Aries took a kick from NXT Champion Shinsuke Nakamura, resulting in the dreaded "X" from the referee. The match was then stopped but Aries did leave on his own, sporting a black eye. There was talk that Aries may have suffered a broken jaw but it looks like he suffered a bad cut to the eye at the very least.
We will keep you updated on his status but here are some photos and videos:

I don't know what the end result is, but Austin Aries got caught by Shinsuke. Possible eye/jaw injury or concussion. #NXTfresno pic.twitter.com/T0RpMzsfb7— Christian Lukens (@ChristianLukens) October 27, 2016
