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.

BREAKING: Triple H Suffers Injury During ‘WWE Crown Jewel’ Match

Triple H and Shawn Michaels reunited in a winning effort against The Undertaker and Kane at Crown Jewel. The match was the main event of course and saw WWE’s four legends come together for a sellout crowd in Saudi Arabia.
But unfortunately, it appears that Triple H came out of Crown Jewel much worse for wear. According to WWE, The Game has apparently suffered a torn pectoral muscle. Hunter is expected to return to the states for surgery.
The match between D-Generation X and The Brothers of Destruction was both extremely physical and highly intense. Fans in attendance responded overwhelmingly positive to the bout, which may have surprised some critics.

INJURY UPDATE: @TripleH sustained what appears to be a torn pectoral muscle during the #WWECrownJewel main event between #DX and The #BrothersOfDestruction. https://t.co/6KEEUsHf2v

Crown Jewel also saw AJ Styles retain his WWE Championship against Samoa Joe. The Bar retained the SmackDown Tag Team Championships against The New Day and Brock Lesnar became the new Universal champion after beating Braun Strowman.
One of the biggest surprises of the night took place when Shane McMahon won the World Cup Tournament. McMahon was at ringside during the tournament final between The Miz and Dolph Ziggler when Miz was supposedly injured outside of the ring. Rather than forfeit the match for SmackDown Live, Shane stepped in for the injured A-Liser and won the cup for the blue brand.

WWE News: Top Heel Slated For A Major Long-Term Babyface Turn

As a result of the shocking announcement made by Roman Reigns that he is once again battling leukemia and is forced to relinquish his WWE Universal Championship, the main event for the Crown Jewel event has now been changed to a singles match between Brock Lesnar and Braun Strowman for the now-vacant title.
For the past couple of months, Strowman returned to being a heel after becoming one of the most cheered people on the roster. However, to opposite The Shield, Strowman aligned with Drew McIntyre and Dolph Ziggler in an attempt to take out the Hounds of Justice.
At the Melbourne, Australia Super Show-Down event, The Shield was able to best the Dogs of War. However, Strowman, McIntryre, and Ziggler were able to gain some momentum on a following Raw episode, but eventually, again be one-upped by The Shield. The Dogs of War trio dissolved after the dissension between Strowman and the then-Raw Tag Team Champions McIntyre and Ziggler become feverish, with Strowman powerslamming Ziggler, followed by a Claymore kick to Strowman from McIntyre.

Following the Reigns announcement on Raw, Paul Heyman came out to cut a promo to both show his respect to Reigns, as well as transition into the Crown Jewel main event. The feud between Strowman and McIntyre escalated as Strowman caught yet another Claymore kick.

While it is evident that Strowman is once again a babyface and McIntyre remains one of the top heels of the company, Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Radio revealed future plans for McIntyre.
“Drew [McIntyre]’s long-term is gonna be as a babyface. I think that’s pretty clear.”
Right now, WWE is looking for another face of the company, since Reigns has clearly been the heir apparent to John Cena. Meltzer added that McIntyre could be groomed to be the new face of the company, since Strowman is “one-dimensional.”
“[Strowman] could be the stop-gap guy,” said Meltzer. “I don’t see him as the long term, but, perhaps he will be. He’s the most popular guy right now, so he’s back as a babyface.”

WWE Downplaying Saudi Arabia's Involvement In 'Crown Jewel'

WWE Crown Jewel is set to take place on November 2. But as pro wrestling fans are now surely aware, the event has been mired in controversy. That’s due in large part to Crown Jewel‘s location.
Saudi Arabia is the host nation for Crown Jewel but the government is now under a cloud of suspicion thanks to a journalist’s disappearance and possible assassination. The journalist in question is Jamal Khashoggi. Khashoggi worked for the Washington Post and has been an outspoken critic of the Saudi government. Now that he’s disappeared, many believe the Saudi government is behind it.

Now it appears that the company has decided to downplay Saudi Arabia’s involvement. WWE.com has pulled all references to Saudi Arabia from its Crown Jewel page. While this does not mean the event is changing locations, the move does seem to be an effort to quieten any negative publicity.

The story is ongoing of course and WWE has indeed been monitoring the situation. But according to PWInsider, Crown Jewel will not change locations. This may or may not come as a surprise to fans that have been following the story but sources in WWE evidently claim Saudi Arabia will still host Crown Jewel.
Crown Jewel will feature the in-ring return of Shawn Michaels as he teams with D-Generation X co-founder Triple H against The Undertaker and Kane. Roman Reigns will defend the WWE Universal Championship against Braun Strowman and Brock Lesnar. The WWE Championship will also be on the line when AJ Styles defends the title against Daniel Bryan.

WWE will also introduce the first ever World Cup at Crown Jewel. The World Cup Tournament will be decided at the event and the qualifying matches are currently taking place on SmackDown Live.
WWE has yet to make any further announcements concerning Crown Jewel‘s status. The Floor Seat will continue to follow the story as it develops.

The Highly Anticipated Brock Lesnar UFC Title Fight Might Not Happen

Former WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar will be making his return to the squared circle at the upcoming WWE Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia, at which The Beast will face Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman in a Triple Threat match for the Universal Title. Following the bout, it is expected that Lesnar will be taking time off WWE to train for his return to UFC in 2019.
Up until this week, it was assumed that Brock Lesnar will be challenging Daniel Cormier for the UFC Title sometime in the spring or summer of 2019, as the WWE star and the UFC Champion had an encounter in The Octagon following Cormier’s title win at UFC 226.

In a new interview conducted for ESPN, Daniel Cormier admitted that he probably only has two fights left in him, and with one already confirmed to be against Derrick Lewis, the other might not include Brock Lesnar.
“Counting the Lewis fight, I think I’m down to two fights left,” Cormier said. “Maybe this will be a blessing in disguise, the fact that I don’t have a crazy, long fight camp to beat myself down. That may prolong it for me, but right now, I think I have this one and maybe one more. I can still fight in March and hit my retirement date. The one opponent that would matter to me most is Jones, because he’s beaten me twice.” (The second win was later overturned to a no contest due to a Jones positive drug test.)
“The one that would mean more financially would be Lesnar. I think I would always pick the one that means more, but my wife might have something to say about that.”

With regards to Brock Lesnar’s WWE status, it is believed that the former Champion is currently not interested in signing new, longterm deals with WWE, and prefers signing short term contracts which include one or two matches, and allow The Beast to leverage higher money deals each time he renegotiates with WWE brass.

RelatedDaniel Cormier Opens as Early Betting Favorite Over Brock Lesnar
Lesnar’s last WWE match came at SummerSlam this year, when he lost the Universal Title to Roman Reigns, ending The Conqueror’s history-making Title reign in the modern era of WWE. Paul Heyman, the advocate for Brock Lesnar, made his return to WWE TV on Raw recently to announce Lesnar would be invoking his Title rematch clause at Crown Jewel in November.
