Finn Balor got busted open the hard way on RAW on Monday Night, as he had a nasty cut on his head after getting hit by Elias Samson with a guitar.
Finn Balor hasn’t had the best luck with injures over the last 12 months, and he added to his streak of misfortune in his match on Monday night with Elias Samson.
In the match on RAW, Balor was taking it to The Drifter in a rematch from Balor’s win last week. Towards the end of the match, the action went outside, and Samson busted out his guitar to play a couple of notes on Balor’s skull.
Samson blasted the guitar over Balor’s head in a shot that Jeff Jarrett would be incredibly proud of, but it went a little too far with some extra impact on the back of Balor’s skull. The edge of Samson’s guitar left a huge gash on Balor that needed to be tended to before Bray Wyatt delivered a promo to The Demon on the big screen.
Balor posted a picture of the nasty cut on his Twitter, along with the bruises and scabs from the guitar on his back from where the guitar hit.
This isn’t the first time in 2017, let alone over the last year, that Balor got hurt in a match, as he suffered a concussion in his first singles match of 2017 against now-WWE Champion Jinder Mahal on the second RAW after Wrestlemania. Before that, he was out of action from the end of August to the beginning of April due to a nasty shoulder injury.
Hopefully, we can figure out a way to make sure Balor doesn’t get hurt anymore, or we can just put him in a nice little bubble and get him some extra padding so it doesn’t happen again.
