Major Update On Whether Braun Strowman Will Compete At 'WWE TLC'

Braun Strowman, unfortunately, had his momentum thwarted due to being forced to have surgery on his elbow. Along with knee issues, reported by the Wrestling Observer, Strowman needed some time to recover from nagging injuries, which was why he was written off by being attacked by Baron Corbin, Drew McIntyre, and Bobby Lashley.
As of now, Strowman is booked to compete against Corbin at the TLC pay-per-view this Sunday. If Strowman wins, he will compete against Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship at the Royal Rumble. However, if Corbin wins, he will be the permanent General Manager of the Raw brand.

Despite promoting Strowman for TLC, it does appear that he will be competing. According to WrestleVotes, Strowman most likely will not be competing against Corbin at the show.
“Braun Strowman is still not likely to compete Sunday at TLC. So much so, that on the holiday tours, John Cena will wrestle in his place. Strowman will still appear at the holiday tour shows, just won’t work. So I can’t see him working a TLC match.”

Although Cena is not confirmed to make a surprise appearance at TLC, he is scheduled to return on December 26 and will be competing on non-televised events until his next film, which he will start airing in Vancouver on January 20.
As promoted on Raw, Corbin is expecting to win by forfeit and become the permanent GM. However, with Vince McMahon appearing on Raw, there could be some interesting scenarios that come out of TLC. With Strowman likely out, Corbin either could actually win by forfeit, or someone else could come in the stead of Strowman and defeat Corbin. This could lead to Vince firing Corbin on Raw and doing the Superstar Shake-up on the show.

Major Name Being Advertised To Appear At 'WWE Crown Jewel'

With WWE Crown Jewel losing two of its top stars in John Cena and Daniel Bryan, WWE has had to make several last minute adjustments to the PPV to compensate for the lack of Cena and Bryan.
Taking Cena’s place in the World Cup tournament on the show will be Bobby Lashley, and AJ Styles will now be facing Samoa Joe for the WWE Title instead of Daniel Bryan, who had his WWE Title match against Styles on Smackdown Live this week.

As noted, during a recent interview with The Orlando Sentinel, WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan teased a possible appearance at Crown Jewel when he said, “there are a lot of plans in the works. I’m looking forward to going to Saudi Arabia with the WWE, looking forward to WrestleMania — but yeah, we’re moving forward at a rapid pace. It’s exciting to have this opportunity again after all these years where I was there and gone.”

Major Update On Replacement For John Cena If He Refuses To Attend WWE 'Crown Jewel'

WWE’s Crown Jewel event has been mired in controversy for several weeks. It began with fan complaints because once again, Vince McMahon’s company chose to do business with a country that would not allow its female Superstars to perform.
But those complaints became something much more following the death of Saudi Arabian journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Fans believed that WWE should move the event to another venue or perhaps even reschedule for another time. WWE is moving forward however, though John Cena may not be along for the ride.

But according to WrestleVotes, WWE may have a replacement ready to go if John does not make the trip to Saudi Arabia.

I know injury concerns have been making the rounds, but I’m hearing Bobby Lashley is John Cena’s replacement in the World Cup at #WWECrownJewel
— WrestleVotes (@WrestleVotes) October 27, 2018

Barstool Sports recently broke the news that both Cena and Daniel Bryan were refusing to work the Crown Jewel event. While many fans were perhaps surprised at this news because of both men’s standing in the company, many more likely agreed with their stance.

Cena is booked to work the in the Eight-Man World Cup Tournament, which also features Seth Rollins, Dolph Ziggler, Rey Mysterio, Kurt Angle, Randy Orton, Jeff Hardy and The Miz. The World Cup is a new addition to WWE and the qualifying matches for the tournament recently took place on Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live.

Bobby Lashley is currently not booked for Crown Jewel, which means WWE does not have to move him around in order to put him in Cena’s spot. It’s unknown if he will replace Cena on the card or if John will indeed be part of the event.
Crown Jewel has been a major focus for WWE, which led many fans to believe that Evolution has been overlooked as a result. Evolution is the first ever all-women’s pay-per-view and takes place just five days before November 2nd’s Crown Jewel event.
