The reigning Champion, Finn Bálor, went in knowing that he was stepping into one of the biggest nights of his career. Kyle O’Reilly was everyone’s favorite underdog and was backed by prominent NXT figures.

Living up to everyone’s expectations, the two blew the roof off the place. O’Reilly made sure he was known and probably gave NXT the best fight it has ever witnessed.

Unfortunately, his efforts were in vain as Finn Bálor managed to crawl out alive by securing the victory. It can surely be said that he pulled it off by a hair strand of a margin.

Both Superstars were left bleeding from their mouths in a match that went black and white due to the breach of PG content. This just proves how much both Superstars wanted it.

Finn Bálor and Kyle O’Reilly have both sustained injuries

Following the match, Finn Bálor was rushed to the hospital. In a post-event media call, Triple H confirmed that Bálor was indeed undergoing checks.

He assured fans that there was no serious injury detected as of now and that Bálor went through some X-Ray scans. This was done to figure out if there was anything wrong. The blood from the mouth surely hinted at some sort of Jaw injury.

Both Superstars are not expected to return to action anytime soon. If Bálor’s supposed injury gets serious, he will have no choice but to give up his title like Karrion Kross before him.

As of now, he can walk away a proud Champion. Finn Bálor is no longer crippled by the crutches of “The Demon” and is his own man. He intends to keep it that way.
