More details have now come to light regarding a major injury suffered by a WWE NXT star recently that will keep them out of action for some time.
As was announced yesterday, Tegan Nox suffered a torn ACL again. Speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer explained how the injury was suffered.
“No not at all especially since this wasn’t in a match or even in practice. It happened in rehab, essentially. It’s like it just popped.
“It wasn’t in training or anything. They didn’t think anything was wrong, but something went wrong and they checked and it was a torn ACL. I’m going to guess it didn’t heal properly, I don’t know that, I’m not a doctor. They found something wrong when they did the MRI.”
Nox has a history of bad leg injuries. In the 2017 Mae Young Classic she tore an ACL, and then in the 2018 Mae Young Classic she tore an ACL, MCL, LCL, meniscus as well as a patella dislocation.
It is expected Nox will be out for six-nine months. The storyline explanation for her injury was a backstage attack by Candice LeRae.
We wish Tegan Nox a safe recovery, and we’ll keep you updated as more news comes to light.
