NXT in recent weeks saw the untimely injury of a couple of their talented superstars which includes Rachael Evers. Evers definitely wants to make her in-ring return, but it seems that she will require surgery.
Evers suffered an injury to her knee at a Florida house show on Friday. According to earlier reports, it was believed that she “blew out her knee,” but it seems that the extent of the injury is far worse than that. Rachael took to Twitter to update fans on her status and revealed that she will undergo surgery.
Professional wrestling is the love of my life. My heart is at home when I’m in that ring sharing moments with you all.
On Saturday night, my heart broke a little bit. At out NXT show in Florida, I tore my ACL. Those three letters have caused me to feel so much pain, disappointment and fear.
I never thought that I would have to face this challenge and be ripped away from what makes my heart thrive — what I’m born to do.
But here I am…
That same passion that fueled me in the ring, will now push me to return to it. The unsettling, sorrowful, aching feelings will pass. I have incredible people in my corner; people who love me and believe in me and that means so much.
I have surgery on Tuesday, and Wednesday I begin my journey back to my home — the ring.
As a wise woman once said, ‘I am a goddess, a glorious female warrior.’ So now its time to prove it.
We hope that Rachael makes a speedy recovery and is able to return to the ring sooner rather than later. We will provide updates regarding her injury status as we get to know more.
