Tegan Nox, a rising WWE star, provided an update on her injury status. After her Mae Young Classic was cut short due to a knee injury, Nox explained exactly what went wrong and it does not sound pretty.
Nox was taping the Mae Young Classic match against Rhea Ripley when her leg failed her.
The WWE Diva suffered a torn MCL, LCL, ACL and meniscus, along with a fracture of her left leg. You can watch the moment the injury happened below.
Nox also commented on the injury.
You can read her full statement below.
This isn’t how I planned to finish the Mae Young Classic in any shape or form but the last 2 days have been the best experience of my life, despite the obvious! My match with Rhea was something I’ve wanted for a while because, damn that girl is talented (even if she is very moody). Freak accidents happen, it’s part of the job but to hear that she had a killer match with one of the best wrestlers in the world, Io Shirai made my heart swell with happiness.
This is more mentally draining than it is physically but you can guarantee that this isn’t going to keep me down! I have the best friends and support system a girl could ever ask for!
I worked so hard for over a year to be able to compete in this year’s MYC, so you know for a fact, I’m fighting back stronger than ever!
Every message I’ve received tonight on twitter, Facebook, Instagram, text etc has been absolutely overwhelming! The fact that my hospital room was full of people really warms my heart and honestly meant the absolute world to me! I said it before and I’ll say it again, everything happens for a reason, no matter what the extent of the injury is, I’ll be back and I’ll be Shinier than ever.
Our best wishes go out to Nox as she recovers from the injury.
