As we noted earlier, WWE Universal Champion Finn Balor was injured during his match with Seth Rollins at SummerSlam. WWE has confirmed the news and they also confirmed that his shoulder was dislocated when he was powerbombed into the barricade at ringside by Rollins.
Ringside physician Dr. Chris Robinson told WWE.com, “He hit the wall during the match, dislocated his shoulder and was able to put it back in himself in a split second.” MRI results showed that he has “a possible labrum tear.”
Balor will go under further evaluation to determine the extent of his injury. Obviously, if Balor has to take time off then this would throw a wrench in all of WWE’s plans because he was scheduled to headline the live events.
We first reported earlier that Balor was seen walking around in a sling shortly after SummerSlam. You can see the photos by clicking here.
