NXT Champion Finn Balor and Kyle O’Reilly put on an instant classic last night at NXT TakeOver 31, but their efforts did not go unpunished. At the culmination of their bout, both men were seen to be bleeding heavily from the mouth.
After NXT TakeOver 31 went off of the air, it was reported by Triple H in his post-TakeOver media call that Balor had been taken to a local hospital for x-rays on his jaw and his No.1 Contender was also being evaluated as well.
Now, WWE have given an update on both men and it doesn’t look like good news. While Kyle O’Reilly suffered several broken teeth during the war, Finn Balor was evaluated for potential face fractures and was undergoing CAT scans to detect any underlying issues.
WWE’s full statement on the pair can be seen below.
