We noted before how Aleister Black was not expected to compete at the upcoming NXT Takeover: Brooklyn IV due to his injury despite being announced for the event.
The only thing that was to be seen was how WWE handled this situation and it turns out, they have decided to turn Black’s injury into an angle.
After this week’s episode of NXT went off air, WWE posted the following video where William Regal was called by an employee and when he rushed to the parking lot, he found an unconscious Black lying on the ground:

What’s interesting to note here is that in the same video the company also established multiple suspects for this injury angle, including Johnny Gargano and The Undisputed Era.
Now it’d be interesting to see how this angle unfolds and who is revealed to be the mystery attacker of the former NXT Champion when he returns from the injury.
