It was reported that NXT Superstar Elias Samson suffered an injury at an NXT Live Event on Friday evening.
It has now been revealed that Sampson fractured his left ankle during a match against Andrade Cien Almas in Nashville, Tennessee.
“The match had to be stopped due to the injury and Elias was helped to the back, unable to bear weight on the ankle,” WWE ringside physician Dr. Chris Amann said to WWE.com on Monday. “Elias will be put in a cast and crutches, but is expected to make a full recovery.”
Samson reportedly suffered the injury during the match when he attempted to hit the Stun Gun on him and his leg gave out. He had to be helped to the back immediately after the match.
