Backstage Update on Braun Strowman’s Return to WWE TV

Earlier this week, there were conflicting reports regarding if Braun Strowman was cleared by WWE doctors to return to in-ring action after undergoing minor elbow surgery last month.

According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Strowman is scheduled to work the Great Balls of Fire PPV on July 9 against Roman Reigns. The two Superstars had been feuding prior to Strowman’s surgery.

As noted, WWE is planning to have Strowman challenge Brock Lesnar for the WWE Universal Title at the upcoming SummerSlam pay-per-view event in August. As of last week, the match is expected to be the main event of SummerSlam.
