According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the immediate future of Braun Strowman in WWE looks uncertain as the storyline suspension may be more than what it seems to be.
STROWMAN WAS SUSPENDED FOR ATTACKING ADAM PEARCE
In the last episode of Raw, Braun Strowman attacked WWE official Adam Pearce, who has in the last few months become sort of an authority figure in the shows. As a result, “The Monster Among Men” was suspended from the show.
While the suspension is purely from a storyline perspective, Meltzer believes that the suspension may be a way for WWE to put Strowman off TV in order for him to recover and revitalize himself from a knee injury.
HE MAY HAVE A POSSIBLE KNEE INJURY
Meltzer, who previously spoke of a possible match between WWE Champion Drew McIntyre and Strowman at TLC now believes that the match will no longer take place at the pay per view but will be shifted to a later date.
“There was a story going around that Strowman was said to have been injured in the Survivor Series and they did a suspension angle on Raw to write him off, but he was not on the internal injury list and many believe McIntyre vs. Strowman was still set even though the company did follow up Raw with an announcement of a suspension for him attacking Adam Pearce,” Meltzer stated.
His report further alleges that as “The Monster Among Men” has spoken of title matches so many times in the recent past that the fact of him getting a title shot is nothing short of a certainty. However, the opportunity may not be immediate, as he seems to have picked up a knee injury sometime in the recent past, most probably at the traditional 5 vs 5 Survivor Series match at the latest edition of the eponymous pay per view.
Strowman’s glittering stint in WWE so far
He has been quite successful in WWE. He is a one-time Universal Champion, a one-time WWE Intercontinental Champion and a two-time WWE Raw Tag Team Champion (with Nicholas and Seth Rollins).
He is also the winner of the 2018 Men’s Money in the Bank contract, the winner of the titular match at the Greatest Royal Rumble event, and the winner of the 2019 Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal. In 2020, at WrestleMania 36, he won the Universal Championship, his first world title.
