It is no longer news that the Demon King Finn Balor was injured during his match against Seth Rollins at the second biggest PPV of the year, SummerSlam.
The former NXT champion and first ever WWE Universal champion Finn Balor dislocated his shoulder during his SummerSlam match against Seth Rollins and a post-match MRI scan of his shoulder showed a “possible labrum tear.”
WWE.com earlier reported that due to this injury, the former WWE Universal champion Finn Balor had to relinquish his championship this past Monday on Raw. This was a painful experience indeed because everyone in the WWE Universe was not that pleased with him giving up the title.
Reports just reaching us now regarding to the latest updates from the official WWE website, the NXT veteran has undergone a successful surgery to repair the damaged shoulder this past Tuesday following his appearance on Raw.
However, according to the doctors his injury was more severe than first thought and it did more damage than a standard shoulder dislocation. Although they also noted that the prognosis was excellent and the doctors see him recovering at full speed.
Below is the official statement of Dr. Jeffrey Dugas as seen on WWE.com;
“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.”
