WWE will sometimes kayfabe their injuries on NXT for whatever reason, but we have word of an injury that is legitimate.
Arturo Ruas, who was apparently sent back to NXT from the RAW brand, was injured as he faced KUSHIDA this week on NXT. Fightful Select reports that it is believed Ruas suffered a torn biceps.
Ruas also filmed additional content for WWE digital, but it wasn’t used. It was said that WWE planned on moving him to the NXT brand as more than a one-off appearance. They apparently had plans for him in the storyline.
As of this writing, there is no word on the extent of his injuries and whether he will need surgery. We’re wishing him the best right now because his return to NXT was not supposed to go that way at all.
