Braun Strowman Undergoes Cervical Spinal Fusion Neck Surgery

Former WWE Universal Champion Braun Strowman — real name Adam Scherr — has revealed on social media that he is on the road to recovery after having a level one fusion on his C4 and C5 vertebrae. "The Monster of all Monsters" thanked WWE and Andrew's Sports Medicine for taking care of him and said it was scary to find out that he had to undergo surgery. He reassured his followers that he would be back once he was healed. It recently emerged that Strowman had suffered an undisclosed injury.


Many fans and wrestling personalities have wished Strowman all the best since he posted the news, including former WWE Intercontinental Champion Ryback, who wrote, "Health is wealth. Hope you make a fast recovery and get back to 100%," while currently pregnant Carmella posted, "Wishing you a speedy recovery, country!!!" Former American strongman competitor Robert Oberst also commented, "You'll be back better than ever brother."

Strowman returned to WWE in September 2022 after being released from his contract during the COVID-19 pandemic. Prior to departing the promotion, Strowman had participated in a Triple Threat Match for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania Backlash 2021. Since returning to the company, the 2018 men's Money in the Bank contract winner has regularly been teaming with Ricochet — the pair joined forces after taking shots at one another on social media about their wrestling styles. Strowman's most recent match took place on the May 1 episode of "WWE Raw," where he and Ricochet defeated Alpha Academy's Chad Gable and Otis.
