|Strowman's down to injury. Fuck.|

First off, for Strowman to suffer injury right when he's about to take off is the worst luck for him. The dude deserves this stardom he's been about ready to seize as much as anyone, and six months out will hurt his momentum on top of the damage done to his body. Second and less important, WWE's plans for the immediate future probably just got a whole heck of a lot less interesting. Strowman vs. Brock Lesnar, whether at WWE
The other options are Seth Rollins and Finn Bálor. The former might give Lesnar a great match if he bumps like a maniac, but god, the build to it being a joust on the mic between Rollins and Paul Heyman just sounds goddamn dire to me. Bálor could be interesting, a silver lining to all this, but I have my apprehensions that WWE will do that match at all, let alone this early in Bálor's tenure after returning from injury.
I just don't know anymore. Anytime something good happens with an interesting talent on RAW, it gets scuttled due to factors beyond anyone's control. No one can have anything nice, not Strowman, not the fans. Ugh. Get well soon, Mr. Strowman. Hopefully, when he comes back, he can pick up right where he left off and roar into WrestleMania season with renewed focus.
