That never sounds good. Injuries are the kind of thing that can affect everyone in wrestling and that makes them one of the more dangerous things about the sport. Since there is no way to wrestle completely safely, there is always the possibility that any move could change a wrestler’s career forever. A recent one seems to be rather bad and might need some more work.
There is so much talent in NXT at the moment that the company barely has room for everyone. Between the main television roster and the live event circuit down in Florida, there is only so much time to spend to get everyone into a ring in front of an audience. Unfortunately there is one name who has not been able to get in the ring at all lately and that may be continuing for the time being.
NXT wrestler Karen Q has announced that she will be undergoing another surgery on Wednesday to help repair her broken leg. The injury took place at a live event on July 27 in Atlanta, Georgia when she teamed with Bianca Belair against Rhea Ripley and Reina Gonzalez. Karen Q has not wrestled on NXT yet and it is unknown when she will be able to return to the ring.
Today will be 27 weeks post surgery. Tomorrow, I’ll be going under the knife again. Some may see this as a setback, but I see it as an opportunity to heal properly, mentally and physically, so that I will be unstoppable in the ring.

She has wrestled on WWE TV before though. Check out her appearance in the Mae Young Classic:
Opinion: That doesn’t sound good but she does sound like she is taking it in stride. It’s horrible to see anyone get hurt and this is the kind of injury that can affect you for a very long time. While it is a broken bone instead of a ligament or muscle, anything that keeps you on the shelf for over seven months is going to be a horrible situation. Hopefully she can make it back to the ring at some point, because no one should have that kind of injury take them out when they are just getting their big break.
