Dave Meltzer mentioned on today’s episode of Wrestling Observer Live that plans Braun Strowman and the WWE Universal Championship would be discussed in a meeting today with WWE officials. The meeting was supposed to take place yesterday, but for unknown reasons it didn’t happen.
Meltzer mentioned that the company is hopeful that Strowman can be cleared to return to action by July. The feeling is if he can only be out of action for a month, the scheduled bout against Brock Lesnar for the WWE Universal Title won’t have to be put off. If Braun is unable to return in time for the July pa-per-view, Finn Balor and Seth Rollins would be the top candidates as possible replacements at the Great Balls of Fire event. Braun vs. Brock would then be pushed back to the SummerSlam event.
