Welcome to Monday’s edition of The Bump, the place where we keep you up to date about the world of pro wrestling. Yesterday, we talked about an AEW/NJPW Partnership possibility, Impact Wrestling’s Victory Road Results, Eric Bischoff on how live fans may make ThunderDome worse, and Sasha Banks’ message to Bayley. Today, we are mostly concentrating on the news coming out of NXT TakeOver 31. Let The Bump get you completely up to speed.

WWE Injury Update On Finn Balor and Kyle O’Reilly
Sports Obsessive wanted to make sure we could get an official announcement about Finn Balor’s and Kyle O’Reilly’s conditions after a hard-fought match.
WWE announced that Kyle O’Reilly has a number of broken teeth as a result of the fight with The Prince. O’Reilly is also being evaluated for additional injuries.
WWE.com also report that Finn Bálor has been taken to a local medical facility for CAT scans to determine if he suffered potential facial fractures during his successful title defense.
ROH Star and Impact Wrestling Star Get Wed
Not NXT, we know, but Jordynne Grace and Jonathan Gresham were planning their wedding months ago, but Covid-19 stopped it. The two officially tied the knot at the weekend and they had a great time celebrating their big day. We want to wish them a big CONGRATULATIONS!
