Braun Strowman Injury Update, Rhyno Returns As Rhyno Claus

Braun Strowman appeared on last night’s episode of RAW and confronted Paul Heyman to promote the match against WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar at The Royal Rumble PPV Event. As seen in the video below, Strowman was not wearing the sling on his arm, but his elbow was taped up. Strowman underwent a minor elbow operation last month. The segment was taped last Monday night, just one night after Strowman appeared with the sling at The WWE TLC PPV Event. The Monster Among Men noted on RAW that he will be cleared in time to face The Beast at The Rumble. As previously reported, Strowman is not expected to wrestle before The Rumble.

Last night’s Christmas Eve Edition Of Monday Night RAW saw Rhyno make his return as Santa Claus. The return came during The Heath Slater vs. Jinder Mahal Match, which ended in a DQ as The Singh Brothers attacked Slater during a pin attempt. Slater went for the pin as Jinder was distracted by Santa in the crowd. Santa entered the ring and ended up attacking Jinder, then helping Slater clear the ring of The Singh Brothers. Santa then delivered a Gore to Jinder and revealed himself to be The Man Beast.

This could be Rhyno’s return to the storylines as himself. He was recently “fired” by then-General Manager-Elect Baron Corbin, who also demoted Slater to the job of a referee. Corbin lost his powers at The TLC PPV Event and Slater quit as a referee. Last night’s RAW saw Slater reveal his Christmas wish earlier in the show – that his buddy Rhyno could get his job back as a Superstar. Below are a few shots from Rhyno’s return on RAW:
