The status of Braun Strowman at TLC is still up-in-the-air, as the injury update he gave on Raw did not confirm when he’d be back.
“The Monster Among Men” was featured in a video near the top of the show in which he showed off his bruised elbow and announced he was preparing to undergo surgery.
As we previously reported, the injury and surgery are legit. Braun is going under the knife due to bone spurs in his elbow. We’re told the injury was aggravated during his match at Survivor Series.
Sources tell us Strowman will likely be out of action for a month, which would be around the time of TLC, therefore explaining why the match hasn’t been called off on TV. Baron Corbin explained it’s currently still on and he’d win by forfeit to become the permanent General Manager.
“Do I have any apprehensions? Maybe,” Braun explained in the video. “But I know one thing. I will be back 100 percent. And when I am, the attack on me last week — and the gore the surgeon is going to go through on my surgery today — are gonna seem like paper cuts compared to what I do to Corbin, Lashley and McIntyre.”
