The latest NXT injury report is online with updates on several stars after NXT New Year’s Evil including Rhea Ripley, Raquel Gonzalez, and more.
The following injuries were announced coming out of this week’s NXT episode on the USA Network, which are usually part of the storylines, at least for the most part:
* Rhea Ripley and Raquel Gonzalez suffered bruises and contusions in Wednesday’s Last Woman Standing match, which Gonzalez won. They are not currently medically cleared to compete and are considered to be day-to-day
* Timothy Thatcher is expected to return to action soon from the injury he suffered while training for the Fight Pit II bout with Tommaso Ciampa. Camp confirmed that the Fight Pit match will take place when Thatcher is able to return. It was reported on Thursday that Thatcher is not legitimately injured
* Katrina Cortez suffered facial bruising and a possible orbital bone injury from the spin kick delivered by Xia Li in their New Year’s Evil match
* Austin Theory suffered a groin injury on Wednesday night but is cleared to compete as symptoms allow. Theory took a projectile below the belt from Shotzi Blackheart’s tank, and later suffered more damage when Kushida dropped NXT North American Champion Johnny Gargano face-first into Theory’s groin with a drop toe hold
