Ridge Holland caught Oney Lorcan’s dive on NXT this week, and Holland’s ankle buckled. It didn’t take the company very long at all to get him under the knife and on his way to recoperation.
Ridge Holland had surgery today to repair a left ankle dislocation and fracture. His right knee patellar was also dislocated and he had a patellar tendon rupture as well. This was a series of injuries that could take a long time to heal up.
WWE’s medical staff was able to set his dislocated knee at ringside, but the ankle dislocation was repaired when he got to the hospital. There is no current timetable for his return.
This is terrible timing for Ridge Holland. Some were looking at him as NXT’s next big thing. Now he is on the shelf until this unfortunate incident is behind him.
