WWE reportedly being “extra cautious” with wrestler due to upcoming event in 2023

As seen during the December 6th 2022 edition of WWE NXT, Veer and Sanga declined a match against the Creed brothers for the Deadline PLE. During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com noted that WWE is being cautious with Veer due to WWE’s upcoming event in India…

“Veer is injured, a very minor injury, but they’re still not letting him wrestle. They’re trying to protect him because Veer and Sanga have to be healthy for that India show that’s built all around them in mid-January and a lot of money is involved. So, they can’t risk him being hurt to miss that show, so they pulled him from this show. His injury – he absolutely 100% could wrestle, but they are being extra cautious. Anybody else in this world would wrestle with this kind of injury. It’s like a broken finger or something, which people do work through all the time.” (quote courtesy of RingsideNews.com)

WWE will be holding a live event in Hyderabad, India on January 18th 2023 at the Gachibowli Indoor Stadium.
