Top WWE NXT star dealing with an injury

WWE NXT Superstar Kyle O’Reilly shared some unfortunate news on social media.

O’Reilly was supposed to be in action at the UK Download Festival taking place this week. However, he won’t be appearing as originally scheduled due to him dealing with a back injury. O’Reilly did work the NXT TV tapings on Wednesday and Thursday but wasn’t in action. He made the announcement with this post on his official Twitter account:

“The medical man told me my back is still hurt so unfortunately I won’t be able to attend @DownloadFest this year. Im sorry to all the great UK fans, believe me I’m gutted to be missing @Tool but at least now @rikbugez has an actual chance of winning the air guitar contest,” O’Reilly wrote.

NXT UK will run the Download Festival today, Saturday and Sunday. During this time, WWE will hold regular matches as well as tape episodes of the TNXT UK TV weekly television show for the WWE Network.

As of this writing, there’s no word yet on when he’ll be able to return to in-ring action.
