Xia Li appears to be okay following NXT Women's title match


Xia Li appears to be okay following her NXT Women's title match on this week's NXT.

Fightful Select reported that she "appeared okay" backstage following the bout. Li appeared to be injured towards the end of the match, when Raquel Gonzalez landed on her following a springboard senton splash. The match was then stopped as WWE medical personnel tended to her. After a couple of minutes, the match resumed. Gonzalez quickly went to the finish and pinned Li to retain the title.

Li had challenged for the title the previous week after Dakota Kai defeated Ember Moon in a singles match. Li is part of the Tian Sha stable with Boa and Mei Ying, who were not at ringside for tonight's match.

The end of tonight's NXT had Samoa Joe come out immediately after the NXT Women's title match and called out Karrion Kross, who attacked him on last week's show. Kross revealed backstage that he had laid out GM William Regal, saying he was the one in charge. Joe exited the ring but Kross was gone by the time Joe reached Regal.
