Braun Strowman to be replaced as Brock Lesnar’s next opponent


Cageside Seats reports that Braun Strowman’s injury may cause him to miss out on a big match at Great Balls of Fire. 

Brock Lesnar was rumoured to be facing Strowman at Great Balls of Fire, but that match may soon change.

In case you didn’t know…Lesnar won the Universal Championship at WrestleMania 33 when he defeated Goldberg after hitting him with 10 German Suplexes and an F-5. Lesnar’s last appearance on WWE programming occurred the following night on Raw when Lesnar and Paul Heyman were confronted by Strowman.

Pro Wrestling Sheet broke the news that Strowman will likely be out of action following this past Monday Night Raw due to an elbow injury that will require surgery. On the latest episode of Raw, Strowman appeared with his arm in a sling, but made his intentions regarding Reigns and Lesnar known.

The heart of the matter

Strowman’s arm was brutally attacked by Reigns on Raw which could’ve been done to officially write him off TV for the next couple of weeks until he recovers from his injury.With Strowman’s recovery time estimated to be between 4 to 8 weeks, he will likely be unavailable for Extreme Rules.

 However, should Strowman’s recovery extend to 8 weeks, his rumoured match with Lesnar at Great Balls of Fire may also be in jeopardy.
