As reported, Finn Balor has been pulled from the Mixed Match Challenge and was not backstage at Monday’s WWE RAW taping in San Diego. He also left early from this past weekend’s tour in South America, working Friday’s show in Santiago, Chile before flying home.
According to PWInsider.com, Balor was sent home because he is dealing with an illness, not an injury as was originally feared. The backstage attack from last week’s RAW was purely incidental and was not designed, at the time, to write him off television, but gave them a good out on Monday. He is expected to be fine in time for his advertised match against Drew McIntyre this Sunday at WWE TLC.
