On the latest episode of NXT 2.0, Solo Sikoa was evaluated by medical staff, who revealed how long the star will have to be out of action due to injury.
Last week’s episode of NXT 2.0 saw Solo Sikoa and Von Wagner go to war in a brutal Falls Count Anywhere match. The bout was made following a backstage altercation between the two on the July 15th episode of SmackDown, a surprise main roster appearance from both men that took place at the Amway Center in Orlando, FL.
Not only did the two brawl all over the arena, the action also spilled outside of the Performance Center and involved a sports car and a brief stint inside a dumpster.
Despite earning a hard-fought victory over Von Wagner, Solo Sikoa didn’t escape the brawl without suffering after-effects of the match. On the August 9th episode of NXT 2.0, Sikoa was examined by a medical professional backstage. It was announced that the son of WWE Hall of Famer Rikishi would not require surgery, but would be out of action for 4-6 weeks due to a sprained PCL.
