A few details have emerged regarding the injury that Toni Storm suffered at NXT United Kingdom's television tapings in Birmingham, England over the weekend.

Dave Meltzer notes that it was a spine injury that Storm suffered. She hasn't been evaluated yet, but the injury is not believed to be too serious at this point.

The referee put up the "X" sign to signal that Storm was hurt on Sunday after she lost to Rhea Ripley in the finals of the two-night, eight-woman tournament to crown the first NXT UK Women's Champion. Storm was able to walk to the back unassisted after the match.

PROGRESS and wXw announced yesterday that Storm is off their shows this coming weekend due to the injury. Storm had held the wXw Women's Championship, but the promotion announced that the title would be vacated since it would have gone over four months without being defended.

Storm is scheduled to face Io Shirai in the finals of the Mae Young Classic at WWE's Evolution pay-per-view on October 28.
