Braun Strowman will be absent from WWE television for at least the next couple of months, and all the plans that WWE had for him on RAW and on upcoming PPVs Extreme Rules and Great Balls of fire are up in the air right now. Roman Reigns will need a new program and new opponent for Extreme Rules, and the rumored match for the Universal Title between Braun and Brock Lesnar at July’s Great Balls Of Fire is now off the table.
So, what’s next for The Monster Among Men?
Braun took to his Instagram account today to address his injury and let everyone know that he will return, bigger, badder, and better than ever before.
I will return to finish what I've started and that's carving my name in history as the most destructive thing #WWE has ever seen. This surgery is just a minor speed bump I will return bigger stronger faster and even more dangerous than ever mark my words I'm the definition of unstoppable!!! #braunstrowman #monsteramongmen #nothingcankeepmedown
His elbow injury is legitimate, and the current thought is that he has already left the on-going WWE European Tour. He has more than likely flown home to have the minor surgical procedure done. No one knows for sure how long he will be out of action; that won’t be known until doctors go in and assess the amount of damage that he’s sustained to his joint.
Needless to say, everyone is hoping for a speedy recovery for Braun…well, everyone but his potential opponents, that is.
We will keep everyone updated on Strowman’s surgery and rehab time as soon as more information becomes available.
