Braun Strowman didn’t work Money In The Bank despite being initially booked to be in the match. It makes sense story-wise in retrospect because Sami Zayn was a much more logical backstage target for Brock Lesnar than The Monster Among Men. Still, people are under the impression that Strowman is injured.
We previously reported that Strowman was moving slow in the ring, but that might have just been his work rate and the limping was put on. Because according to him everything is fine.
As he spoke to the Daily Star, Strowman revealed that any limping he is doing is just due to the fact that every WWE Superstar is banged up.
“We are all banged up, but there is a difference between being hurt and being injured.”
“I am in the best shape of my life, stronger than I have ever been, faster than I have ever been, and a little lighter than I have ever been. I can go longer than ever, I can go 45 minutes and keep fighting till I am blue in the face and keep going because that’s how bad I want this. It’s inevitable, and you can’t fight the inevitable. Its gonna happen.”
WWE will let their Superstars work while they’re hurt. If they didn’t then there might not be anyone available on any given week.
Superstars take bumps all the time so getting hurt is a part of the job. Injuries are what people should be concerned about, but Strowman seems to be no more hurt than any of his co-workers.
