Rhea Ripley suffered multiple contusions and abrasions on both ears after having five earrings ripped off during the match. Doctors had to remove pieces of skin from her ear to "make her ear look normal again." 

Meanwhile, Io Shirai is suffering from a sore neck and whiplash. She is not medically cleared but doctors are confident she won't be out long. 

Along with Shirai and Ripley, Arturo Ruas suffered a right bicep injury against Kushida. He will go for an MRI and is not medically cleared. 

The NXT injury report is a blend of kayfabe and reality. You can view the entire report in the video above.
