Drew McIntyre may have suffered torn bicep at NXT TakeOver


Additional notes added by Joseph Currier

Drew McIntyre may have suffered a torn bicep near the finish of his match with Andrade "Cien" Almas tonight at NXT TakeOver: War Games.

At the end of the match, McIntyre held onto the top rope with his left arm while being given a DDT off the top. McIntyre grabbed his bicep after and was receiving medical attention following the match.

That DDT was the finish to the match, which saw Almas win the NXT Championship from McIntyre.

In his post-show interview on Facebook Live, Triple H said that McIntyre might have torn his bicep, would be undergoing an MRI on Sunday to determine the extent of the injury, and could have surgery this week depending on the results of the MRI.

McIntyre also spoke about the injury in a promo after the show, saying it probably wasn't good but he wouldn't know anything official until talking to the doctor.
