Three weeks since beginning rehab on his shoulder injury, Finn Balor says it's felt like a lifetime. WWE posted the video seen above with Balor at the WWE Performance Center and says he's just under 5 months away from returning, hopefully in time for WrestleMania 33.

Balor says he went back home to Orlando and was left to his own thoughts, and coming to terms with losing the WWE Universal Title with everything else that happened in Brooklyn was a process. Balor says that process was made a lot easier by the genuinely humbling outpouring of support from family, friends and most importantly, the WWE fans. Balor believes the support is really pushing him forward in his recovery.

Balor thanks the fans and says at the three week point, rehab is going well as he works at it 5 days per week. Balor is scheduled to return to Birmingham, Alabama next week for a week of therapy where he had the surgery, and he hope to see the surgeon again. He also mentions stopping by SmackDown when they're in town to visit everyone.
