Finn Balor’s contest against Elias Samson didn’t draw main event status, but the guitar shot to end the match in a disqualification victory for the former WWE Universal champion still has people talking:
Balor clearly tried to get his hand up in time, but couldn’t and his head ended up taking the brunt of the guitar shot:
After the nasty shot to the head, Balor and Samson will face off in a no-disqualification match next Monday.
Balor was an NXT champion before moving up to become the first-ever WWE Universal champion. He was injured in the championship match and has never quite fully recovered.
Samson debuted in WWE in 2014. He was a surprise call-up to Monday Night Raw after WrestleMania.
