The Raw roster suffered a bit of a blow this week, when ProWrestlingSheet.com revealed that the monstrous Braun Strowman, who has been feuding with Roman Reigns lately, will need anywhere between four and eight weeks after suffering an elbow injury.
Strowman has been feigning a shoulder injury on television, but has a legit problem in his elbow that will require minor surgery to fix. The WWE will quickly have to change their plans for Extreme Rules and probably the recently announced Great Balls of Fire pay-per-view cards. The kayfabe explanation for Strowman’s absence will be that Reigns further injured the shoulder when he attacked the man mountain during his one-armed-match (yes, that’s a thing) with Kalisto on Raw.
This is unfortunate news for Strowman, who has been getting over with fans as a legit monster. Add in the fact that he regularly beats up Roman Reigns, who everyone still seems to hate, and it means that this injury really hit at the worst time.
