Mick Foley and Stephanie McMahon introduced Balor, who gave a speech about winning the title how it represented a lifetime of sacrifice. He says this title represents that you can accomplish anything if you believe it, then says he sacrificed to win the title last night. Balor thanks everyone, including Seth Rollins for giving him a great match, then said the title would be the first thing he came back for, and hands it to Foley as he leaves.
As far as how long Balor will be inactive, WWE.com posted a new update regarding Finn Balor’s injury shortly before RAW went on air, estimating Balor will be sidelined for “anywhere from four to six months” instead of the originally estimated 2-3 months. Balor is reported to be going for a surgical consult this week to determine the severity of the injury.
