Warning SPOILERS AHEAD….
The Mae Young Classic has already been taped and the finals of the event were to be held at WWE‘s all women pay-per-view Evolution. Toni Storm was slated to be in those finals against Io Sharai. It is yet to be seen if the injury will impact her appearing at Evolution.
Hopefully, she is just being extra pre-cautious with an event as big as Evolution coming up and the injury is not serious enough to prevent her from performing. The timing of this injury is terrible news for Storm and WWE if it is serious enough to prevent her from appearing.
