The Drifter won’t be strumming in the ring for a while

Wrestling is a tough business - injuries and concussions and many other types of damage to the human body are all too common. Even though it involves a lot of risks, wrestlers still perform in the ring every week. No matter how good you are at the art, sometimes injuries are inevitable. NXT wrestler Elias Samson was unfortunate to fracture his ankle while performing in Nashville.

Samson fractured his left ankle and it will keep him out of action for a long time. It was reported that the match had to be stopped because of the injury. Samson was carried out of the ring by doctors and other officials after he was unable to carry his weight on the ankle. 

Fans, officials and wrestlers hope they never see referees hold up the ‘X’ gesture, indicating a serious injury and a virtual SOS. The ringside physician Dr. Chris Amann told the WWE.com that Samson will be put on cast and crutches. The doctor also has said that he can make a comeback and the injury can heal.
