Just a week after suffering a jaw injury, Finn Balor underwent surgery.
Balor successfully retained the title over Kyle O’Reilly in the main event of NXT TakeOver 31 event.
Balor had previously confirmed last week that he broke his jaw in two places during his latest title defense. He even shared an x-ray photo of it.
During a recent episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that WWE made the injury seem to be worse than it actually is. Bryan Alvarez speculated that WWE knew the severity of the injury and that could be the reason as to why they didn’t strip him of the title.
