WWE NXT's Cameron Grimes out of action for 4-6 weeks


Cameron Grimes is facing some time out of action.

On this Wednesday night's episode of NXT, it was said that Grimes will be out of action for 4-6 weeks. Dave Meltzer has confirmed that timetable is legitimate.

The storyline explanation for Grimes' injury was the angle where his leg was attacked by Timothy Thatcher on last week's NXT.

Grimes faced Tommaso Ciampa on last week's NXT episode. After being defeated by Ciampa at TakeOver: WarGames, Thatcher watched the match from a chair he set up at ringside. Ciampa hit the Willow's Bell DDT on Grimes to get the win. Thatcher and Ciampa had a staredown and exchanged words after the match. Grimes then yelled at Thatcher for coming out to ringside for the match. Thatcher went to head to the back, but Grimes turned him around. Thatcher then grabbed Grimes' leg and twisted his ankle.

PWinsider reported today that Grimes underwent surgery last week: "While has not confirmed the nature of the issue, we can confirm that Grimes underwent a surgery last week, and is out of action until he is cleared to return."

Grimes lost to Dexter Lumis in a strap match at NXT TakeOver: WarGames earlier this month.
