• RAW Wrestler Reportedly Working Hurt
According to the Wrestling Observer, RAW Superstar “The Monster Among Men” Braun Strowman is working hurt.
It was mentioned that Strowman’s speed in the ring has diminished greatly and it could have something to do with his knees being injured.
Strowman is set to face Bobby Lashley in a Falls Count Anywhere match on next week’s RAW.
Below is what WWE posted regarding this:
“Braun Strowman has bested Bobby Lashley in an Arm Wrestling Match, a one-on-one battle at WWE Super ShowDown and, this past Monday night, a Tug of War. However, it was The All Mighty who was standing tall after that most recent test of strength, pulling the tugging rope across the eyes of The Monster Among Men to temporarily blind the goliath, then driving him into the ringside barricade.
Strowman will have a chance for retribution against the bitter Lashley when they meet in a Falls Count Anywhere Match on Raw in Dallas. Will Lashley continue to “get these hands” as these titans battle all over the arena in a bout where pinfalls or submissions can occur anywhere? Or will The All Mighty use this chaotic stipulation to finally cut The Monster Among Men down to size?
Whatever happens, you won’t want to miss any of the hard-hitting havoc.”
