It looks like R-Truth may be out of action for a while, healing from a serious injury.
As previously noted, R-Truth’s most recent match was on NXT against Grayson Waller this past Tuesday, where he had to be helped by the medical staff to the backstage area after a dive over the top rope saw R-Truth land awkwardly on the mat.
In the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer reported that R-Truth may have suffered from a serious injury.
Meltzer wrote, “This wasn’t confirmed at press time, but the belief was that he tore his quad, which is a very serious injury that could keep him out for a long time.”
Waller was declared the winner due to the referee’s decision to stop it. He then cut a promo after the match because it was cut short unexpectedly.
This was after R-Truth made an appearance the following week when Waller interrupted NXT North American Champion Wes Lee, who was addressing the NXT crowd over his win at Halloween Havoc on October 22.
