WWE NXT referee Tom Castor announce on social media that he suffered an injury during a match on this past Wednesday’s episode.
Castor was the referee for the NXT Women’s Championship match which saw Io Shirai retain against Toni Storm.
He took to Instagram, writing that he tore his bicep during that match. You may also remember that Castor broke his ankle while refereeing a match in 2019.
How awesome was the match between @shirai_io and @tonistorm_ from this past Wednesday night?!? Little did I know when I handed Io her championship that this would end up being my last match for the foreseeable future.
Yesterday morning, I unfortunately tore my bicep off the bone which will now require surgery.
As disappointed as I am, I am also a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. When I broke my ankle in 2019, I grew so much mentally and physically. I came back from that injury in better shape, more focused and more confident than I’d been in years. I have no doubt that through this new injury I will continue to grow yet again.
I know what the road ahead of me looks like. I know what work needs to be done. I’m already focused and determined to come back as soon as possible and rejoin my team.
No matter the length of this journey, I’m ready for it. I’ll be back soon. Because I love wrestling!
