Finn Balor revealed in a new report that Finn Balor underwent successful surgery on Tuesday night to repair a torn labrum after suffering a dislocated shoulder at SummerSlam.

Dr. Jeffrey Dugas was quoted in the article noting that Balor’s injury was “more severe than normal” and that it did more damage than a standard shoulder dislocation.

“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.”

Balor was forced to relinquish the WWE Universal Championship as a result of the injury on Monday night. He’s believed to be out of action for around four to six months.

Balor tweeted a photo from his hospital bed following surgery on Tuesday night.


  1. I lost a very close friend recently after during surgery so seeing Finn Smiling right there made me happy. You are a great man Finn Balor, entertaining and a real light get well soon.

  2. I heard a lot about him…..but when he debuted at post-Battleground RAW……I was like where the hell this guy was……he is just one of the greatest… we say……his physique seems like all of us…..quite normal……not that bulked up and muscled up guys……..he deserves a lot than all of this……he is great….!!!!!

    Hell of a Respect for him!!!!

  3. Maybe John Cena can lend him some of his super quick recovery powers, so he’d be back next week…

  4. Damn, that’s some tough luck. He worked all his life to be in WWE, finally gets the golden key to the kingdom, then just like that it’s gone with an injury. Just at a time when WWE really needs him too. Best wishes for a full recovery, Finn.
    Hey wait, is he throwing up the Bullet Club symbol there? Heh, awesome! =D
