Finn Balor's meteoric rise to the top of the WWE lasted one single day after a serious shoulder injury forced the Irishman to vacate the WWE Universal championship just 24 hours after winning the newly-created belt at SummerSlam.
It was truly a shame for the NXT stalwart and now he is set to miss at least six months of action.
Kevin Owens picked up the belt on Monday night thanks to an incredible finish to the four-way elimination match on Raw that saw Triple H cost Roman Reigns, and more importantly, Seth Rollins the title.

However, it was the latter who hurt Balor at SummerSlam. After breaking John Cena's nose, retiring Sting and now injuring Balor, there have been plenty of people - Bret Hart included - who believe that Seth Rollins is a dangerous worker.
However, Balor is not one of those people.
Balor told former WWE announcer Jim Ross on his Ross Report podcast: "Well, people are entitled to their opinions, but as far as my opinion goes, I have been hurt a lot of time working, and it’s never been with Seth Rollins. Obviously, if you work a lot, you are going to get hurt.
"Occasionally, this just happened coincidentally, and I just so happened to be working with Seth, so as far as I’m concerned Seth is one of, if not the best performer we have in this business. I feel that all the flack he gets is totally unwarranted. Any kind of slack he gets for being unsafe is really ridiculous."
The incidents really are piling up for Rollins. I wouldn't say Rollins is reckless, but when the same move retires Sting and puts Balor for the shelf for half a year, it's time to reconsider the Buckle Bomb.
