Cole was advertised as making an appearance at NXT events in Missouri, Iowa, and Mississippi.

Cole had been sporting a cast leading up to Wednesday's episode of NXT. He hasn't wrestled since Aug. 24 when he battled Bronson Reed at a live event in Tampa. Cole only wrestled four times in August and only twice following his two-out-of-three falls bout against Johnny Gargano at NXT TakeOver: Toronto on Aug. 10.

Despite being pulled from live events, Cole is still scheduled to defend the NXT Title against Matt Riddle on the Oct. 2 edition of NXT. Cole addressed the match in a recent social media post, where he also showed off his cast.

Fightful will have live coverage of NXT on Oct. 2 beginning at 8 p.m. ET.
