NXT star and daughter of wrestling legend Paul Ellering, Rachael Evers, has confirmed that she suffered a torn ACL during a match at an NXT Live event earlier this week.
She posted the following message on Twitter confirming the bad news:
Professional wrestling is the love of my life. My heart is at home when I’m in that ring sharing moments with you all.
On Saturday night, my heart broke a little bit. At our NXT show in Florida, I tore my ACL. Those three letters have caused me to feel so much pain, disappointment and fear.
I never thought that I would have to face this challenge and be ripped away from what makes my heart thrive-what I’m born to do.
But here I am.
That same passion that fueled me in the ring, will now push me to return to it. The unsettling, sorrowful, aching feelings will pass. I have incredible people in my corner; people who love me and believe in me and that means so much.
I have surgery on Tuesday and Wednesday. I begin my journey back to my home-the ring.
As a wise woman once said, “I am a goddess, a glorious female warrior.” So now its time to prove it.
