Braun Strowman loses Universal Championship shot at WWE Royal Rumble

At WWE’s TLC event in December, Braun Strowman defeated Baron Corbin, both costing Corbin his job as Raw general manager and earning an opportunity at Brock Lesnar’s Universal Championship at WWE Royal Rumble. However, Strowman’s short temper and Corbin’s taunting seemed to have cost the Monster Among Men.

While Stroman chased Corbin backstage, the Lone Wolf hid in Vince McMahon’s limo. In order to get to him, Strowman tore one of the doors off of the vehicle. Corbin got away, and before Strowman could chase him, Vince appeared to chew out Strowman.

It was later revealed that Strowman had been stripped of his opportunity, and a new contender would be decided tonight in a Fatal-4-Way match featuring Drew McIntyre, John Cena, Baron Corbin, and Finn Balor.

    But they never said he was not well enough. He is obviously not cleared yet, and the flipping of the limo is not actually him doing it.
    If they had said he was not cleared to wrestle then yeah, flipping a limo would be silly (well sillier than it already is), but they used a storyline that does not make him look weak to cover for his slower than expected recovery.

    I believe sometime in 2019 Braun Strowman will be WWE champion but this maybe to save Braun Strowman from another Brock Lesnar lost. They need Braun Strowman to be there top face. An Brock Lesnar doesn’t want to put Braun Strowman over.

    So he’s still not cleared to wrestle after surgery, but he’s well enough to “flip” over Vince’s limo?
