Finn Balor Returns To Action At NXT Show, Still Not Yet Cleared, Scheduled For Evaluation Next Month

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 AndradeCienAlmas 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.

Emmalina Repackage Nixed After Rehearsals Failed To Impress Backstage Officials

Image result for emmalina debut

There were big plans for the Emmalina character … but after multiple rehearsals, producers realized she couldn’t pull off what they were looking to accomplish.

Sources say Emmalina was intended to be a throwback to characters like Sable and The Kat — however, delays were caused after officials felt like she wasn’t committing enough to the role and ultimately they decided to just let Emma be evil again.

Producers are still big fans of the character’s concept though — which is why they held hope it would work out — so it’s always possible that they’ll hold onto it for another female in the future.

In case you missed it, Emmalina returned to RAW Monday night and said her makeover was complete … and she’ll now be undergoing a makeover back to Emma.

Kevin Owens And Chris Jericho Festival Of Friendship Ends In Betrayal (VIDEO)

The Festival of Friendship ended in a breakup for the ages this week on Monday Night Raw … after Universal Champion Kevin Owens turned on his BFF Chris Jericho.

It all went down during Jericho’s F.o.F. when Chris presented his buddy with lavish — yet, odd — gifts and explained that Owens has made this past year one of his favorites.

Kevin clearly wasn’t feeling it though and offered a gift to Jericho as well … The List of KO … and Y2J was the only name on it. The present also came with a beatdown.

This lead to Chris being loaded into an “ambulance” afterward.

Watch the videos below and try not to cry watching the end of JeriKO.
