As noted, Samoa Joe defeated Finn Balor to become the new NXT Champion at the non-televised NXT live event in Lowell, Mass. on Thursday evening.
According to multiple live reports, Balor appeared to suffer some sort of injury during the final moments of the match with Joe.
Right before the finish, which saw Joe pin Balor to become the new NXT Champion, Balor appeared to roll his ankle. According to our live correspondent, after Balor seemingly rolled his ankle, the referee threw up the dreaded “X” sign. Approximately one minute later, they went to the finish and Joe won the title.
After the match, as Joe celebrated, doctors appeared to be checking on Balor’s ankle. As of this writing, it is unclear whether or not Balor suffered a legitimate injury. We hope to have an update on Balor’s condition later.
In addition to the brief comments Balor tweeted after the event, which you can view below, he also provided an interesting tease to a number of fans who were outside of the building after the show.
It was an honor #NXTLowell

As seen in the video, Balor teased an appearance on Monday’s RAW, telling the fans in the parking lot after the NXT live event on Thursday night, “See you all on Monday!”
