WWE Rumors: Speculation On Injury To NXT Superstar While Overseas

Published

on

We’re just a few days away now from NXT TakeOver: Chicago II this Saturday from the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois, with a number of big matches set for the event. As noted, the Superstars of WWE NXT have been overseas for this past weekend’s Download Fest in England, followed by Live Events on Monday in Paris, France and then last night in Antwerp, Belgium.

On Monday, NXT Superstar Ricochet was in action in Paris (which you can find results of here), teaming up with Johnny Gargano to face the duo of Tommaso Ciampa and The Velveteen Dream. During one spot in the match, ‘The One and Only’ Ricochet flew through the ropes to the outside with a suicide dive, however something went awry and he flew over the top of The Velveteen Dream. Ricochet would land hard on the floor and begin writhing in pain, leading to the referee to call to the back for help and use the dreaded “X” gesture to signify a legitimate injury. Ricochet would be helped to the back, leading to lots of talk regarding his upcoming TakeOver match against Velveteen Dream:

It should be noted that following the conclusion of the match, Ricochet would make his way back out to celebrate the victory and it’s being said that he did not show any signs of injury. ‘The One and Only’ did not appear last night in Antwerp, Belgium, but did note that was headed back to the United States this morning with the rest of the roster:

EA’s Take:¬†Ricochet is just fine people. #UseYourHead. If he was actually injured then he wouldn’t have come back out after the match. He likely wouldn’t have hung out overseas for an additional 24 hours either and taken the first flight he could get to the USA to be checked out. Everything looks like it was just precautionary.

WWE News: John Cena Speaks On Not Being Able To Wrestle While Filming A Movie

Published

John Cena
John Cena talks retirement, being told he can’t wrestle while filming and more!

It’s no secret that the man who has been the face of the WWE for over a decade, John Cena, is winding down his in-ring career as the past couple of years have seen the 16-time champion spend less time with the company and more on outside projects.





‘The Leader of the Cenation’ will be making his WWE return this month on December 26th (see his upcoming WWE schedule here) after last competing at Super Show-Down in October, while at the same time his newest film ‘Bumblebee’ will be hitting theaters this Christmas. He has already confirmed that he will be at WrestleMania 35, so it’s expected he will be sticking around from his return until at least then.

Cena sat down with ESPN’s Cari Champion recently to promote the release of ‘Bumblebee’ and spoke on a number of topics including retirement from the ring and why he can’t compete inside the squared circle while he’s shooting a movie. When asked if he ever thinks to himself, “This is it for wrestling”, Cena responded:

“Well, that’s like asking an athlete like, ‘Hey, do you ever contemplate retirement?’, and you can ask a professional rookie that. You have to because anything that you rely on your body for an end result, time is gonna catch up with you. So there is gonna come a point where I can no longer keep up with the pace. I made a promise to myself years ago, years before I ever found my passion for being on-screen, when I can’t keep up with the pace I gotta walk away. I don’t wanna take a buyer’s money and have sit down and be like, ‘Ah, he’s just hanging on’. I don’t ever want that feeling.”

Cena would continue and speak about why he wants to wrestle while shooting movie and can’t, as well as how he previously misjudged The Rock by not understanding what comes with shooting a movie:

“So I don’t think that correlates with what I’m doing now. The biggest difficulty is trying to juggle stuff because I have learned and I’m trying to fight the system, but I’m losing, when you’re in production for a movie they don’t allow you to wrestle because I can’t go to a WWE taping, have my nose put over here [in reference to his broken nose in a match against Seth Rollins]. Not only does it not look good, ‘Man, you don’t look right’. So then they shut the movie down and there’s 150 people that are expecting a paycheck for that movie and I just screwed them out of their wage and it ups the budget of the movie, so I just put the movie behind the eight ball of possibly being a financial success.

So as much as I want to do everything, you can’t and this is a GIANT misunderstanding I had with what Dwayne was doing, what The Rock was doing ’cause he does movie after movie after movie after movie and I know the feeling of wanting to go back and I’m going back as soon as I can, but I can’t go back until I’m done with this. So I totally get it and I kinda called him out for it and that was me being an ass and I was totally wrong and ignorant and young and stupid and I’ve told him, ‘I’m sorry’, but it’s something I think that our fans don’t understand. If LeBron James was to take a break from basketball because he had the opportunity to film something, basketball fans would be like, ‘What are you doing? Go back to basketball’. So I understand the resentment, but it’s a tough balancing act and I’m bold enough to try.”
