WWE’s original plans reportedly called for Braun Strowman to challenge Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship at WWE TLC.
However, he was then suspended indefinitely as part of a storyline and is also excluded from the #1 contender’s match on Monday as well. He was seemingly written off of television and now the reason has been revealed.
On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that Strowman has suffered an injury to his knee and he will not wrestle at WWE TLC. It was said that he might have injured his knee during the Men’s Survivor Series match.
It was also said that the writing team is under the impression that the match will still go on as planned, only that Strowman will not be included.
