WWE has released their weekly injury report for Wednesday’s NXT, putting the spotlight on three wrestlers who took a beating during the broadcast.
The newly surly Dakota Kai revealed on NXT TV that she was on the who attacked Mia Yim backstage at TakeOver. This led to an assault by the victim of the attack, with Yim returning from her attack and ready for next week’s showdown with Kai. Kai is said to have suffered facial injuries from the assault but will soldier on without any medical attention.
Rhea Ripley, who brought out Yim to ringside, caught an attack by Shayna Baszler and her two Horsewomen. After spending extended time in Shayna’s signature submission hold, Rhea has a “strained vocal box” and will seek further evaluation if necessary.
Finally, Pete Dunne and Killian Dane’s breakout brawl took its toll on the Brusierweight. The action reaggravated his existing knee injury, and he’s also feeling leg pain after an awkward landing off the top rope. He’s listed as day-to-day currently.
