WWE Doctor Comments on the Severity of Finn Balor’s Injury, Update on His Return

Finn Bálor

As previously reported, former WWE Universal Champion Finn Balor had to undergo surgery this past Tuesday to repair a shoulder injury suffered at the hands of Seth Rollins this past Sunday at Summerslam.

WWE’s Dr. Jeffrey Dugas commented on Balor’s operation and noted that the injury was more severe than normal. Dugas said:

“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.”

It’s been expected that Balor would be out of action for 4-6 months but WWE did not include an updated timeframe in their latest report. There was some concern at RAW that he could be out of action for a few months longer.

Balor tweeted the following photos after surgery:
