Finn Balor left SummerSlam in agony at the weekend after dislocating his shoulder in a fight with Seth Rollins for the WWE Universal Champion title.

The same injury forced Balor to relinquish his prize on Raw 24 hours later – and despite managing to pop his shoulder back in its socket within seconds of the incident happening, he’s had to undergo surgery on the injury.

“Finn’s injury was pretty severe… 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,” Dr Jeffrey Dugas told WWE.com.

“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 will be out of action for between four and six months, and he’s even ended up with a pretty gruesome scar to show for the accident.

With this and Randy Orton’s blood on the canvas after Brock Lesnar split his head open during SummerSlam, WWE is managing to well and truly up the violence stakes of late.
