During his time in NXT, Graves suffered a concussion for the first time during his feud with former WWE superstar Neville. That got him off television for some time. But again he returned in 2014. But unfortunately, after contesting in a six-man tag team match against Sami Zayn and The USOs, he suffered another concussion.
