Finn Balor is set to face Bray Wyatt at Summerslam on August 11th. It’s not clear if that match is still on or not, but he will not be competing at the Smackville special tonight.

Balor was slated for an IC Title shot against Shinsuke Nakamura. WWE has now announced that Finn Balor has been pulled from the event due to an “undisclosed injury.”

During the week, @FinnBalor suffered an undisclosed injury. @WWE Medical has unfortunately not cleared him for competition tonight at #SMACKVILLE. It is unknown who or if @ShinsukeN defends his title tonight. Stay tuned as we learn more.

It will be interesting to see how WWE handles this situation as the IC Title match was set to be on the Smackville special.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
