Wrestler Braun Strowman Shares Touching Insights from Recovery After Significant Injury

Spine Injury

A renowned professional wrestler, Braun Strowman, opened up about a severe injury he sustained during a wrestling match in 2023 that sidelined him for a year. The former Universal Champion required neck fusion surgery after an in-ring incident that compromised his spinal column. The injury occurred when Strowman was wrongfully struck, causing his head to snap back and momentarily paralyze his arms due to the severe spinal stenosis between his C4 and C5 vertebrae.

Upon sustaining the injury, Strowman described the immediate aftermath where his arms fell to his side, he lost his balance, and intense pain akin to boiling water poured down his limbs. The uncertainty of his future, both in wrestling and in everyday functionality, weighed heavily on him during the subsequent weeks. Seeking support, Strowman reached out to fellow wrestler Steve Austin, who reassured him after having experienced a similar medical crisis. Austin’s encouragement played a significant role in Strowman’s recovery process.

Strowman spoke highly of the support he received from the WWE, emphasizing the company’s dedication to the well-being of its talent. Triple H, an executive at WWE, reinforced the importance of placing future health above the present, offering Strowman a sense of security regarding his career and the medical care he would receive. Strowman highlighted the comprehensive care provided by WWE, including access to top-notch surgical options and rehabilitation facilities.
