WWE NXT News: Paige Injury Confirmed & Latest On Sami Zayn’s Return
Two of WWE NXT’s top stars are currently out of action dealing with injuries.
It was speculated earlier this week that WWE NXT Women’s Champion Paige may be injured. PWMania.com can confirm she is not 100%, however the nature of her injury is unclear. She did not wrestle at Thursday night’s NXT tapings from Full Sail University (airing 1/15-2/12). The soonest we’d see her back on the NXT TV show is the special February 27th taping that will air live on the WWE Network. At Thursday’s tapings, NXT Diva Emma said acknowledged that Paige was “not 100%” and challenged her to a title match when she’s back in action.
Sami Zayn recently tweaked his knee and was on crutches at Thursday’s NXT tapings. He’s expected to only miss a few weeks of ring time and return to action within the next month.
