Three Superstars injured
According to the latest video released by WWE Now, Velveteen Dream, Arturo Ruas, and Kona Reeves all suffered injuries at the show, and are not cleared to compete at this moment. The announcement was made by WWE's Matt Camp.
Reeves was busted open in his pre-show dark match against Damien Priest. According to Camp, Reeves may have orbital damage. He will be re-evaluated once his swelling goes down.
Pete Dunne defeated Ruas by targeting his fingers, following a hard-fought contest. The latter reportedly needed X-rays to check for injuries to his fingers, and is also currently on the NXT injury report list. Following his loss to Roderick Strong, Velveteen Dream was seen "walking gingerly" backstage. Dream suffered from lumbar pain and is on the list too.
