Former WWE Universal Champion Finn Balor recently spoke on The Ross Report to provide their listeners with an update on his injury.
The Irish superstar is currently out of action from the company after he injured his shoulder during a match with Seth Rollins at SummerSlam last month and he isn't expected to return to action until WrestleMania 33 next year.
Balor said on The Ross Report, according to Wrestling Inc, that his injury was worse than what doctors originally believed, and that they found bone fragments during the surgery and gave them to him in a jar.

He said: "Obviously, we get a lot of scans beforehand, which it showed a pretty good labrum tear, but I guess, when they went in with the scope, they found, I guess, a labrum tear that was, like, 180 degrees, which was, like, twice as big as they expected. Plus, there were some bicep issues, some pectoral issues.
"There were actually some bones broken in there, so they were kind enough to give me the bones in a jar, which I have on my mantle right now. It's a nice little decoration."
The Demon King also said he is going to spend at least six months on the sidelines, and that he is hopeful to return by WrestleMania 33. He said: "I guess the original diagnosis was four to six months, but, I guess, when they found out the extra problems in there, they said it's going to be a hard six.
"Now, I could try and shave some time off that, but I'm not going to. If I'm ready before six months, I'm going to make sure, when the time comes around and six months is there, I'm going to be better than ever."
Balor also mentioned he was "blown away" by the way WWE handled the situation as all his necessary appointments and treatments were booked straight away. He also stated he will be doing two sessions of rehab a day for four weeks, at which point he will be reassessed.
Injuries are the worst part of the WWE but they are also part in parcel of the business. Fingers crossed The Demon King will be back in time for the company's biggest show of the year in Orlando, Florida next year.
