A few weeks ago Stephanie McMahon booked Braun Strowman in a Tables, Ladders and Chairs Match against Baron Corbin at the TLC pay-per-view, and Strowman was then written off TV so he could undergo elbow surgery.
Since then there have been a lot of questions regarding how the match will go down at TLC, but PWInsider is reporting that Strowman is currently scheduled to appear at the pay-per-view, so he will be available to appear on camera.
Corbin has been saying on TV over the last few weeks that he’s counting on winning the match by forfeit, but it’s been speculated that WWE could have Strowman work a short match at TLC.
However, it’s worth noting that WrestleVotes is reporting Strowman isn’t likely to wrestle on Sunday.
Back to news: I’m hearing 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.
