Finn Balor is a 16-year veteran when it comes to professional wrestling, and even though he has created some memorable moments whilst being part of the NXT roster, his time on the main roster hasn’t followed suit.
The former NXT Champion was injured back at SummerSlam in 2016 in his first main roster pay-per-view match where he won the Universal Championship but was forced to relinquish it the following night. Balor had been on the shelf for eight months before he returned to team up with Seth Rollins the night after WrestleMania this year.
Once again, Balor suffered an injury in just his second televised match following his return, when he faced Jinder Mahal. Finn has recently been removed from many live events following the concussion and according to Dave Meltzer’s latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Finn’s push could be over.
He said: “(Finn Balor) showed up and he had the shoulder surgery, and then in his second TV match back he gets hurt again, so it’s like…I hope he doesn’t get hurt one more time because you don’t wanna have that thing in Vince’s head that you’re injury prone. It doesn’t kill you because Vince has that thing in his head about other people and they still get pushed to a degree. But it does temper him from going all the way with somebody.”
Balor has been removed from all upcoming Raw live events and even though he is advertised for Raw tonight, the only way Finn can return is if he’s medically cleared by the WWE doctors.
