Report: NXT Star Hospitalized During This Week's Episode

This week's NXT saw Xia Li and Boa pick up a victory over Mercedes Martinez and Jake Atlas when Li nailed Martinez with a spinning back kick, prompting the referee to end the match via stoppage. There was immediate speculation that Martinez was knocked out by the kick, and Fightful's Sean Ross Sapp is now reporting Martinez was evaluated backstage and taken to a local hospital for further evaluation.

Martinez has yet to comment on the situation, though Atlas and Li have posted a couple of tweets regarding the match. Stay tuned for any further updates on Martinez's status.
