Io Shirai was said to be alright backstage at WWE NXT Halloween Havoc after taking the nasty bump from the top of the ladder during the Scareway to Hell Ladder Match.

As noted, the Halloween Havoc opener saw Toxic Attraction’s Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne win the titles by defeating Shirai and Zoey Stark, and Persia Pirotta and Indi Hartwell.

There was a spot where Shirai and Indi fought for the ladder but Indi was knocked off. Shirai continued up until Indi tipped the ladder over, sending Shirai flying out of the ring, crashing onto a ladder bridge from the apron to the announce table. Shirai landed hard and hit the floor as fans chanted “holy shit!” while Indi looked concerned from the ring.

Shirai tweeted after the show and said she’s just sad she lost the titles.

“I am not dead. I will always keep getting up to do my best. Just sad that the title is not on my waist… #HalloweenHavoc #WWENXT,” she wrote.

    I don’t know… I thought the match was a mess, like a lot of the Havoc card. Too over produced and too much. All of the ladies, including the singles title match, were put into matches they just weren’t ready for. It looked phony as hell and made the entire NXT product look like rubbish. The first hour was some of the worst big event stuff I’ve ever seen from NXT. The rest wasn’t all that bad but the ladies stuff looked over rehearsed and over produced. They’re lucky none of the ladies were seriously injured after either match.
