The Monster Among Men is set to face Baron Corbin at the upcoming TLC pay-per-view as he attempts to secure a title shot against Brock Lesnar for the Royal Rumble.
However his chances could now be in jeopardy after he was attacked on Monday Night Raw.
WWE announced his elbow had been shattered following a three-on-one assault by Corbin, Bobby Lashley and Drew McIntyre.
That forced him to pull out of the Mixed Match Challenge, in which he was due to partner Ember Moon.
Now the company has released a statement announcing Strowman will go under the knife, potentially putting his battle with Corbin in doubt.
It read: “Braun Strowman will be undergoing surgery on his shattered elbow, WWE.com has learned.
“The injury to his elbow was the result of a brutal attack at the hands of Acting Raw General Manager Baron Corbin, Drew McIntyre and Bobby Lashley on Monday Night Raw.”
CE YOU SOON WWE confirm return of legendary superstar
Strowman, 35, has become one of the company’s biggest stars over the past few years after battles with the likes of Roman Reigns and Lesnar.
The giant secured a clean sweep for Raw against their SmackDown counterparts at Survivor Series on Sunday.
Despite his dominating displays, the former Wyatt Family member has yet to land the big prize on Raw.
Strowman has come close to winning the Universal Title on several occasions, but last time he battled for the prize he was screwed by Corbin at WWE Crown Jewel earlier this month.
