• Timothy Thatcher suffers a “minor injury” and will have to take a time out of action, postponing the fight against Ciampa in the Fight Pit of NXT

WWE has confirmed through its social networks that Timothy Thatcher, an NXT fighter, is undergoing “a minor injury”, without specifying further details. Due to this, the company has decided to postpone the meeting it had scheduled for today, where it was going to face Tommaso Ciampa in a Fight Pit during the special “NXT New Year’s Evil”.

William Regal, General Manager of NXT, has reported on the situation, indicating that the medical team detected that the fighter had suffered a minor injury while training for tonight’s match. With the proper rehabilitation, Thatcher will be able to return to the ring “soon”, without indicating a guideline date. However, Regal says that as soon as he recovers, Ciampa and Thatcher will be able to resolve their differences inside the “Fight Pit.”

A few hours ago we reported that WWE had withdrawn the match between Thatcher and Ciampa from today’s NXT card. The company removed several recent mentions on social media to the fight in the “Fight Pit” and also the article about the duel on WWE.com, without giving any explanation about it.

It should be remembered that tonight the special “NXT New Year’s Evil” will be broadcast live on USA Network. The show will be held from the Capitol Wrestling Center in Florida and will be presented “with fewer interruptions,” reducing the number of publicity breaks in some of the key matches.
