He had to have surgery, which was initially supposed to be 40 minutes long, but when the doctor began the procedure he realized that the injury was much worse than they thought. The surgery lasted over 6 hours and he was out of action for 9 months.
He started to think about why that injury had to happen at that time, and he believes it was the Universe’s way to bring him back down to earth. He had to work from the bottom up for everything he’s achieved in life, and maybe he just wasn’t ready to get thrown right into the Universal Championship picture during his first month on the main roster.
Balor informs that he’s not nervous about this Sunday’s Universal Title match against Brock Lesnar. His family is flying in for the event and he’s just hoping he doesn’t get beat up too badly. He thinks he and Lesnar will knock it out of the park in their match.
That sums up this week’s episode of E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness. You can listen to the show yourself anytime here, and I’ll catch ya next week for another recap!
