As we noted this morning, Finn Balor suffered some sort of arm injury during his match against Seth Rollins at WWE SummerSlam.
Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com is now reporting the injury appears to have occurred when Seth Rollins powerbombed Balor into the barricades outside the ring. As noted, Balor is scheduled to be evaluated today at Raw and Meltzer added “there was fear he would need surgery.”
Furthermore, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross confirmed the Balor injury and commented on the Universal Title match from last night in the following blog posted over at JRsBarBQ.com:
“Reports of Balor injuring his shoulder during the title match are true and WWE will determine the extend of the injury ASAP. Hopefully, Finn won’t need surgery which would be extremely unfortunate.
Thoroughly enjoyed Finn Balor vs Seth Rollins and this was an other finish that pleasantly surprised me as I predicted that Rollins would get the duke in Brooklyn. Great main roster, career launching victory for the Irish lad who has an unlimited upside. Hats off to Rollins who helped facilitate Balor’s reign as the first ever Universal Champion who arguably has the most controversial looking title belt in recent memory in the business. The belt seemed to turn heel before our very eyes on the broadcast which is actually funny when one thinks about it.
I’ve never seen a reaction to a title belt as we all experienced Sunday night. Sign of the times I assume.”
