It looks like Braun Strowman will finally get his much-needed breather from the WWE and the send-off was far from a simple exit. Following the July 1 edition of WWE Raw, the Monster Among Men faced Bobby Lashley in a Falls Count Anywhere Match that did end abruptly.

It was a chaotic night signaling the start of a new era for the WWE with Paul Heyman and Eric Bischoff given the ardent task of handling the creative duties of turning things around for the RAW and Smackdown. The kick-off match saw the two giants wasting no time getting on each other's throats with Strowman and Lashley went crashing through the LED board at the American Airlines Arena in Miami, reported.

Of course, seeing two WWE stars brawl violently is nothing new although the whole thing may have favored Strowman. Even before his clash with Lashley, the word was out that the behemoth was already nursing some kind of injury (separated pelvis) and that he would need some time off. Following the events on the red brand show, he finally gets the chance to recover from the injury although it may not be for longer spell, Ringside News reported.

The official statement following the events on the July 1 edition of WWE Raw is that Strowman suffered a ruptured spleen that would keep him out of action for a while. Critics feel that this is nothing more than a cover up with most aware that the man mountain was already diagnosed with a separated pelvis. He is likely to miss around six weeks although it is not discounted that he may return to action sooner.

Either way, his absence will give Heyman and Bischoff the time to build on the duties now resting on their shoulders. The WWE is looking for ways to make the shows interesting, meaning one less giant superstar should only make things more interesting moving forward. Curiously, there was no update on the severity of injury (if any) that Lashley suffered.

Looking ahead, the time off could also be good for Heyman and Bischoff to see how they can reinvent Strowman who has hardly gotten the right push. As far as the WWE shows are concerned, the whole incident calls to mind some hardcore action in the making for the promotion. If this is the direction the WWE is headed, here is hoping that stars don't end up with serious injuries in future shows.
