This week’s NXT saw a lot of action and heart-touching segments. Fans saw Wes Lee grieve over his injury and how he won’t be able to compete for the North American Championship at NXT Deadline. Tears were rolling down his cheeks as he confessed his pain in front of all the fans.

Lee expressed his heartfelt disappointment at his inability to compete because of the injury. He further disregarded any sympathy, as it wouldn’t help him heal any faster.

That support won't help right now. It would not bring back feeling to my leg. It won't eliminate the excruciating pain that I am in just now standing in the ring and talking to you all right now. It's gonna take surgery and time. And I'm unsure when you'll see me again. I will further return to submit my legacy as one of the best to ever do it.

Fans were further informed that his injury wasn’t minor. It would need surgery to heal, which could rule him out for months. While fans were being sympathetic, the former North American Champion made sure that not another tear rolled down. He made a declaration to return just like he earlier rose from the ashes.

Lee intends to submit his legacy as one of the greatest to ever step into WWE. Fans acknowledge his motivation as they’ve seen his resolve and progress after MSK disbanded. It was on 22nd October 2022, that Lee captured the North American Championship against the likes of Carmelo Hayes, Von Wagner, Oro Mensah, and Nathan Fraser.
