That’s a serious situation. There are all kinds of injuries that can take place during the course of a wrestling event and some of them can be quite serious. You never know when you are going to see someone get hurt doing something in or after a match, though there is also the chance that such an injury is part of a storyline. Now we are seeing what appeared to be a rather serious injury.

Last week’s NXT ended with Bron Breakker attacking Von Wagner following the show’s main event. Breakker put Wagner on the steps and crushed his head with the other half of the steps, though the camera feed cut to black before impact. This week on NXT, it was announced that Wagner had suffered a “minor skull fracture” as a result of the attack. Due to Wagner’s history of brain and skull surgeries, it is not clear when he will be able to return to action.

It was a nasty moment. Check out last week’s match, the attack and the medical update:

Opinion: That is quite the issue and thankfully it sounds a good bit like a way to advance a storyline rather than an actual injury. At the end of the day, Wagner should be on his way back for a heck of a fight with Breakker and possibly get the biggest win of his career. That being said, hearing “skull fracture” is quite the sobering moment and now we get to see where this goes.

What do you think of the story? How will the next Breakker vs. Wagner showdown go? Let us know in the comments below.
