WWE Holds Meeting to Discuss Status of Raw Title

(WWE Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar)

On today’s edition of Wrestling Observer Live, host Dave Meltzer noted that WWE officials would reportedly be holding a meeting sometime today regarding both the WWE Universal Championship and Braun Strowman. It was also noted that the meeting was initially supposed to take place on Wednesday, but did not for reasons that remain unknown.

Meltzer further noted that WWE is hopeful that Strowman will be able to return to action by this coming July, as he is currently scheduled to undergo a procedure to correct an ongoing issue with his elbow. Currently, the general consensus is that if Strowman is only out of action for a month, then his scheduled match against Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship at Great Balls od Fire, WWE’s new July pay-per-view event, won’t have to be put off. On the other hand, if Strowman is unable to return at that time for this match, then the top two individuals being considered as replacement opponents for Lesnar would be Seth Rollins and Finn Balor. This would then leave Strowman vs. Lesnar to be pushed back for SummerSlam in August.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
