While the match was won by Candice’s team, it wasn’t all good news for her, as she was severely injured during the fight.
The injury is believed to have been caused by Shotzi Blackheart when she hit Candice with a dropkick and she was smashed up against a ladder.

It is believed that the injury is bad and could be a fracture in her arm which would sideline her for a considerable amount of time.
Speaking on the media call, which can be found on the Wrestling Inc. Daily, Triple H highlighted his concerns regarding a broken arm for Candice LeRae.
“Candice is getting checked out now. Getting checked out and getting an x-ray so I don’t have status update yet on that, but you are correct. It looks like possibly a broken arm. We’re not sure yet, but we’ll see where that goes.”
However, it’s best to await confirmation on the results instead of getting caught up in speculations.
LeRae was also pictured alongside her husband, Johnny Gargano, celebrating their wins on Sunday, and her arm was in a sling.
Triple H also confirmed that apart from Candice LeRae, other NXT Superstars only suffered ‘bumps and bruises’ which is not bad, considering the amount of risk and damage usually involved in events like this.
