Dakota Kai, Fandango, and Travis Banks land on NXT injury report

It was a wild week for NXT talent.

It was a wild Wednesday night for several NXT Superstars at Full Sail Arena. Not only was a new NXT Cruiserweight Champion crowned, but also an in-ring engagement, and several Superstars suffered injuries.

Perhaps most notable on the injury list is Dakota Kai. In a brutal post-match brawl, Mia Yim put Kai through a table and on the way down Kai’s head struck another table, leaving her with a serious laceration on her head.

The end result of the scary injury was eight staples in the back of Kai’s head. Thankfully she doesn’t appear to have a concussion and should be able to return to action soon. Kai has had an unfortunate history of injuries in NXT, the worst of which required surgery on her knee for a torn ACL.

Also injured at Wednesday night’s tapings was Fandango and Travis Banks. See the full injury report below.

  • Dakota Kai (declined medical staff’s recommendation of rest) – received eight staples to close laceration
  • Fandango (sent to the ER for imaging) – possible elbow dislocation
  • Travis Banks (day-to-day) – eyebrow laceration
