WWE was setting Ridge Holland up with a good push in NXT. Many backstage were praising his potential, but now he is apparently injured which is never in the plans.
Ridge Holland was injured during NXT this week. He suffered either a broken ankle or another serious foot injury of some kind. This was legitimate and not part of the show.
This took place during the post-match brawl with Oney Lorcan. Holland beat Danny Burch, and then Lorcan stood up for his tag team partner. Lorcan hit a dive and Holland’s ankle buckled.
Holland was then stretchered out of the Capitol Wrestling Center after his ankle was in a very awkward position. As he left, Holland gave a thumbs up.
