NXT Star Suffers Serious Injury

The WWE is having a really bad year in terms of stars getting hurt, and sadly the injury bug looks to have bitten another wrestler, this time in NXT. is reporting that NXT Superstar Elias Samson suffered an injury this past Friday at the house show in Nashville, Tennessee. "The Drifter" was facing newly signed wrestler Andrade Almas when he fractured his ankle mid match, which had to be stopped after the ref threw up the "X".

Here is fan-filmed footage of Samson being attended to in the ring:

WWE physician Dr. Chris Amann said the following about the injury:

“The match had to be stopped due to the injury and Elias was helped to the back, unable to bear weight on the ankle. Elias will be put in a cast and crutches, but is expected to make a full recovery.”

Maybe he can work on a few tunes while he's in his crutches... We wish him a speedy recovery!
