That’s one of the bad ones. There are all kinds of injuries in the wrestling world but there are some that are absolutely horrible to hear about. You know them when they come up and the question becomes how long it is going to be before a wrestler can make it back to the ring. That is the case again, as an NXT star’s injury seems to be one of the worse you can have.
NXT’s Zoey Stark has announced that she has suffered a torn ACL and has already undergone surgery to repair the damage. The injury took place during the ladder match at Halloween Havoc, though the storyline explanation was an attack by Toxic Attraction the following week on NXT. There is no word on how long Stark will be out of action as she undergoes rehabilitation.
Sadly, I tore my ACL/Meniscus due to Toxic's attack. Here's the bad news for the "champs". Surgery went great and I'm already rehabbing. I'll be back BETTER & STRONGER with three targets in mind! Until then @shirai_io @KacyCatanzaro @wwekayden kick their ass tonight!@WWENXT

Stark is quite the star when she is healthy. Check out what she has done in NXT:
Opinion: This is about as bad as it can get for a knee injury as Stark is going to be out for a good while. It helps that she has already had the surgery and can start getting things back together, but there is a long road in front of her. Stark certainly stood out during her limited time in NXT to date and it would be nice to see back in the ring a lot sooner rather than later.
What do you think of Stark? What should she do when she gets back? Let us know in the comments below.
