Braun Strowman is going to miss some TV time over the coming months. How long is anyone’s guess. WWE’s official announcement is that it would be lengthy, but smart fans know that most of these are only half truths. The rule is to always forecast the return of a wrestler further out so that a return can be a surprise. What is legit is that the big man is having ill timed surgery just after becoming arguably the company’s top baby face despite the WWE pushing Roman Reigns down the throats of gagging fans. We wish Braun a speedy recovery.
WWE issued the following:
Braun Strowman undergoes elbow surgery
Braun Strowman underwent surgery following the attack by Roman Reigns last Monday on Raw, WWE.com can now confirm.
Immediately after the assault on Strowman’s injured shoulder and elbow by the former WWE Champion, The Monster Among Men left Raw in an ambulance and was able to get back to the United States for an evaluation this past Wednesday. Following the medical consultation, Strowman underwent surgery on Thursday in Birmingham, Ala. with Dr. Jeffrey Dugas. During the procedure, it was revealed, among his other injuries, that Strowman’s elbow had been shattered, and he is expected to miss up to six months of action as a result.
Check back with WWE.com and tune in to Raw tonight at 8/7 C on USA Network for more on this developing situation.
