• Former Universal Champion Out Of Action With A Concussion
According to PWInsider, former Universal Champion Braun Strowman is out of action because of a concussion:
“Strowman was scheduled for this past weekend’s Live Events teaming with Ricochet against The Viking Raiders, but was pulled from the road in order to heal.
He wrestled the Raiders with Ricochet on the 4/21 edition of SmackDown, so the injury must have occurred there.
There is no word yet how long he is expected out of action.”
WWE has been taking concussions (and head injuries in general) very seriously ever since the Chris Benoit tragedy in 2007.
