WWE has announced that three NXT superstars were injured coming out of the brand’s live debut on the USA Network on Wednesday:
– Kona Reeves received five stitches to his face after suffering an orbital injury that occurred in a pre-show dark match against Damian Priest.
– Arturo Ruas suffered finger injuries while competing against Pete Dunne during the second hour that aired on the WWE Network.
– Velveteen Dream suffered a lumbar injury during his North American Title match against Roderick Strong. He was seen walking gingerly afterwards on Full Sail’s campus.
– ProWrestlingSheet.com confirmed exclusively that Joaquin Wilde (f.k.a. DJZ) has been out of action since July with a broken eye socket, which is said to have occurred during a “freak accident” while training.
Wilde will undergo surgery soon after weeks of waiting to see if the injury would heal on its own.
