It’s going to happen to everyone at some point. Wrestling is a physical sport and that is going to cause an injury at one point or another. Some of these might be worse than others but they are going to happen to everyone at some point in their careers. If the wrestler is in luck, it might not be as serious as it could be and they can get by with some rest. That might be the case with a current NXT star.

According to Casey Michael of Squared Circle Sirens, NXT’s Candice LeRae is currently “banged up”. There is no word on how bad LeRae’s condition is or if she is expected to miss any ring time. Her most recent match was at NXT Takeover: Toronto on August 10 and she did not wrestle at the following television tapings. There is no word on if she will be wrestling on the upcoming NXT episodes when the show moves to USA.

LeRae is good when she’s healthy. Check her out against a fellow WWE wife:

Candice LeRae vs. Renee Michelle -- First Round Match: Mae Young Classic, Aug. 31, 2017

Opinion: That’s never good to hear but it seems that LeRae isn’t seriously injured. If it’s just wear and tear from a few harder matches, there is nothing wrong with letting her sit out a bit and heal up. When NXT moves over to USA they are going to need every hand that they have and putting someone as popular as LeRae out there is only going to do good things for the show.

How big of a star can LeRae be? When will she be NXT Women’s Champion? Let us know in the comments below.
