Conflicting Reports Regarding Braun Strowman Injury Angle On RAW



Braun Strowman
Is Braun Strowman’s arm injury legitimate or is it a work?

If you missed last night’s edition of WWE RAW (find Mitchell’s Live Report here), ‘The Monster Among Men’ Braun Strowman was viciously attacked during the show’s opening match by Baron Corbin, Drew McIntyre and Bobby Lashley.

Of course, this came after Stephanie McMahon had announced Strowman and Corbin would meet at TLC on December 16th with Braun’s Universal Title shot and Baron’s position of power both hanging in the balance. There’s been a lot of wonder with regards to the attack on ‘The Monster Among Men’, more specifically regarding his status as WWE later announced during RAW that he had suffered a “shattered elbow”.

According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, Strowman is legitimately hurt and was written off of television with the angle because needs surgery to clean up bone spurs in his right elbow. Previously, Braun dealt with a similar situation prior to challenging Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship at Great Balls Of Fire in 2017, oddly enough also being written off for what the company called a “shattered elbow”. Additionally, Meltzer noted that the match against Corbin at TLC may not even happen and depends on how surgery goes. He would also add that WWE officials believe he will be cleared in time for the Royal Rumble in January.

Now on the other side of the spectrum, PWInsider’s Mike Johnson has reported that the attack on last night’s RAW against Braun was simply a means of putting Braun in more peril for the match at TLC, therefore giving the illusion that Corbin has a much better chance of winning.

EA’s Take: My first reaction to the angle last night was exactly what Mike Johnson said. However, I can’t completely rule out what Meltzer said yet either. I mean, we recently heard he was having problems with his knees, but nothing about his elbow at all. I will say, it doesn’t really make any sense for WWE to announce the match against Corbin knowing they’re about to write Braun off in the very next segment and he may not even make it to TLC. What exactly would the point of that be? On the other hand, maybe they did it with a backup plan in place. For example, they make the match against Braun official with the hopes he can recover in time and if not, they can easily alter the stipulations a little bit and insert….Kurt Angle. Think about it, you’ve got Baron trying to win and get the RAW GM gig permanently, so it would make sense.

Here are your Gold League standings!

  • Jon Moxley: 1-0, 3 points
  • Swerve Strickland: 1-0, 3 points
  • Jay White: 1-0, 3 points
  • Rush: 0-1, 0 points

  • Jay Lethal: 0-1, 0 points


Here are your Blue League standings!

  • Daniel Garcia: 0-1, 0 points
  • Eddie Kingston: 0-1, 0 points
  • Bryan Danielson: Yet to Compete
  • Andrade El Idolo: Yet to Compete


My Thoughts:

Nothing too crazy, nothing too wild, this tournament only just got started. The only disappointing point is that they could not get Bryan “cleared to compete” Saturday night. Not sure how much of that is shoot given the bad eye, but this was kinda the problem of wanting him in the tournament over tons of other choices. Bryan wants to face Okada for WrestleKingdom 18, how is Bryan supposed to do that at his best if he’s also gonna be in a round robin, doing five top level matches in about as many weeks? And it takes away from Andrade being able to do something. Also a little surprised we didn’t even hear from Andrade on Saturday.

Now as we heard on Saturday, round two’s matches are set. Gold League will see Mark Briscoe VS Rush, White VS Swerve, and of course, Moxley VS Lethal. Nice variety there, a couple 0-1 guys facing off, as well as two 1-0 guys, and then 1-0 VS 0-1. No offense to Lethal, but he feels like an 0-2 going up against Moxley. Hard to call the other ones but that’s the fun of it. Meanwhile, Blue League sees Brody VS Claudio in a showdown to be 2-0, then Bryan and Andrade finally jump in, Bryan against Eddie and Andrade against Garcia. Sadly, feels like Eddie and Garcia are going 0-2, no way Tony Khan is booking Bryan and Andrade to lose their first shots.

In fact, that could be half the reason they did wait on those two, that’s almost too good for just a first round opener. But I still would’ve done it, same as NJPW does stuff like that for round robins, which this is all modeled after anyway.
