The injury took place when The Authors of Pain powerbombed one of the opponents (Johnny Vandal) onto the other, who was confirmed to be WrestlePro (NJ) talent Anthony Bowens.
Bowens posted the following on his Twitter account, noting his injuries will force him to miss in-ring time:
Not the way I saw my #WWE #NXT debut ending but due to the injuries sustained last night I have to unfortunately pull off all Dec shows.— Anthony Bowens (@Bowens_Official) 1 dicembre 2016
Bowens suffered a concussion due to the spot, and it was clearly evident that there was a head injury upon examination by WWE doctors. Bowens will reportedly remain in Florida for a short time while WWE doctors can monitor his progress.
