That’s a nasty one. There are all kinds of injuries in the wrestling world and you never want to see any of them happen to someone at any time. They can keep someone out of action for any span of time and unfortunately there is no way to guarantee that they don’t happen. Now another one has happened to a prominent star, but thankfully it might sound worse than it really is.

This week on NXT, Ilja Dragunov made a surprise return after missing several weeks of action. Dragunov chased off JD McDonagh, who put him on the shelf in the first place. McDonagh has since posted a photo of his face to Twitter, revealing that he suffered a detached retina in his right eye, which he blames on Dragunov. As a result, he will be missing live events and estimates a 10-14 day recovery time, though he is waiting on a treatment plan.

.@WWENXT fans attending Live Events in Tampa/Citrus Springs this weekend – Unfortunately, after a sneak attack on Tuesday, I've got a detached retina in my right eye.

Waiting on a treatment plan, but I estimate a 10-14 day recovery time.

10-14 days, @UNBESIEGBAR_ZAR. Count em.

McDonagh is quite the star in NXT. Check out some of his time there:

Opinion: That is a rough sounding injury but if McDonagh is right, two weeks out of the ring is a pretty decent result. Hopefully that is all of the time that he misses as you don’t want anyone to be out of action whatsoever. McDonagh is still a player in NXT and it is a shame that he is going to have to miss some time, as he is a bit difficult to replace on their roster.

What do you think of McDonagh? What is next for him when he returns? Let us know in the comments below.
