Between October and November 2021, during an episode of NXT 2.0, we saw Zoey Stark being attacked backstage by the Toxic Attraction duo, Gigi Dolin and Jacey Jayne, while Mandy Rose was enjoying the show comfortably in the ring.
In the segment, the two were brutally attacking the left knee of the former tag team champion, before the officers could intervene to stop them and give Stark some respite. This attack came shortly after POST-Wrestlin's John Pollock reported that Zoey was indeed injured, but nothing was specified until the wrestler herself then revealed that she actually injured her knee and then underwent surgery.
his rehabilitation process. While for Io Shirai the thing happened much more in the shadows, in the sense that we did not know about her injury to her leg until we saw some photos online on social media with colleagues where the wrestler was visibly wearing a brace and had a crutch.
In one of the latest updates to come thanks to the well-known Fightful Select, we learned that: “Shirai has been kept out of the action for two months since the last NXT Stand & Deliver and hasn't been seen at all on NXT's TV shows.
After numerous questions on the subject, a WWE source confirmed to us that the girl was ousted due to an injury, but the severity of the same has not yet been worked out. We were also confirmed that in any case the girl had already been excluded from all creative plans, to await further news regarding her physical matter"
NXT produces many talents
Since his October 26, 2021 debut at Halloween Havoc, the NXT 2.0 Superstar known as Solo Sikoa has taken the world by storm with his in-ring skills. Coincidentally these two wrestlers have also been couple mates and won belts and now find themselves facing an injury that is keeping them out of the ring, although according to Dave Meltzer, they should be back "relatively soon"
Unfortunately, no precise date or time frame was given to take into account, but the reporter seemed positive that we could see them again soon. Sikoa was signed to the Las Vegas-based promotion, Future Stars of Wrestling. He ended Graves' 258-day FSW Nevada State Championship reign by defeating him at No Escape 2019.
WWE Hall of Famer Rikishi witnessed Solo's championship win, even delivering a Stinkface to the opponent's manager, Sal E. "The Street Champion" also won gold at the Arizona Wrestling Federation, winning the company's most prestigious title, the AWF Heavyweight Championship.
