It was announced this week on WWE NXT that Finn Balor underwent surgery for his broken jaw.
General Manager William Regal said that he is waiting to see how Balor recovers after surgery to determine the fate of the NXT Championship.
The title was previously relinquished by Karrion Kross and stripping the belt from Balor is the last thing they want to do right now because it would derail storyline plans.
It’s worth noting that Dave Meltzer reported last week that Balor did suffer a broken jaw at TakeOver: 31 but WWE is making the injury sound worse than what it is so this could just be WWE making fans think that he will drop the title when, in fact, they already know that he will be cleared to wrestle.
Get well soon, champ. 🤘 pic.twitter.com/3UsFZo2Ylg
