TK Cooper was injured during a high-risk spot off the top rope at PROGRESS Wrestling’s first-ever show in New York City. According to fans in attendance, the match was immediately stopped after the referee threw up the “X” sign and eventually restarted as a handicap match.
TK Coopers ankle is bent backwards…. emergency is happening, people are panicking.

We heard from a couple of fans at the show saying that it was very hot and at least one person passed out, apparently from the heat.
