When it comes to injuries, that is part of the pro wrestling lifestyle. Everyone gets hurt, with injuries varying from minimal to massive. Braun Strowman had a lengthy streak without major injury, but that ended last year. His neck was in bad shape around May and by June, he underwent neck fusion surgery. We are closing in on a year and Strowman is yet to return inside the ring.

Now, we did see him take part in the SmackDown that honored the late Bray Wyatt. Erick Rowan, another member of the former Wyatt Family, also appeared. Outside of that August show, we have seen very little of the giant. He has been representing WWE when they host various events, so he is still very much part of WWE. In fact, during a signing for Fanatics Live, Strowman revealed his return is closing-in.
