrote the following in their preview article for the Raw episode:
Braun Strowman gets his Universal Title Match … and Baron Corbin
By playing (reasonably) well with others and scoring four consecutive eliminations for the Raw Men’s Survivor Series team last night, Braun Strowman dealt SmackDown LIVE its fourth loss of the night, but rather than applaud The Monster Among Men, Acting Raw General Manager Baron Corbin instead attacked the behemoth from behind, celebrating with Bobby Lashley, Lio Rush and Drew McIntyre and having a good laugh at Strowman’s expense.
He won’t be laughing long, however. Per Raw Commissioner Stephanie McMahon, Strowman will get a match against Corbin in the very near future, as well as a Universal Championship Match against Brock Lesnar.
When will both opportunities arise? Perhaps we’ll find out tonight.
