NXT Star Provides Good News Regarding Injury

NXT Star Provides Good News Regarding Injury

A WWE NXT star has provided some good news regarding an injury sustained at TakeOver: WarGames that isn’t as serious as first believed.

There were concerns that Candice LeRae had suffered a broken arm, and WWE even announced that she had on TV. However, she actually hasn’t.

Speaking with PWInsider, she said:

“I feel great. All things considered, I think whatever little tiny bits of me that are still a bit sore, I’ll take it, because my arm – no break – it was a Christmas miracle. It was hard to believe, I was like this is definitely broken, we went to the ER, got x-rays…even our medical team looked at it and I want to say within 24 hours I was able to pretty much use my arm and my fingers all again – obviously tender, but… (laughs).

“It was a deep tissue…all the cartilage and stuff just got mushed, and I mean, for days after I went up to people like, ‘It’s not broken’ and medical staff were like that’s so crazy because everybody was convinced that it was broken. I’m trying not to cry when they’re telling me it’s broken because I’m like, ‘I want kids, I don’t have time to take any time off right now, we gotta keep this show going,’ and there was still a part of me going, ‘Maybe it’s not broken,’ because my body has endured a lot of things in my almost 18 years of doing this, maybe it’s not broken, but it wasn’t (laughs).”

LeRae has remained on TV since WarGames but obviously hasn’t had a match.

She’ll be on tonight too for the ‘A Very Gargano Christmas’ segment along with fellow members of The Way: Indi Hartwell, Austin Theory and NXT North American Champion, her husband, Johnny Gargano.
