Another reason. One of the bigger stories of the week has been the Coronavirus outbreak in NXT which has seemingly left a lot of wrestlers out of action. That is the kind of thing you can only plan for to a certain extent and it has been causing problems for NXT. What matters most is keeping the wrestlers healthy, but another wrestler is missing some time for another reason.
This week’s NXT featured a rather interesting match with Danny Burch/Roderick Strong teaming up to face Fabian Aichner/Raul Mendoza. The four of them are all parts of different tag teams and the winners’ teams would later face off for the #1 contendership to the Tag Team Titles. It would seem that the regular partners’ absences may have been due to the Coronavirus but that is not the case at least for one name.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Bobby Fish, Strong’s regular partner in the Undisputed Era, missed the show because of a knee injury suffered when training Brazilian ju-jitsu and kickboxing. There is no word on how long Fish will be out of action but the injury is considered to be mild. It is not clear when the tag match for the future title shot will take place.
We had an interesting one otherwise. Check out the tag match which took place:
Opinion: I certainly wouldn’t call it a relief to have Fish out of action with an injured knee but it is a little different than being sick with a virus. Hopefully Fish is back in the ring sooner rather than later, not just because he is needed in the ring, but also because the Undisputed Era is that much better when he is around. Fish is a very talented wrestler and it would be nice to have him back at full strength.
What did you think of the tag match? Who will become #1 contenders? Let us know in the comments below.
