There has been an update on the status of a popular NXT star following last week’s shocking segment, courtesy of WWE.
On last week’s episode of NXT, Adam Cole viciously attacked Kyle O’Reilly in a scary angle. Whilst the segment ended with O’Reilly being stretchered away, it was reported that O’Reilly’s injury is part of the storyline.
On last night’s NXT, it was announced that O’Reilly suffered a herniated disc, and isn’t medically cleared to compete. Vic Joseph stated that he is expected to be out of action for around 4-6 weeks.
This is reportedly not a legitimate injury and is only to further his rivalry with Adam Cole, after Cole’s betrayal of The Undisputed Era.
During the latest episode of NXT, Cole “apologised” to O’Reilly before attacking Roderick Strong. O’Reilly took to Twitter to call out his attacker, retweeting WWE with his new opinion of Cole:
