WWE star Adam Cole suffers broken ribs and Velveteen Dream fractured wrist with duo facing lengthy period out of NXT

WWE have announced that NXT stars Adam Cole and Velveteen Dreamare set for a lengthy spell out injured.

Both wrestlers were hurt during the NXT TakeOver 31 show.

Cole suffered broken ribs after being 'attacked' by newcomer Ridge Holland.

The 31-year-old Pennsylvania fighter had to have medics called to help him following the unsavoury incident.

Velveteen Dream fractured his wrist in his match against Kushida.

But he is cleared to wrestle – though that might see him supporting a cast.

A statement published by WWE reads: "Cole suffered broken ribs and contusions due to an apparent attack suffered at the hands of powerful newcomer Ridge Holland.

"Holland dropped Cole's limp body at ringside following the conclusion of the NXT Championship main event between Finn Balor and Kyle O'Reilly, prompting his fellow Undisputed ERA members to call for immediate medical attention.

"Velveteen Dream, meanwhile, suffered a fractured wrist after facing Kushida at TakeOver 31.

"Kushida forced Dream to submit to the Hoverboard Lock and then continued the onslaught after the bell, armbarring Dream until officials interjected.

"Despite the injury, Dream is medically cleared as tolerated.

"These injuries are on top of the previously reported injuries incurred by Balor and O'Reilly during their intense and acclaimed title bout."

WWE are set to announce an update on both men's conditions at the next NXT show.
