WWE’s headache with injuries does not seem to come to an end, anytime soon. Some of the fans on social media are claiming that the main event talents are under a curse. Last week, it was Becky Lynch to be out of action with a bloody face. This week, it was Braun Strowman to suffer the same consequence and get out of the scene.
What made things worse is that a storyline angle might have turned out to be real, causing nightmares for the creative team. Braun Strowman was the current prime babyface of WWE Raw in the absence of Roman Reigns from the picture. So in case, he cannot come back from the bruised condition, there would be a major void on the roster.
WWE Raw started last night with a mammoth announcement from Stephanie McMahon. She confirmed the potential main event of WWE TLC between Baron Corbin and Braun Strowman. If the monster wins this match then he will get a Universal Championship match against Brock Lesnar at Royal Rumble.
In case, Corbin turned out to be the winner then he will become the permanent general manager of WWE Raw. But if he loses then he will lose the current spot of being in the acting GM post, as well. This is the reason he wanted to ensure that Braun Strowman does not compete at WWE TLC with 100 percent physicality.
Later the night, Drew McIntyre, Bobby Lashley, and Baron Corbin delivered an onslaught attack on the monster among men. The three-on-one assault came to an end with Corbin smashing Strownan’s elbow with the steel steps. WWE.com provided an update on his injured condition which is as follows,
“WWE.com can confirm that Strowman sustained serious injuries in the attack, and is undergoing evaluation by medical personnel to determine the extent of the damage.”
Thus far, the attack was part of a ‘work’ to write Braun Strowman off the TV for a couple of weeks. But the audience in attendance mentioned that the behemoth was not feeling anything in his fingers. He might have confirmed to the officials that he had numbness in his arm or hand following the attack.
Last week it’s Bloody Becky and this week it’s Bloody Braun. The main event talent in WWE is cursed right now. Keep your neck on a swivel y’all. #RAW

This is where things get intense right now. If Braun Strowman is hurt legit then there will be a change in the earlier announced main event match at WWE TLC. We expect that the doctors will perform more medical evaluations on him to give an update about his future. If these are not positive then future plans for the flagship show will be in jeopardy.
