As first reported by Dave Meltzer, NXT Star, Aleister Black, was injured during a NXT Live Event show this past Saturday in Las Vegas at the Orleans Arena during a match with NXT Champion, Tommaso Ciampa. The injury occurred when Ciampa delivered a blow to Black’s groin, causing emergency surgery.
Recovery time on a situation like this is a case by case basis, but the likelihood of him working a match at TakeOver in full compacity is not promising. We say Full match because he may come out and be written off television. He may be written off before, but due to surgery on a Monday, there is little time on a low end for recovery.
