Last week, WWE was hit with the devastating news that rising monster heel Braun Strowman will be out of action for several weeks as he undergoes elbow surgery, per Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet (h/t Wrestling Inc). The surgery figures to keep him out of both Extreme Rules and Great Balls of Fire after he was pegged for a superfight against Brock Lesnar for the WWE Universal Championship, per Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline (h/t Wrestling Inc). 

Strowman leaves at a time when his rivalry with Roman Reigns was reaching its boiling point. After Strowman’s victory over Reigns at WWE Payback, Raw’s two biggest stars were reportedly set to clash for a third time on pay-per-view at Extreme Rules. For now, Reigns will have to soldier on as a top star in need of a new feud; however, there could be a silver lining beneath this sudden change of plans.
