WWE will often call back to history during their angles to give longtime fans a little extra Easter egg. This week’s episode of NXT saw a full-fledged tribute to Shawn Michaels and Marty Jannetty’s Barbershop Incident, as Jacy Jayne turned on Gigi Dolin in violent fashion. It seems that WWE will keep Gigi off television for a bit after that.

Many fans were shocked by this turn of events, especially how hard Gigi Dolin took a kick to the face during that segment. The aftermath photo was quite disturbing, but there’s an overall plan.

“She got whacked pretty good on that one, that kick,” Dave Meltzer noted during Wrestling Observer Radio about Gigi Dolin’s injury. She was kicked pretty hard, and he said that the door malfunctioned and didn’t help things.

Bryan Alvarez then stated that, “the story is she’s gonna be alright, but they’re gonna keep her off television for a few weeks to sell it, and god knows they should. They should keep her off for a month after that, she was slaughtered.”


Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne’s rivalry was turned to by a few big notches this week on NXT. The turn came out of nowhere, but that surprise factor is just what they were looking for. Thankfully, Gigi Dolin wasn’t really injured during that terrible beatdown.

We will have to see how this storyline progresses in the weeks to come. They obviously have fans’ attention. For more on this story, and everything else going on in the pro wrestling world, stay tuned to Ringside News.
