On Friday, Jan. 23, NXT held a live event in Cocoa Beach, Florida. Before the intermission for the house show, Adrian Neville defeated Finn Balor and Hideo Itami in a Triple Threat match. According to a fan report from PWInsider, Finn Balor may have very well been injured during the match.

The report of the show from PWInsider noted that it appeared Balor injured his ankle early on in the match, after taking a hurricanrana from Neville. Still, Balor would finish the match, even hitting a couple of springboards despite looking banged up.

Neville would hit a 450 on Itami for the win, ending the match. Following the finish, Balor reportedly scurried to the back, appearing to only put weight on one of his legs. Additionally, Balor was aided by some of WWE’s medical personnel upon making his way to the back. However, the fan report sent to PWInsider would also note that the “injury” could have very well been Balor selling well, but described the thought as wishful thinking.

WrestlingRumors.net will keep you updated on the potential Finn Balor injury as more information becomes available.

Editor’s Note

Hopefully the Finn Balor injury is minor and nothing too serious. His match with Neville at the next “NXT Takeover” will be amazing.
