NXT Champion Finn Balor recently injured his ankle at the NXT live event from Nashville, Tennessee. In an update, WWE has said the injury is said to be a severe sprain.
Balor notes that he hopes to be back on the road this weekend
In an interview with new project The World According To Wrestling, the former head trainer at NXT Bill DeMott said he would put the ability of the NXT women’s division up against any wrestling locker room in the country.
"I’ve been in almost every development system there’s been and I remember years and systems where there were no women. The difference for me now is that these girls are athletes and they want to wrestle. Not only do they want to entertain but they want to wrestle. I think if they are given the opportunity to headline Raw, they are going to run with it. They are changing the face of sports entertainment now and the hard part is telling them they don’t have to do it all at once. And I think that’s what helped escalate NXT because two years ago the women’s division at the time wasn’t getting the opportunities on the two and three hour shows but on NXT they were featured. They answered the bell and when I was there I would put the women in that locker room up against any men’s locker room in the country."
WWE security removed a “Kevin Owens Is Fat” fan sign at the SmackDown tapings last night. Owens responded to the sign on Twitter:
Considering the source and the fact that he was most likely out of breath from making the sign, it didn’t bother me. https://t.co/bN551knLDA— Kevin Owens (@FightOwensFight) February 17, 2016
