Pro Wrestling Sheet has confirmed Aleister Black recently went under the knife after injuring his groin at a live event and it’s possible he’ll miss NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn.
The Wrestling Observer first reported Aleister’s injury occurred at a live event in Las Vegas over the weekend and described the situation as “quite serious.”
Sources tell us Black underwent surgery this week to repair the torn groin and he’s definitely not confirmed at this point for TakeOver: Brooklyn on August 18.
Recovery time for this sort of procedure is typically three weeks or longer.
We’ll keep you updated if any additional information is made public by WWE.
