Braun Strowman Eyeing Return from Injury – Braun Strowman is gearing up for a potential return to the ring following a neck fusion surgery that took place during the summer, keeping him sidelined since his last match alongside Ricochet on May 1st against Alpha Academy on Raw.
After a recent check-up marking five months post-surgery, Strowman received medical clearance to commence weightlifting. His neck’s fusion progress—specifically on the C4 and C5 vertebrae, secured with a metal plate and four screws—looks promising. He aims to continue this recovery trajectory into 2024, targeting a comeback to in-ring action after a year, with the ambition of resuming his dominant presence in the ring.
Regarding a potential return at the Royal Rumble in January, Strowman remains uncertain, acknowledging the unlikelihood of being medically cleared by then.
“The goal for 2024 is to continue this. As I said, I go back after the first year to have another check-up and then get back in the ring, getting back into shape and then getting back to passing these hands out,” he said.
Expressing his gratitude and reverence, Strowman paid tribute to Bray Wyatt, acknowledging Wyatt’s immense influence on his career. He credited Wyatt for not just enhancing his wrestling skills but also shaping him as a better individual. Strowman held Wyatt in the highest esteem, considering him one of the most exceptional individuals he’d encountered and someone he aspired to emulate.
“So especially with my return to WWE, like I have, I’m not only coming back for me, I’m coming back for him,” Strowman stated.
Strowman’s return to WWE holds significance beyond personal aspirations; it’s a dedication to Wyatt’s memory and the profound impact he had on Strowman’s journey within the wrestling world.
