In one of our articles published yesterday, we reported a couple of injuries that affected two WWE athletes, namely Kofi Kingston and Tyler Bate. As for Tyler Bate, commentator Michael Cole said that he will be out of the game for a while, not specifying how much, due to an injury suffered on the July 2 episode of WWE NXT.

Unlike Kofi Kingston, it has not been specified his injury, but just know that he got it in a match against Hank Walker & Tank Ledger alongside his tag team partner Pete Dunne.

New details on Tyler Bate's injury

To come to our rescue a few hours later for details, it was Tyler Bate himself through a post on Instagram, revealing that he tore his left major pectoral and tendon from the bone on the July 2 episode of NXT: "I tore my left pec and tendon off my bone last week at NXT.

Yesterday’s surgery was successful and everything was put back in its place. I’ll be away for a while as I recover, so don’t miss me too much. I’m in a good mood and I can’t wait to see you again soon, so much love." For an injury like this, we talk about 4-6 months absence from the ring.

On May 11, 2024, NJPW staged the Resurgence event where Eddie Kingston defended his NJPW STRONG Openweight Championship against Gabe Kidd in a Last Man Standing Match before being brutally attacked by the Young Bucks and Jack Perry.

It was later reported by Fightful that Eddie Kingston injured his leg during the match and the injury was confirmed by AEW who replaced him with Darby Allin at Double or Nothing. Eddie Kingston had confirmed that due to the nature of his injuries, he could not operate until July 2024, and so it was, as he himself announced on Instagram with a picture of him on a hospital bed with the description that says, "Well, that’s it. So, how’s it going?" For him they talk about 10 months or more absence.
