Joe Gacy found himself in the spotlight this week following legitimate injury scare during his match on the latest edition of NXT.

Gacy squared off against NXT North American Champion Oba Femi on Tuesday’s show, but the match took an unexpected turn when the referee signaled for medical attention using the ‘X’ hand motion, indicating a genuine injury concern.

Reports emerged afterward, with Fightful’s Corey Brennan confirming that legitimate concussion protocol was initiated. However, early examinations suggested that Gacy was expected to be okay. Taking to Twitter to address the situation, Gacy reassured fans of his well-being.

In his tweet, Gacy expressed gratitude to everyone who checked in on him, confirming that he was indeed a bit sore but ultimately fine. He also affirmed that his scheduled match for the NXT Stand & Deliver Kickoff event would proceed as planned, signing off with the hashtag #kingofthekickoff.


Responding to a commenter who speculated that the injury scare might have been a planned spot, Gacy clarified that it was indeed a legitimate concern. Despite the setback, Gacy remains determined and focused on his upcoming match against Shawn Spears during Saturday’s NXT Stand & Deliver pre-show.

Amidst the anticipation for Gacy’s match, there’s also a tease of a mystery appearance slated for the event, adding an extra layer of intrigue to the proceedings. As the NXT universe gears up for an eventful weekend, fans eagerly await Gacy’s return to the ring and the unfolding drama that awaits at Stand & Deliver.
