The inaugural WWE Universal champion Finn Balor has made the announcement that he will not be returning early from his injury.
Finn Balor made an appearance at the Wizard World Comic-Con and was asked about when he will be making his return the ring. With the next Raw pay-per-view being RoadBlock this coming December Finn Balor had this to say about the event.
“I can 100% guarantee – what date is Roadblock? December 18th? I will 100% guarantee that I will be home with my family and friends at Christmas. I will be back in 2017.”
WWE RoadBlock is officially scheduled for December 18th and will take place the PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. If Balor was to return to the promotion at RoadBlock he would have returned a couple of months earlier than his scheduled six month absence.
Below I have embedded the video of when Seth Rollins powerbombed Balor into the barricade at SummerSlam back in August. In the video you can see Balor pop his injured shoulder back into place and continue and win the match against Rollins.
