Word started making the rounds late last night thanks to some fans in attendance that Finn Balor may have suffered an injury at an NXT house show in Nashville. He was seen limping and using crutches but until now, there was no concrete information either way.
Keywords: Until now.
WWE confirmed today that the NXT champion did, in fact, suffer an ankle injury. It's bad enough that he will miss tonight's house show event in Indianapolis and he's scheduled to undergo testing for it on Monday.
Rumors have circulated that a main roster call up could be in the works soon. What's more, he's still the champion of the developmental brand and a major part of the plans at least up through just before WrestleMania 32 and what should be the biggest event in its history, Takeover: Dallas.
Stay tuned for more.
Update: At least he hasn't lost his smile.
