WWE booked a singles match between Kacy Catanzaro and Xia Li on this week’s episode of NXT in Orlando, Florida at the Capitol Wrestling Center on the USA Network.
She got beatdown by Li, which appears to be a way to write her off television. WWE had it mentioned on commentary that Catanzaro might have suffered a broken leg due to the attack.
Dave Meltzer noted on today’s Wrestling Observer Radio that this angle was likely done as a reason for her being on the sidelines for a few months.
“Kacy Catanzaro must be injured legit because they said she had a broken leg, right? When they say she’s got a broken leg that means she’ll be out for months because that’s an excuse for a real injury. She also had a big brace on that knee, to begin with, so she’s obviously really hurt.”
Bryan Alvarez pointed out how she was doing various spots and jumping around. Meltzer followed up with, “Yeah, but they don’t say you have a broken leg and then you come back in two weeks. There’s a story..whatever it is, they wouldn’t do that if it wasn’t legit.”
