Dream was seen "walking gingerly" and is reportedly dealing with lumbar pain following his NXT North American Championship loss to Roderick Strong.

Ruas needs to get x-rays on his fingers after they were snapped by Pete Dunne in their match.

Finally, Reeves suffered a nasty cut, which required stitches, and swelling under his eye after taking an elbow in his match against Damian Priest. He reportedly may have orbital damage but will need to be re-evaluated once the swelling goes down.

Matt Riddle and Killian Dain were also mentioned in the report, noting that both men are cleared for their Sept. 25 match after their wild street fight on Wednesday's episode.

In other NXT injury news, Pro Wrestling Sheet reports that Joaquin Wilde (formerly DJZ) is set to undergo surgery for a broken eye socket suffered back in July. Wilde is only expected to miss a few weeks following surgery.
