JD McDonagh is off this weekend’s NXT live events after the performer stated he was injured.

McDonagh announced on social media that he has a detached retina in his right eye and won’t be able to appear at the shows in Tampa and Citrus Springs, Florida this weekend.

He expects to be back in “10-14 days” and is awaiting a treatment plan to address the injury while including a photo of his eye.

McDonagh wrestled Tyler Bate on this past Tuesday’s episode and was attacked by the returning Ilja Dragunov afterward.

.@WWENXT fans attending Live Events in Tampa/Citrus Springs this weekend – Unfortunately, after a sneak attack on Tuesday, I've got a detached retina in my right eye.

Waiting on a treatment plan, but I estimate a 10-14 day recovery time.

10-14 days, @UNBESIEGBAR_ZAR. Count em. pic.twitter.com/P4GfpbnkUG
