R-Truth confirmed the injury he suffered on the November 1 episode of WWE NXT in a video shared on social media.
R-Truth’s most recent match was on NXT against Grayson Waller last Tuesday, where he had to be helped by the medical staff to the backstage area following a dive over the top rope that saw him land awkwardly on the mat.
The referee gave Waller the win after stopping the match. Waller then cut a heel promo after the match because it was cut short unexpectedly.
The bout was set up after R-Truth made an appearance the previous week when Waller interrupted NXT North American Champion Wes Lee, who was addressing the NXT crowd over his win at Halloween Havoc on October 22.

Before the injury, he made appearances on NXT and WWE Main Event. We wish him a speedy recovery.
