The heart of the matter

WWE announced last night on NXT television that Lars Sullivan suffered from a broken jaw at NXT TakeOver: Chicago 2 during his match against Aleister Black. WWE also shared an X-Ray of Sullivan's head, confirming the injury.

Sullivan was unbeaten in singles competition in NXT until he came up against NXT Champion Aleister Black, Unfortunately for Sullivan, he will now be on the sidelines for some time. It remains to be seen if this was a work or not.

What's next?

With Lars Sullivan out of his way. Aleister Black will now focus on his next challenger, who seems to be Tommaso Ciampa. Ciampa's coming off a huge, but fluke, win over Johnny Gargano at TakeOver: Chicago 2 where he pinned Johnny Gargano with his hands handcuffed.

It is still unclear when Black and Ciampa will face off but it could come at the next NXT TakeOver. As for Lars Sullivan, no return date has been announced.
