It was yesterday, one sad piece of news broke in for NXT star Ridge Holland fans. After match brawl with Oney Lorcan, Holland suffered a leg injury as he caught Lorcan off the dive with his ankle buckled.
Afterwards, Holland was loaded onto a stretcher and taken out of the Capitol Wrestling Center. Now the latest about the pro-wrestler is that he has undergone surgery.
