As previously reported, WWE announced during last week’s NXT Injury Report that Kacy Catanzaro suffered a leg injury during her match with Xia Li, where Xia Li stopped on Catanzaro’s leg against the steel steps. Dave Meltzer commented on Catanzaro’s status on today’s Wrestling Observer Radio.

Based on Meltzer’s coverage, the leg injury was done as an apparent angle for Catanzaro. Meltzer stated on Catanzaro, “It’s not like she’s 100%, but she’s fine, OK.” Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez noted that Catanzaro was wearing some type of knee brace for the match with Xia Li, and she still worked her athletic, acrobatic style. Meltzer took exception to WWE announcing that Catanzaro has a leg injury when that would preclude her having to be out for months, while it appears she won’t need a layoff that long.

The WWE version of the NXT injury report stated that Kacy Catanzaro is not medically cleared, and she’s awaiting more information on the extent of her injury.
