-NXT wrestler Ember Moon is sidelined by a grade one shoulder sprain. WWE.com notes that she has officially been pulled from the NXT Takeover: Chicago card. She is expected to miss four to five weeks.
Powell’s POV: Strowman has been doing brawls at the live events with Roman Reigns. He also appears on tonight’s Raw, which was taped earlier today, but he is apparently being written out temporarily due to the surgery. Meanwhile, WWE has confirmed that the Takeover women’s title match will feature Asuka defending against Ruby Riot and Nikki Cross in a Triple Threat.
