Braun Strowman Working With Various Injuries, Alex Bliss Injury Update
– Many fans were disappointed this past Friday when Braun Strowman failed to capture RAW’s Universal Championship at Crown Jewel. Instead, thanks to some interference from General Manager Baron Corbin, Brock Lesnar won bout in Saudi Arabia and was crowned the champion.
While the WWE has worked hard on pushing The Monster Among Men, when it comes to championship matches, Strowman always seems to come up a little short.
Wrestling Observer Radio’s Dave Meltzer noted recently that Braun is reportedly working through some injuries, two blown-out knees to be exact. Most fans may have noticed Strowman walking with a limp as of late, which may explain his Crown Jewel loss.
Meltzer’s report indicated that because he is now considered the top face on Monday Night RAW, there’s a bit of pressure on him to continue on the road, so apparently, he is working through the pain.

Here’s hoping he can shake these injuries off, and he won’t need surgery; Wrestlemania 35 is only some months away and the event wouldn’t be the same without the Monster Among Men. Perhaps he will finally be given a concrete opprotunity at that point in time to de-throne the Beast Incarnate.

– Speaking of injuries, it seems that Alexa Bliss’ current out-of-action status may be keeping her on the sidelines for longer than anticipated. As we all know, she was pulled from the WWE’s first-ever all-women’s pay-per-view Evolution due to a concussion, and as per last night’s Monday Night RAW opener, she showed up in (somewhat) business attire stating that her role in Survivor Series would be more of a managerial one, and she wouldn’t be competing. Many fans also too note that Bliss stated she could ‘get used to’ this.

She just may have to, if she can’t get cleared for in-ring action.
Clearly her concussion injury is keeping her on the sidelines, and despite doing a multi-person match at a live event recently, WWE medical clearance is said to be something that is taken away as quickly as it is given. Wrestling Observer Radio’s Dave Meltzer talked about Alexa Bliss recently, stating WWE’s decision to have her in a non-competitive role at Survivor Series was directly made because of her current injury status.
Here’s hoping Little Miss Bliss can shake this off as soon as possible. While it’s great she still has role in Survivor Series, most fans would love to see her competing inside of the squared circle rather that outside that ring.
