WWE Star Injured During Big Championship Match WWE

There was mid-match chaos in the NXT Spring Breakin’ main event as the NXT Women’s Champ was injured during the match.

When Tiffany Stratton hit a big dive off the top rope to the outside, her landing looked awkward as champion Indi Hartwell appeared to take the brunt of the fall, catching Stratton with Hartwell’s leg ending up in a bad position.

With Hartwell down at ringside, Roxanne Perez and Stratton continued the match while the crowd was largely silent for a period, staring at what was going on with the current NXT Women’s Champion.

Hartwell was then taken to the back by a member of the medical team as she’d legitimately gotten hurt.

However she wouldn’t stay down as she ran back out (albeit slowly) to continue to defend her title by the end of the match.

Powering through the adversity, Hartwell rejoined the match with a hobble but valiantly fought on regardless.

After battling back, Indi Hartwell was able to pin Roxanne Perez to retain her NXT Women’s Championship after pulling Tiffany Stratton out of the ring when Stratton herself had tried to pin Perez.

Based on the reception and praise for Hartwell from NXT talent on Twitter, including heels Jacy Jayne and Grayson Waller so it would be out of character for them to praise her, it seems her injury was legitimate.

Dijak also tweeted he was with Hartwell in medical when she was getting it looked at and she was “no selling the s**t out of it like an absolute badass”.

Evidently, the decision was made that she was able to go back out for the end of the match, but the injury itself wasn’t a planned storyline or anything like that, it was legitimate.

Recapping the rest of NXT, earlier in the show, former NXT Champion Bron Breakker showed off a new look and a new catchphrase. You can read more about that by clicking here.
