WWE NXT has several talented professional wrestlers who give it their all to entertain fans, but injuries are always a common occurrence now. This includes Eddy Thorpe, who was gone for a long time and now the reason for his absence has been revealed.

Eddy Thorpe recently returned to action on the March 19th taping of NXT Level Up. He was gone for a considerable amount of time and fans wondered just what happened to him.

According to a report from Fightful Select, Thorpe had been absent due to a hip injury sustained during a match with Dijak, which NXT officials described as a freak accident. This marked his second injury, as he was also sidelined in the fall of 2023. However, Thorpe is now healthy and expected to be back for future programming.

”Fightful Select has learned that Eddy Thorpe suffered a “freak accident” hip injury in his NXT Underground match with Dijak in December and is expected back on NXT TV soon.”


We will have to wait and see what NXT will have planned for Eddy Thorpe now that he is healthy and back in action. Perhaps he will get involved in a longstanding feud as soon as possible.
