That’s never good to hear. One of the last things that you ever want to hear about in wrestling is an injury. Someone can be on a roll and then have something to go wrong that wipes them out for a short or long amount of time. Wrestlers can be taken out in the blink of an eye and unfortunately that seems to be the case again. Now we know some more about just how bad things are.
It was announced this week on NXT that Nikkita Lyons was injured, forcing her out of the Women’s Breakout Tournament. Lyons has since posted a video to Instagram, announcing that she has suffered a partial tear of her MCL, as well as an MCL sprain. There is no word on how long Lyons is expected to be out of action. Tiffany Stratton took her place in the tournament and advanced to the finals against Roxanne Perez.
This doesn’t sound good. Check out Lyons’ announcement:
Opinion: I’m not sure what this is going to mean for Lyons’ future but hopefully she isn’t out of action for all that long. Lyons is someone who has a natural charisma and felt like a star from the second that she debuted. The NXT women’s division is going to need to get her back as soon as possible, as she really is that talented at what she does and her absence is going to hurt things a good bit.
What do you think of Lyons? What should she do when she gets back? Let us know in the comments below.
