What is really going on with Finn Balor missing WWE Live Events and RAW?
If you’ve stuck with The Chairshot through the day, we’ve followed along with the status of WWE Superstar Finn Balor heading into Sunday’s TLC pay-per-view after he was sent home early from the company’s South American tour this weekend (find that story here).
Then on tonight’s episode of Monday Night RAW from San Diego, California, it was noted by the commentary team that Balor was not at the show after he suffered an injury on last week’s edition at the hands of his TLC opponent, Drew McIntyre. Now of course with any news like this that comes from the WWE under these circumstances, it must be taken with caution, as it could all be part of the current storylines.
Now that RAW has concluded, there is finally some clarification on what’s up with Finn as PWInsider reports that the leader of the Balor Club is not injured, but is in fact dealing with an illness. Thus, speculation that last week’s beat down was done as a means to write Balor off of television are false. As for Sunday’s TLC, the expectation is as Michael Cole stated tonight on RAW, that Finn will be good-to-go for the event.
