It looks like the angle from last night’s Raw was meant to give Strowman time to have a procedure on his elbow.
Last night on Raw Braun Strowman was beaten down by Acting Raw GM Baron Corbin, Bobby Lashley, and Drew McIntyre. The trio beat Strowman down outside the ring finishing off the Monster Among Men by trapping his arm and smashing it with the steel ring steps.
According to online reports, this was used to give Strowman time to have a legitimate procedure done on his elbow. It is said that it is simply to remove bone spurs in his elbow. Officials are certain Strowman will be ready for his TLC Match against Baron Corbin at Tables, Ladders, and Chairs on December 16th.
