Now, after finally making his long awaited return to the squared circle, PWInsider reports that Balor was legitimately knocked unconscious by a shot from Jinder Mahal in his very first singles match back this past week on Raw.
There is no word on how long he will be out from this latest misfortune but hopefully this doesn’t set him back too much. He’s earned a chance to live out his dream and he’s had to do it the hard way already. Here’s wishing him a speedy recovery.
WWE has not commented officially yet on this incident.
Here is a GIF of Balor being hit flush behind the ear and falling limp to the mat:
The way Finn's body flails around and how he hits, plus the mat burn on his forehead/nose afterwards, this seems like a legit knock out. pic.twitter.com/acbSdQW7Ij
