Since making his main roster debut, Finn Balor has only wrestled ten matches and has suffered two injuries out in those ten. The first injury came at the hands of Seth Rollins at this past August’s SummerSlam and the second was this past week when he took a stiff forearm to the head in his match against Jinder Mahal.
Dave Meltzer discussed Balor’s injuries on the latest installment of Wrestling Observer Radio and the dangers of being seen as injury prone by Vince McMahon. Meltzer hinted that Vince may actually begin to see him as the guy who’s injury prone if he continues to get hurt.
“[Finn Balor] showed up and he had the shoulder surgery, and then in his second TV match back he gets hurt again, so it’s like… I hope he doesn’t get hurt one more time because you don’t wanna have that thing in Vince’s head that you’re injury prone. It doesn’t kill you, because Vince has that thing in his head about other people and they still get pushed to a degree. But it does temper him from going all the way with somebody.”
