Karrion Kross challenged Keith Lee for the NXT Championship at NXT TakeOver: XXX. After an intense match, Kross defeated Lee to become the champion. However, many fans wondered if he had suffered an injury during the match.
Unfortunately, it seems Kross did, in fact, suffer a legitimate injury. WWE has officially confirmed that he has a separated shoulder. He will be undergoing an MRI on Monday in order to ascertain the severity of the injury.
WWE medical staff confirmed that Kross sustained a separated acromioclavicular joint during his battle with The Limitless One. Despite the injury, a determined Kross took down the champion, showing incredible toughness by lifting Lee up for a devastating Doomsday Saito off the middle rope to claim the NXT Championship.
This is certainly unfortunate timing for Kross as he just won the NXT Championship. The Doomsday Saito was performed despite Kross damaging his shoulder. We hope the injury is too serious and will keep you updated on his condition once we get to know more.
