Aleister Black was injured at a live event. The injury occurred at a house show in Las Vegas this past Saturday night. During the match, he was crotched. All we know is that he’ll need surgery. Despite how it looked when it was happening, the injury is not terrible and he’ll be perfectly fine after surgery.
This does make him quite questionable for “TakeOver: Brooklyn 4” on which he was scheduled to face off in a Triple Thread match against Johnny Gargano and Tomasso Ciampa for the NXT Championship.
Botch Take: I was so looking forward to that match and I’m sorry I’m not likely to see it. I was also into the idea of a feud between Gargano and Black. We’ll likely still get it; it’ll just have to wait a little while.
