As noted, a Fatal 4 Way will take place on next week's RAW to crown a new WWE Universal Champion with Owens, Big Cass, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns. If KO is still in the cards, could he win the WWE Universal Championship on Monday?
Remember when most WWE news stories didn't center around people getting injured or updates from their successful surgeries?
The injury was suffered as a result of the powerbomb from Seth Rollins into the barricade. "I'm anticipating him getting back at full speed", he added.
But for whatever reason-whether it be his recent wellness policy violation or his inability to get over with numerous fans as a babyface-Reigns was pushed out of the WWE Championship picture.
Balor (aka Fergal Devitt) had only joined WWE's main roster in the previous month, and had already become one of the companies' biggest stars due to his work on NXT, WWE's junior brand. The show came in third overall on cable, falling behind The O'Reilly Factor and The Haves and The Have Nots.
"That put everything into perspective - I was thinking "four to six weeks best case, six to seven months worst case" but in seven months I will have my arm back".
On Balor's surgery, Dr Jeffrey Dugas added: "Finn's injury was more severe than normal - it did more damage than a standard shoulder dislocation where you simply tear the labrum". A large section of the WWE fans did know him well, which is why he got the reactions he did most everywhere they went. With Finn Balor vs Jericho at WWE Summerslam, the main championship feud for RAW would have featured Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins. Meanwhile WWE seems to be going back to business as usual with Roman Reigns possibly walking out with a World Title.
