• Possible Replacement For Braun Strowman At TLC 2018

As seen on this week’s RAW, Michael Cole announced that Braun Strowman’s elbow was shattered after brutal attack by Baron Corbin, Drew McIntyre & Bobby Lashley.

The injury is not kayfabe and Braun will be undergoing surgery.

However, his elbow was not “shattered” like WWE said, but the damage was done to the bone spurs in his elbow.

The attack on RAW was a cover up for this injury that Strowman had.

On RAW, Stephanie McMahon announced Braun Strowman vs. Baron Corbin in a TLC match at TLC 2018 PPV. If Strowman wins this match, then he’ll face Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship at Royal Rumble 2019 and Corbin will no longer be the acting RAW General Manager.

However, Corbin will become the permanent General Manager of RAW if he defeats Strowman.

Strowman’s status for TLC 2018 currently depends on the seriousness of the injury.

As we noted earlier, former WWE Champion Bray Wyatt returned from hiatus at last night’s WWE Starrcade 2018 live event at the U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Wyatt went on to defeat acting RAW General Manager Baron Corbin in Corbin’s open challenge.

Below is a photo of Wyatt from the event:

According to the Wrestling Observer, Wyatt could end up being Strowman’s replacement at TLC 2018 if Strowman doesn’t heal in-time for TLC 2018.

No word yet on how this would play into the storyline stipulation of Strowman getting a shot at Brock Lesnar’s Universal Championship at Royal Rumble 2019 if he beats Corbin at TLC 2018.

There have also been discussions of a one-sided destruction of Corbin by Strowman at TLC 2018 if Strowman isn’t 100%.

We’ll keep you updated regarding Strowman’s status.
