On this week’s Monday Night Raw, Braun Strowman would get brutalized and suffered a serious injury due to a vicious assault led by Baron Corbin. At the end of the 3 on 3 tag team elimination match, Braun would be attacked by Corbin, Bobby Lashley and Drew McIntyre.
WWE would announce that Braun Strowman had suffered a shattered elbow. So it seems that he was injured for real, albeit the true extent was not clear.
On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer would discuss the severity of Braun’s injury. He would go on to say how the injury was not as bad as if he really had shattered his elbow. But he would definitely require surgery.
He would add how the entire assault was done in order to cover for his injured elbow. He had bone spurs in the elbow that was ‘destroyed’ on RAW. The belief is that Braun would be perfectly fine by the time the Royal Rumble comes.
WWE wound announce that Braun’s match at Royal Rumble depended on him beating Baron Corbin at the TLC pay-per-view. So we hope he will be fine by that time and is able to compete and win.
