Major NXT Star Injured Heading Into NXT TakeOver?

WWE has revealed that a major NXT star has picked up an injury ahead of their big NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver match.

Io Shirai will put her NXT Women’s Championship on the line against Raquel Gonzalez at the April NXT TakeOver show. On the latest episode of NXT, Shirai was slammed on the announcer’s table by her Stand & Deliver challenger.

During the latest NXT Injury Report, it was announced that Shirai had picked up a lower-back injury during the segment. Shirai has been evaluated and was medically cleared to defend her title next month.

More information surrounding Jessi Kamea’s injury was also given. It was noted that she is listed as day-to-day on the status list after injuring her ankle during training.

Kamea was originally meant to team with Aliyah to challenge for the NXT Women’s Tag Team Championships on this week’s NXT. Mercedez Martinez replaced Kamea, but was unsuccessful against Ember Moon and Shotzi Blackheart.

It was also revealed that Drake Maverick has suffered multiple injuries in his recent match with WALTER, with his status unclear as of writing.

It is worth remembering that NXT Injury Report often reports on both storyline and real injuries. Stay tuned to WrestleTalk for potential updates on these competitors’ conditions.
