An NXT star whose last TV match was back in February has revealed the reason for his absence and how much longer he could be out for.
We’ve seen Kona Reeves in the crowds for WWE‘s TV tapings but not in the ring since the February 19 episode of NXT TV when he lost to Keith Lee.
Speaking on former NXT star Dan Matha’s podcast, Reeves said:
“I am, I am [getting ready to make a comeback]. Been out for about, what is it? I got surgery March 14th. My last match was with you [Dan Matha].
“I had five anchors put inside of there. I was taking a clothesline in the six-man that we were in, over the top rope and I was coming down. My shoulder hit the apron pretty hard and just whoop. Popped out and I could tell right away. I remember you came up to me and you’re like, ‘Yo! Kona! What’s up man? You good?’ I’m like, ‘Nah dude, I think my shoulder’s out.’
“I am looking forward to coming back. They said maybe a month from now, I can probably start getting back in the ring and then two months I’ll be cleared. So, I’ve just been on the grind right now man.”
Everyone at WrestleTalk.com wishes Reeves the best in his ongoing recovery and hopefully he’ll be fit and ready to compete again soon.
