Braun Strowman, newly returned from his knee injury sustained back in November, has taken to Instagram to share some serious health news.

I got really sick over the weekend, I got an infection that got into my blood system, had to be put on antibiotics for that. It was awful, I’ve dropped like 15 pounds in five days, couldn’t eat and stuff like that. It looks like 50 pounds of water weight, all my joints and everything are 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 returned to WWE programming on the go-home episode of SmackDown before the Royal Rumble, and was then entrant number 30 in the Rumble match itself.

Unfortunately there was no mention of when he’ll be back on television, but we wish him all the best and hope it’s sooner rather than later!
