After suffering an injury at a Live Event in Las Vegas at the end of June, the status of NXT Superstar Aleister Black for TakeOver: Brooklyn IV on August 18th has been in serious jeopardy.
Black underwent surgery shortly after for a groin injury, with initial reports claiming he may still be able to compete. However, following last night’s episode of NXT, an angle was run where Aleister had been mysteriously attacked outside of the building in the parking lot (read about that here) as WWE seemingly was giving themselves an out for the previously announced Triple Threat NXT Title match that would have seen Black face Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa.
NXT General Manager William Regal has no announced that Aleister is official out for TakeOver, stating that the NXT Title match will now be Gargano vs. Ciampa in a Last Man Standing match:
