NXT’s debut on USA Network received some high praise from fans and it did good viewership numbers as well. However, it appears that not all the news coming out of the show was positive.

In a new WWE Now video focusing on NXT, new on-air talent Matt Camp revealed that three of the current stars from the Black and Yellow brand are on the injured list after this week’s episode of the show.

The list includes The Velveteen Dream, Arturo Ruas, and Kona Reeves, three stars which all competed in various matches during the show’s TV debut.

Out of these three, Kona Reeves competed in a dark match against Damian Priest before the show got over and he got busted open during this bout.

In the video, Camp revealed that the NXT Star needed stitches and doctors suspect that he may have orbital damage. He will be re-evaluated once the swelling goes down.

Arturo Ruas competed in an on-air match with former WWE UK Champion Pete Dunne. He is on the ‘not cleared’ list after the bout and reportedly needed x-rays to his fingers after his loss to Dunne.

Finally, Velveteen Dream who was in the main event for the USA Broadcast of the show and defended his North American Title against Roderick Strong was “walking gingerly” after his match.

Dream lost this bout and according to reports, he is also on the not cleared list because he is suffering from lumbar pain. You can check out the video WWE posted below:
