WWE has announced that Braun Strowman suffered injuries during tonight's RAW beatdown from Acting RAW General Manager Baron Corbin, Drew McIntyre and Bobby Lashley. These are likely just storyline injuries.
WWE's report noted that Strowman suffered "serious injuries" in the attack, and that he is undergoing a backstage medical evaluation. This angle comes less than a month before Strowman's TLC match with Corbin at the WWE TLC pay-per-view in San Jose. As noted, Strowman will earn his Royal Rumble 2019 match with WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar if he can defeat Corbin. Corbin will be the permanent RAW GM if he wins but he will lose all red brand authority if he loses.
Below are videos from tonight's attack and WWE's announcement:
Braun Strowman injured by Baron Corbin, Drew McIntyre and Bobby Lashley on Raw
During tonight's Six-Man Elimination Tag Team Match, Drew McIntyre, Bobby Lashley and Acting Raw General Manager Baron Corbin brutally assaulted Braun Strowman and smashed The Monster Among Men's right arm with the steel steps. 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.
Earlier in the night, Raw Commissioner Stephanie McMahon scheduled a Tables, Ladders & Chairs Match between Strowman and Corbin at the WWE TLC pay-per-view. If Strowman defeats the Acting Raw GM, he will get a Universal Championship opportunity against Brock Lesnar at Royal Rumble, and Corbin will lose all authority. If Corbin wins, then he will become the permanent General Manager of Monday Night Raw.
