• 2 Wrestlers Hurt Due To Braun Strowman Incident At WrestleMania 35
“The Monster Among Men” Braun Strowman won the 6th annual Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal on the WrestleMania 35 Kickoff Show.
During the match, Harper and Ali were eliminated by Braun in a spot that looked quite dangerous for Ali (as he went face-first into the announce table when he got eliminated).
They had to do this spot twice because Strowman forgot about this spot and then Harper called Strowman to remind him to eliminate them.

According to the Wrestling Observer, this incident resulted in Strowman ruining another push for himself and that’s why the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal winner hasn’t done much since WrestleMania 35.
According to Fightful, both Ali & Harper were hurt during this spot due to Strowman delivering a stiff kick to Harper. Harper was trying to hold on to Ali so that Ali doesn’t fly off of the impact and get seriously injured and this resulted in Harper hurting his back & shoulder during the fall while Ali went face-first into the announce table.
