What’s the story?

Many fans are anticipating the return of Finn Balor on the Road to WrestleMania. However, it looks like the WWE Universe is in for a huge disappointment. According to Cagesideseats, Balor is unlikely to return to the ring before WrestleMania 33.

In case you didn’t know...

Finn Balor became the first ever WWE Universal Champion at SummerSlam by defeating Seth Rollins. However, Balor injured his shoulder during the match and was subsequently forced to forfeit the title.

Ever since then, the WWE Universe has been eagerly awaiting his return to the ring. While it was thought that Balor might be able to return at Royal Rumble, he was unfortunately not medically cleared to compete. Subsequently, he was expected to return before WrestleMania 33, but it looks like this will not happen either.

The heart of the matter

Cagesideseats reports that Balor is unlikely to return to WWE Programming before WrestleMania. In fact, he is not even expected to make an appearance at this year’s WrestleMania either. According to the latest reports, Balor will most likely miss this year’s WrestleMania despite being in a Live Event at Buffalo, NY.

This news will come as a huge blow to many Balor fans who were expecting to see him at this year’s WrestleMania in some capacity. While it is not yet officially confirmed, it is highly unlikely that WWE will waste the impact of Balor’s return at this year’s WrestleMania given how stacked the card is already is. 

What next?

Finn Balor is most likely to return on the night after WrestleMania 33. Balor is expected to immediately go after the WWE Universal Championship upon his return. Given that Brock Lesnar will be holding the title after WrestleMania 33, it will be interesting to see how WWE books Balor’s return.

Author’s Take

A confrontation between the Beast and the Demon King is a mouth-watering prospect for many WWE fans. However, it is highly unlikely that WWE will take the title away from Lesnar soon after giving it to him. On the other hand, Balor might even be pitted against some other top WWE Superstar immediately upon his return. Regardless of when he is expected to return to television, we can expect Balor to make a huge impact.
