That’s great to hear. Every now and then, you see a wrestling headline that might shake you up a bit. The story is rather negative and very well may be due to some kind of a health scare or situation involving a wrestler. Then one of the best things that you can see is a positive update that changes everything. Thankfully that is the case again this week after a scary situation.

One of the worst stories that took place this week was a fan report suggesting that Kyle O’Reilly had suffered a seizure after this week’s edition of NXT going off the air. That is the kind of thing that can be rather horrible to hear but then things got a lot better in a hurry as news broke that the situation was a storyline rather than an actual medical issues. Now we know a bit more from O’Reilly himself.

According to Fightful Select, the situation took place after O’Reilly took a brainbuster onto the steps to end the show. Several wrestlers also believed that O’Reilly was really hurt but were assured that everything was ok. The angle never included anything involving a seizure and that was never the intent of the story. O’Reilly has since commented on the situation, thanking fans for their concerns.

I can see why they believed it. Check out what started the whole thing:

Bálor, O’Reilly & Strong vs. Dunne, Lorcan & Burch: WWE NXT, Feb. 17, 2021

Opinion: This is some great news to hear, as there is never anything good about someone possibly being in that kind of a situation. All that matters here is that O’Reilly is healthy, as this could have been a heck of a lot more serious. It should also be remembered that the seizure detail was speculation by a fan and not something from WWE, making this sound more like a run of the mill injury angle than anything else.
