World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) superstar Finn Balor’s push may come to an end owing to his series of injuries. Vince McMahon, owner of the wrestling promotion is reportedly starting to see the 35-year-old as injury prone and this could work against the professional wrestler’s further progress in the company.

Vince McMahon could tag Balor as injury prone

Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter recently made a few statements on Balor’s situation with the WWE. He believes that the 16-year-veteran of the pro-wrestling industry should not get into Vince’s head as injury prone. It will prevent Balor from being pushed all the way.

“Finn Balor) showed up and he had the shoulder surgery, and then in his second TV match back he gets hurt again, so it’s like…I hope he doesn’t get hurt one more time because you don’t wanna have that thing in Vince’s head that you’re injury prone,” Meltzer said.

“It doesn’t kill you, because Vince has that thing in his head about other people and they still get pushed to a degree. But it does temper him from going all the way with somebody.”

Balor made his NXT debut in 2014 and was promoted to the main roster in 2016. He won the inaugural WWE Universal Championship by defeating Seth Rollins at SummerSlam, last year. However, the man from Bray, Republic of Ireland had to relinquish his title owing to a shoulder injury.

Balor injures himself twice in ten matches

Balor returned to WWE RAW on April 3, 2017, where he teamed up with Rollins on the RAW after Mania episode. On the recent episode on Monday Night RAW, the Irishman faced Jinder Mahal in a match. The 6-ft-2 professional wrestler went on to win his bout.

However, he suffered a stiff forearm strike to the head from Mahal which reportedly knocked Balor out cold. The Demon King has only wrestled on ten matches until now for the wrestling promotion in which he has been injured twice.

Balor has reportedly been removed from the RAW live events following his incident with Mahal. However, he has been scheduled to appear the following week. However, it will only happen if he is medically cleared by WWE.

The 35-year old Irish star is one of the best performers in the business today. It will be to see Balor’s career spoiled in any way owing to injuries. One should hope that the WWE doesn’t fade him into the background due to him being viewed as fragile or injury-prone.
