On Wednesday night, WWE NXT viewers were left in shock after witnessing NXT star Roxanne Perez collapse with exhaustion and be stretchered out of the ring.
The incident occurred during a match between Perez and NXT Women’s Champion Io Shirai. The match had been going on for some time, with both competitors displaying a high level of athleticism and intensity. However, as the match progressed, it became clear that Perez was struggling to keep up with Shirai’s pace.
At one point, Perez attempted a high-risk move, but was unable to complete it. She then collapsed to the mat, and the referee immediately called for medical assistance. The medical team quickly arrived and began to assess Perez’s condition. After a few minutes, it was determined that she was too exhausted to continue and she was stretchered out of the ring.
The incident left viewers in shock, as it was clear that Perez had pushed herself to her limits in an attempt to win the match. It was also a reminder of the physical toll that professional wrestling can take on its athletes.
Perez was taken to a local medical facility for further evaluation. While there has been no official word on her condition, it is believed that she is doing well and is expected to make a full recovery.
The incident has sparked a debate about the safety of professional wrestling, with some arguing that the physical demands of the sport are too great for its athletes. Others have argued that the incident was an isolated one, and that the WWE takes the safety of its athletes very seriously.
Regardless of the debate, it is clear that the incident has left a lasting impression on viewers. It is a reminder of the physical and mental toll that professional wrestling can take on its athletes, and a reminder that safety should always be a top priority.
