Former WWE Women’s Champion Layla announced this evening on her Twitter account that she tore both the ACL and MCL in her knee and will undergo surgery tomorrow.
“Well my knee injury is worse than I thought… I tore both my ACL and MCL,” she wrote. “Having surgery tomorrow.”
“I’m ready to heal and be stronger than ever!!!!”
She continued, “Not gonna blame anyone yet for making it worse than after Michelle McCool and my match.
“Just need the time to heal. Thank you all for support always.”
Recovery time for her injury is expected to be approximately six months.
Layla announced on the May 13 episode of SmackDown that during her match with Michelle McCool at Extreme Rules, she sustained a serious knee injury. Following Michael Cole’s interruption, Kharma emerged. Cole proceeded to trip Layla, allowing the monstrous woman to drive her into the mat.
