Tony D’Angelo became one of the highlights of NXT television thanks to his solid character work. While he is gaining fanfare as of late, that has not helped him when it comes to injuries.
During the latest set of NXT tapings, D’Angelo seemed to suffer an injury while he was facing Wes Lee in a match that aired on September 27th. It was said that D’Angelo was sent into the turnbuckles, but he went down in the corner and was then checked out by doctors. The match was called, and D’Angelo had to be helped to the back.
During this week’s episode of NXT, Channing “Stacks” Lorenzo provided an injury update on Tony D’Angelo. In a backstage segment, Stacks accused Wes Lee of hurting D’Angelo intentionally warning Lee that his actions will have consequences. Stacks also revealed that D’Angelo’s PCL and the rest of his leg are going two separate ways, confirming D’Angelo’s knee injury.
“You’re a wolf in sheep’s clothing, my friend,” Stacks told Lee. “My friends are gone, but you are ruthless. You hit The Don’s leg, and now his PCL is going this way while the rest of his leg is going the other way. The Don and I know how to make things appear like an accident, but you know you hurt The Don on purpose. Your actions have consequences, Wes.”
It was said that Tony D’Angelo’s injury is not a serious one and is likely to return relatively soon. We will have to wait and see when The Don Of NXT will make his return to NXT television.
