As noted, Finn Balor underwent successful surgery on his torn labrum in Birmingham, Alabama on Tuesday. Balor was injured during his match with Seth Rollins at SummerSlam when he was power bombed into the barricade at ringside by Rollins.
WWE’s Doctor Jeffrey Dugas commented on Balor’s operation and said that the injury was more severe than normal.
“Finn’s injury was pretty severe, more severe than normal. A really high energy injury, it did more damage than a standard shoulder dislocation where you simply tear the labrum. The prognosis is excellent, however. We were able to fix it all and put it back where it came from. I’m anticipating him getting back at full speed.”
He is expected to be out of action for 4-6 months. If Balor is out for 6 months, then he will be back in time for WrestleMania season.
