Tony D'Angelo was injured during a match with Wes Lee during the WWE NXT tapings a few weeks ago that aired on Tuesday’s episode of the weekly show.

D'Angelo attempted to splash him in the corner, but he fell and hit his face on the second turnbuckle. D'Angelo's right knee, which crashed to the ground when he tripped, was injured. D’Angelo couldn’t get to his feet. The medical staff checked on him, and the match was stopped.

By winning the match by referee stoppage, Lee joined Oro Mensah and Carmelo Hayes in the five-man NXT North American Championship Ladder Match at next month’s Halloween Havoc special.

While speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that D’Angelo is not dealing with a severe injury that will cause him to undergo surgery.

“From what I understand, it’s not that bad in the sense that I don’t think it’s major surgery or anything. I’ve heard he’ll be back sooner than you would think, but he is hurt.”

Best wishes to Tony D'Angelo on a speedy recovery.
