WWE.com is reporting inaugural WWE Universal Champion Finn Balor’s injury may be a torn labrum that could sideline him for several months.
WWE confirmed Balor’s injury did happen when Seth Rollins powerbombed him into the barricade during their championship match. According to ringside physician Chris Robinson, Balor dislocated his shoulder but put it back into place, and said today’s MRI results showed a possible labrum tear.
ESPN Senior Writer Arash Markazi, who spoke to Balor earlier today, commented on the report and said Balor couldn’t move his arm much while appearing on Good Morning America today, and didn’t speak about the severity of the injury. Markazi noted that if Balor does have a torn labrum, it could keep him sidelined for 2-3 months.
Balor will have a surgical consult this week to determine the severity of his injury, and will know if surgery is required.
