Bálor and O’Reilly had a legendary battle the last time they faced off in the ring. Pushing each other over the limit, O’Reilly put every essence of the Champion to the test. 

Unfortunately, his efforts were not enough and Bálor successfully defended his hard-won title. Neither of the two escaped the match unscathed. 

Following the fight, WWE confirmed that Bálor suffered a broken jaw which put him out for a while. O’Reilly also had some broken teeth which kept him out.

We can’t imagine the brutalities that will ensue when the two meet each other for the New Year event. Bálor has no intention of letting go of his title this time either.
