Earlier this week, Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Radio said that Braun Strowman might be injured, which is why he didn’t get a WWE Championship match against Drew McIntyre on Raw.
However, Meltzer wasn’t able to confirm the story with his other sources.
Now RingsideNews has reported that Strowman doesn’t have an injury. The creative team wasn’t told that The Monster Among Men can’t be used in storylines. It indicates that there might be some other plans for Strowman going forward.
One theory could be that WWE wants him to gain as much heat as possible before he challenges Drew McIntyre for the title at Tables, Ladders, and Chairs. Another probability could be that Strowman is actually injured but most people backstage don’t know about it yet.
