Io Shirai pops Cora Jade’s shoulder back in during NXT War Games match (Video)

Sometimes, bad things can happen in a scripted sport that involves professional wrestling.

During the women’s War Games cage match at NXT War Games, Cora Jade took a nasty fall to the ground and appeared to injure her shoulder.

With the NXT/WWE doctors looking in from the outside, they didn’t get in, so Io Shirai did the next best thing and popped her shoulder back in for her.

Whether this was a scripted spot or this was 100% legit; we may never know. Either way, it looked bad ass on television and in the arena.

Jade finished the match and helped her team win the match.
