Hopefully it is some good news. An injury is a horrible thing to have happen to any wrestler, but the second worst part of the whole thing is waiting to see how long someone might be on the shelf. It’s a rather scary time as you never know how bad the news might be. There was an injury scare during this week’s edition of NXT but, what new information did the second day reveal?
During this week’s NXT, Tag Team Champion Bobby Fish was thrown over the top and out to the floor, leading to the injury scare. While no specific injury was mentioned, Fish was removed from the match with Roderick Strong taking his place in the successful title defense. It was not clear what was wrong with Fish or how bad things were for him. Now though, we know a little bit more.
It was a nasty landing. Check out the scary part:
According to Wrestling Observer Radio, Fish was removed from the match due to a fear of a possible concussion on the landing. Fish’s partner Kyle O’Reilly failed to catch him properly and there was a fear that Fish could have suffered a mild concussion. At the moment is is not clear if Fish did indeed suffer the injury, though he was walking around backstage after the match and seemed to be ok. There is no word on if Fish will miss any ring time.
Here is how things went once Fish left. Check out the big title match:
Opinion: That’s quite the relief as it seems that Fish was taken out of the match more as a precaution than for anything actually wrong with him. Fish does not have the best history when it comes to injuries and hopefully this does not lead to him missing any future ring time. The Undisputed Era as a whole is on a roll at the moment and it seems like they might have gotten lucky and dodged a bullet here.
How far can the Undisputed Era go? Which member will lose their title first? Let us know in the comments below.
