In an interview with TVInsider.com, Kyle O’Reilly talked about an angle from February with him being checked on by medical staff as WWE NXT went off the air. A fan published photos of the angle which led to speculation that O’Reilly had suffered a seizure…
After hitting the stairs he was knocked out and the doctor actually had to wake him up.

Here is what O’Reilly said about the angle…
“My sister [was really worried]. That was the first thing she saw was this rumor on Twitter before I’d even had the chance to give her a call and let her know I was okay. She called me in hysterics freaking out. That made me sad because here is someone who is family who sees something on Twitter and was concerned.”
“I knew [social media’s speculation] came from a caring and genuine place. They were concerned. I can’t fault anyone for that.”
Kyle O’Reilly spent much of his WWE career in a successful tag team and dominant faction The Undisputed Era. Then late last year the mat technician changed gears, flying solo in the rings of NXT. The 34-year-old has since broken out individually through a personal rivalry and series of matches against former Undisputed Era stable mate Adam Cole.
