NXT champion Finn Balor is suffering from a broken jaw, thanks to the hard-hitting match at Takeover 31 against Kyle O’Reilly.
Balor uploaded an x-ray of his jaw, which is broken in two places, on his social media and wrote that he’s still the champion and there are no intentions of surrendering the belt.
The injury occurred when O’Reilly rocked Balor with a knee to the face towards the end of their main event match. Balor then started bleeding from his mouth as well and after the match he was transported to a local medical facility to get checked.
A broken jaw usually takes up to two months to heal if it’s a small fracture and no surgery is required.
