As we all know, injuries happen far too often in the world of professional wrestling.
Former NXT Champion Aleister Black recently suffered a groin injury that required surgery, and he’s not expected to make it to NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn IV.
Another NXT Superstar who has been sitting on the sidelines for a few weeks is Ricochet.
Ricochet missed a dive during a NXT event in Paris back in June, and Triple H later said that he tweaked something, and he was pulled from the ring as a precautionary measure.
The NXT star did go on to compete at TakeOver: Chicago that month and the United Kingdom events at Royal Albert Hall, but he’s been out of action for the majority of the last six weeks.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, whatever Ricochet is dealing with is said not to be serious, and company officials just wanted to give him time off so he can heal up heading into his North American Title match against Adam Cole at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn IV.
