WWE have reported that NXT Champion Finn Bálor has been injured at an NXT Live Event in Nashville.

WWE physician Dr. Chris Amann said: "Finn Bálor suffered an ankle injury, and will be unable to compete tonight."

Further evaluation will be done on Monday. In the meantime, Bálor has posted a photo to his social media accounts of his ankle strapped up and on crutches with the caption "Why so serious?", hopefully indicating his injury won't be as severe as people may assume.

Another injury is not good news for the WWE who already have multiple stars on the sidelines. Big matches in NXT are just around the corner with a championship match against either Samoa Joe or Sami Zayn. NXT TakeOver: Dallas will be one of the biggest TakeOvers to date and depending on how bad the injury is, we may not see Bálor competing.
