Arturo Ruas Suffers Injury On NXT, Rhea Ripley Has Five Earrings Ripped Off


WWE has confirmed rumors of Arturo Ruas suffering a right biceps injury during his NXT match against Kushida this week. Fightful Select reports that there were creative plans in place for Ruas, but those are being put on hold until he is cleared.

Additionally, Rhea Ripley was banged up coming out of her NXT Women’s Championship main event against Io Shirai. Ripley had five earrings ripped out during the bout, resulting in doctors removing pieces of skin to help it look as close to normal as possible.

NXT’s injury report also notes Shirai suffered a sore neck and whiplash.
