Candice LeRae returned to WWE after Triple H took charge of the company’s creative direction, but her comeback was followed by a short hiatus. It has been revealed that her disappearance was due to a “freak accident” and was the reason for her brief absence.
While speaking to The Sam Laprade Show, Candice LeRae was asked about injuries in pro wrestling, and she revealed that she was recently injured in a “freak accident.”
“I just had a freak accident happen not that long ago. We’re always taking a risk when we step into the ring, no matter what we do. It is very taxing on our bodies. I’m a bit more…having a son now, it’s a bit more scary for me because when I do get hurt, it affects him now.”
“Before, I was like, ‘I don’t care, it’s myself. If it happens, it happens, that’s the risk we’re taking. Now, it does affect him. It’s a very real thing, but WWE takes such phenomenal care of us. The medical staff that we have, they do so much for us, and we do everything we can to prevent everything. Of course, in the back of my head, I’m thinking, ‘I don’t want to get hurt because I want to be a present mother.’ I do feel, not as worried as you’d probably think I would be. I feel people have my back, and I’ve been training for this for 20 years.”
