NXT TakeOver: WarGames is officially over and fans are still digesting the high octane and intense action from the entire night.

In the post-TakeOver media call, Mike Johnson of PWInsider asked Triple H about Candice LeRae suffering an injury.

He said, “So right now it’s bumps and bruises out of everybody that you would expect out of this. Candice is getting checked out now. Getting her X-Ray to checked out now so I don’t really have a status update yet on that. Possibly a broken arm, maybe, we’re not sure yet. We’ll see where that goes.”


It looks like Candice LeRae injured her right arm in the final ten minutes of the match when Shotzi Blackheart climbed the top of the ladder and hit a Denton. Although LeRae pulled the chair over herself to inflict some damage on Shotzi, it seems it was at this moment LeRae broke her arm.

Even after the match, Candice LeRae was nursing her right arm and did not use it at all, even for raising her arm to celebrate the victory. New NXT North American Champion Johnny Gargano posted a backstage photo of his all-new ‘gang’ on Twitter, and one can see LeRae wearing a sling.

We hope there’s no serious injury to the ‘Poison Pixie.’ Her heelwork has given her a ton of momentum and we don’t want an injury to stop it.

The women took it to the next level


Calling this match a banger is an understatement. All eight women’s determination showed through the performance they delivered. High risks, high rewards are not just a phrase used by commentators, but are a fact of life that paid off for Team Candice.
