Speaking of next week’s Raw, the second match of the “Best of 7” series between Cesaro & Sheamus will take place. The first match of the series took place on the SummerSlam 2016 Kickoff show and was won by Sheamus.

Regarding Balor’s injury, below is what WWE posted:

“He hit the wall during the match, dislocated his shoulder and was able to put it back in himself in a split second,” said ringside physician Dr. Chris Robinson. Bálor was able to finish the match, but Dr. Robinson noted that an MRI yielded results earlier today showing “a possible labrum tear.”

This injury could result in Balor missing next year’s Royal Rumble PPV.
