That’s awful. There are all kinds of injuries in the wrestling world and some of them are a lot more serious than others. You never know when you are going to see a wrestler put on the shelf for a very long time and occasionally the injuries come out of nowhere. That was the situation again this week as a WWE star has been put on the shelf and will not be back for a good while.

This week’s edition of NXT featured a backstage segment when Nikkita Lyons was found in the parking lot, clutching her knee. There was no word on who attacked her, but Lyons was later taken to a local medical facility. Lyons has since made a post to her Instagram, announcing that she has torn both her ACL and meniscus. There is no word on how long she will be out of action, but it will likely be several months.

Lyons should be great when she gets back. Check out how she did before the injury:

Opinion: Egads that’s not good to hear, as Lyons will likely be out until the end of the year at the earliest. She was starting to come into her own a bit more and seemed like a possible candidate for a breakout star in the women’s division. Hopefully she is back sooner than later, as you never want to see someone get hurt, especially with something as serious as this.

What do you think of Lyons? What should she do when she gets back? Let us know in the comments below.
