Original Finn Balor Plans Leaked!
Our top story is why didn’t Goldberg make his WWE return at Summerslam? But first, an update on Finn Balor’s injury.
The Demon King had to relinquish his WWE Universal Title on Monday only a day after winning it because of a shoulder injury.
He underwent surgery yesterday, and according to Dr Jeffrey Dugas – the same man who operated on John Cena earlier this year, “Finn’s injury was pretty severe, more severe than normal…it did more damage than a standard shoulder dislocation where you simply tear the labrum.”
But don’t worry, Dr. Dugas – that name sounds made-up – was saving the good news for last.
“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.”
WWE have said ‘full speed’ is six months, while others are reporting it could be anything from 2-3 months, all the way to 9+.
Balor’s injury is a real shame, as the Wrestling Observer Newsletter has reported Finn was scheduled to face Owens for the Universal Title at Clash of the Champions next month, which would have set up a three way match with Chris Jericho at the October PPV.
For today’s top story – why Goldberg didn’t return at Summerslam, but how he still wants to come back to WWE – watch the WrestleTalk News below…
