Finn Balor missed today's WWE live event in Nottingham, England, reportedly for precautionary reasons related to an injury.

PWInsider reports that the Balor injury "is believed to be a minor issue." Wrestle Zone reports that it was announced at the show that Balor was injured and would be unable to compete. 

Although drafted to the Raw brand last month, Balor had been part of this week's SmackDown tour of the United Kingdom, defeating Sheamus on Sunday in Liverpool and Monday in Leeds. 

Balor also worked the Raw tour of the UK last week, competing in four-way matches with Damian Priest, Seth Rollins and Kevin Owens for Priest's United States Championship. 

Balor last appeared on WWE TV on the November 1 edition of Raw, defeating Chad Gable. The prior week on Raw, he competed in a four-way ladder match to determine the number one contender to Big E's WWE Championship, a match won by Rollins.
