• RAW Star Reportedly Undergoing Surgery, Status For Upcoming Big Match

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

It looks like the injury is not kayfabe and Braun will be undergoing surgery, according to the Wrestling Observer.

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 last night’s 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. However, the belief backstage is that Strowman will be ready for his match against Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship at Royal Rumble 2019.

No word yet on how Strowman will receive a match against Lesnar if he’s unable to compete at TLC 2018, as his Universal Title shot depends on his TLC 2018 match outcome.
