On episode 110 of Sam Roberts' Wrestling Podcast, the first ever WWE Universal Champion Finn Bálor talked about when he hopes to return to action and his current rehab schedule.

During the interview, Bálor said that his sling came off recently and his target return date is WrestleMania 33, although he may be able to come back to the squared circle sooner. 

"Yeah, [the sling came off]. Like down here, I feel real good, but I've got to be real careful. The target's WrestleMania. There's talk it could be sooner, but really that's the hard target. And that's what I'm aiming for right now."

Also, Bálor divulged that he is rehabbing his surgically-repaired shoulder six hours a day.

"Six hours of rehab every day. Three in the morning, yeah, three hours in the morning and three hours in the afternoon. And the guys down in Birmingham, Alabama have been incredible. I've been working out with them everyday."
