The biggest news coming out of last week’s NXT were very negative. Finn Balor confirmed his injury as a broken jaw which required surgery. Then, Ridge Holland suffered a horrifying injury as his legs gave out when he attempted to catch Oney Lorcan on a dive.
While these were the biggest news stories, there were some positive moments as well. Fightful Select (subscription required) is currently reporting that a number of segments from last week’s show were heavily praised backstage.
The report says the segments involving Johnny Gargano, Candice LeRae, and Indi Hartwell in particular received praise. Additionally, the report states that they were told by one person that NXT made Hartwell on the show without having her name on screen.
The NXT women’s division continues to get more and more stacked as of late. The returns of Ember Moon and Toni Storm have added them into the mix, elevating the division as a whole in the process. If Hartwell is able to capitalize on this praise, she could easily work her way into the mix of the top stars in the division.
