Yet another casualty has fallen from the Mixed Match Challenge, as the ‘Monster Among Men’ Braun Strowman has been pulled from the tournament due to upcoming surgery on a bone spur in his elbow.

Strowman was part of the ‘Monster Eclipse’ team with Ember Moon, and the two remained undefeated in the round-robin stage to be ranked Raw #1 seed for the knockout stages.
Braun’s replacement has not yet been announced, and this makes him the fifth pull-out of the tournament, with the others being Sasha Banks, Alexa Bliss, Kevin Owens and AJ Styles.
