austin aries eye injury update wrestling wrestler nxt

Doctors have determined that the eye injury Austin Aries suffered last week was worse than they initially thought, and now he’s set to go under the knife to fix the problem.

Our sources tell us that even though it didn’t seem to be serious the following day, doctors took a look at the CT scan a few days later and realized surgery would be necessary.

PWInsider first reported yesterday that Aries suffered a large orbital fracture and will be out of action until early 2017. As we previously reported, AA was hit with a superkick gone wrong by Shinsuke Nakamura at an NXT live event and the match had to be stopped early.

We’re told his surgery is scheduled for Thursday, but he’s currently feeling much better.
