WWE.com 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.
