NXT/FINN BALOR: Finn Balor undergoes jaw surgery

Posted on 10/13/120 by Colin Vassallo

Finn Balor underwent surgery to repair his broken jaw this
past Friday and now has some extra hardware in his mouth in
the form of plates and screws.

The NXT champion wrote that on Friday, he needed three
plates screwed on to repair his broken jaw, which was
fractured in two different places, an injury which occurred
during his NXT title match against Kyle OReilly at Takeover

Last Friday, I underwent surgery for 2 fractures of my jaw,
including one going into my tooth. After the tooth was
removed, I was wired shut to restore my bite and help align
the fractures. Then 3 plates where screwed in to fixate the
fractures for a quick recovery. Thankfully no wires were
needed after surgery!

There have been no mentions of Balor surrendering the NXT
title, which would be unfortunate since he already had to do
that with the Universal title the day after he won it
several years ago. Also, former NXT champion Karrion Kross
had to surrender the title as soon as he won it due to a
shoulder injury.

No timetable was given as to when Balor will be able to
return to the ring.
