If Strowman will be left out of Royal Rumble PPV, Lesnar will need a new challenger to defend his title against

It seems like every main event superstar in WWE is falling down. First, we heard from Roman Reigns about the condition he's suffering from, Alexa Bliss has gotten injured, Becky Lynch was pulled out of Survivor Series due to the concussion she suffered and now at this week's Raw Braun Strowman has suffered a legitimate elbow injury.

And though the scenario that happened on Raw was just an angle to cover up Strowman's injury, it seems it could turn out worse than we may have thought.

Also, it's still not clear whether or not Strowman will be able to fight Baron Corbin at TLC as he's going under evaluation as reported by Michael Cole on Raw, if his injury turned out to be worse than imagined, expect Strowman out of action (as he'll require a surgery to recover from the injury) not only from TLC PPV but also from Royal Rumble PPV as he's scheduled to face Brock Lesnar in the Universal Championship match.

So, if Strowman will be left out of Royal Rumble PPV, Lesnar will need a new challenger to defend his title against. So, today in the feature let's take a look at those superstars who might replace Strowman at Royal Rumble to face Brock Lesnar.


#4 Elias

Ever since Elias signed to WWE, he is looked up as a top guy. Though, after Elias made his main roster debut he's not seen around much, with his recent face turn it seems that things have already started to change for him.

Also, with his recent turn in character, Elias is the perfect contender to face Brock Lesnar at Royal Rumble next to Strowman. And though, it's clear that if Elias fights Lesnar at Rumble, he will not win the title from the latter, it'll give him some momentum that he needs for now and also it'll be his first one-on-one big match in WWE.

So, expect in coming weeks WWE to announce Strowman's replacement if he's unable to compete at Royal Rumble PPV.
