According to by way of, Bobby Fish underwent surgery today to repair minor tears in both his ACL and MCL. This injury will put Fish out of action for about six months. At the moment, Fish is scheduled to defend the NXT Tag Team Titles at “Takeover: New Orleans”. There is no word on what will happen to the title match.

Here’s one of Fish’s best performances in NXT.

Opinion: Well dang. I’m not sure how they’re going to handle this at “Takeover”, unless there’s a new partner to help Kyle O’Reilly. Either that or they’ll just have O’Reilly fight by himself for the most part with Fish being taken out early. It could be interesting, but you can almost guarantee new champions.

Fish can talk too.
