Former NXT and WWE Universal Champion Finn Balor got physical with two of NXT’s top competitors Wednesday night … however, the wrestler claims doctors have yet to give him the green light for Raw.
WWE released video of Balor coming to the aid of Shinsuke Nakamura at the University of Central Florida during Wednesday night’s NXT TV taping and it looks like he’s back to 100%.
Finn easily clotheslined Andrade ‘Cien‘ Almas over the top rope, then hit Bobby Roode with a kick to the gut and Sling Blade.
The company reports that even though he looks ready for action, Balor told the live crowd that he still hasn’t been medically cleared to compete by WWE doctors.
Finn Balor may have gotten physical at an NXT event Wednesday night, but he isn’t lying about his medical situation — sources say he truly hasn’t been cleared yet.
even though Finn’s been working in the squared circle again and feels back to normal, the wrestler still has one more medical evaluation scheduled for the beginning of March.

Just to clear up any confusion, Finn Balor is still scheduled to be a part of WWE’s main roster following last night’s WWE NXT appearance after the University of Central Florida tapings. Balor is being advertised for RAW live events in March. Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that Balor has always been scheduled for WrestleMania 33 but there’s no word yet on what his role will be. Balor has been out of action since SummerSlam 2016.
