• Top WWE Star Almost Missed WrestleMania 39
In our previous article, we reported that Trish Stratus competed at WrestleMania 39 with a partially torn hamstring.
Finn Balor also suffered an injury on the road to WrestleMania 39 and almost missed the show.
However, he rehabbed very hard and made it to the biggest show of the year.
Below is what Balor wrote:
“Road to WrestleMania
On March 10th Ep of SmackDown I sustained a grade 2 calf tear. Normal recovery time is estimated at 6-8 weeks. Hold my beer!
With just 3 weeks & 2 days to WrestleMania WWE medical team ‘threw the kitchen sink at it’ & with some careful planning, long days of rehab and a lot of swear words we made it back in time with a day or two spare!
My wife said it best. ‘This injury has been the Demon of your career, and you need to over come this Demon to Release YOUR DEMON at WrestleMania’ @verolaguera
Special thanks to CJ for his incredible work (and not taking a day off for 3 weeks)
Extra mention to @docholmes & @athleanx for all their support.”
At WrestleMania 39 Sunday, WWE Hall of Famer Edge defeated “The Demon” Finn Balor in a Hell in a Cell match. This was the end of their rivalry.
Balor suffered another injury during this match. He got hit in the head with a Ladder and got busted open. He received 14 staples in his head.
