WWE's Braun Strowman Reveals 'Awful' Blood System Infection

The Monster Among Men has been on antibiotics...

Braun Strowman has revealed a blood system infection has caused him to lose over a stone in weight in less than a week.

The former WWE Universal Champion was last seen at the 2021 Royal Rumble, entering as the final entrant and eliminating Cesaro, Sheamus and AJ Styles from the match. 

The Monster Among Men has not been sighted on WWE television since and Strowman has taken to Instagram to share the reason why, stating he has contracted an infection that got into his bloodstream.

The 37-year-old revealed he initially got ill last weekend and has since been on antibiotics to combat the infection, but the combination of his sickness and the inability to eat has caused him to lose significant weight. 

Speaking on his Instagram story, Strowman said: "I got really sick over the weekend, and I got an infection that got into my blood system and had to get put on antibiotics for that. 

"It was awful. I dropped like 15 pounds in five days. Couldn’t eat and stuff like that. It looks like I had fifty pounds of water weight, all my joints and everything are all swollen and inflamed. 

"But the antibiotics are working, I’m feeling better, we’re gonna nip this thing in the bud, get back to training, put that mask back on, and I’ll be back to seeing you guys very soon."

Strowman was drafted to Monday Night Raw last year but hasn't been seen on the show since November due to a knee injury. Strowman did however return on the go-home episode of SmackDown prior to the Royal Rumble, at the end of January.
