Finn Balor is slated to undergo medical testing this week that could clear him to return to the ring, has learned.

Balor won the WWE Universal championship at Summerslam but suffered a labrum tear against Seth Rollins when he was powerbombed into the barricade.  He relinquished the championship the next night and underwent surgery.

Dr. Jeffrey Dugas told at the time that, "Finn’s injury was pretty severe, more severe than normal. A really high energy injury, it did more damage than a standard shoulder dislocation where you simply tear the labrum. The prognosis is excellent, however. We were able to fix it all and put it back where it came from. I’m anticipating him getting back at full speed."

At the time of the injury, the belief was Balor would be out 4-6 months.  

With the Royal Rumble about to kick off the official build to Wrestlemania, obviously WWE wants Balor back in the mix.  We will see how soon that happens.
