In what can be described as a lousy turn of events for Finn Balor, WWE has announced that he has relinquished the WWE Universal Championship. This is in conjunction with a shoulder injury that Balor suffered during the title match last night at SummerSlam against Seth Rollins. Mick Foley, in a Twitter post (shown below) noted that he and Stephanie McMahon have accepted his decision. They will address the vacancy of the title on the show tonight.
Bill Says: Just horrible luck for Balor, who it seemed WWE was going all in with after his call up from NXT. Here’s hoping for the best for Balor’s recovery.
