Io Shirai and Toni Storm had a barnburner on this week’s edition of NXT, matching the same intensity they showed in their clash at the Mae Young Classic years ago. Unfortunately, Bianca Belair and current NXT (Women’s) Champion Rhea Ripley got involved, leading to a series of dives that led Io to take a nasty tumble. Shirai tweaked her knee during the exchange, and the latest edition of the NXT Injury Report lists her status as day-to-day.
Another brawl that went beyond the ring involved Shotzi Blackheart. After taking a loss to Shayna Baszler on the show, Deonna Purazzo attacked her backstage, inflicting injuries on Shotzi’s back and shoulders. The green-haired competitor is also listed as day-to-day. Joaquin Wilde is also down for the count after eating defeat from Finn Balor, as he’s going in for X-Rays to ensure that his ribs are fine after that match.
