NXT Champion Suffers Ankle Injury at Live Event; Status to be Updated Monday
Hopefully he recovers soon. 😦
NXT held a live event Friday night in Nashville, TN. At that event, it appeared that NXT Champion Finn Balor suffered an injury to his leg or ankle. Today, WWE.com issued a short note to confirm that the NXT Champ is indeed injured and will at least miss tonight’s live event in Indianapolis, IN.
Dr. Chris Amann, WWE’s physician, noted that Balor suffered an ankle injury that will keep him sidelined for at least one event. He noted that Balor will undergo further testing and evaluation on Monday. Balor, in the meantime, is at least in good spirits. He took to Twitter and asked why everyone was so serious, as shown below. Here’s wishing the NXT Champ a speedy recovery.
