Again, fair warning, SPOILERS for this year’s Mae Young Classic will be included below.
Tegan Nox was injured during her quarterfinal match against Rhea Ripley at the Mae Young Classic taping (full spoilers here) last night at Full Sail. She hurt her leg on a dive to the outside, and while there is still no update on exactly what the injury is — Triple H mentioned a leg break — she has released a statement:

This isn’t how I planned to finish the Mae Young Classic in any shape or form but the last 2 days have been the best experience of my life, despite the obvious! My match with Rhea was something I’ve wanted for a while because, damn that girl is talented (even if she is very moody). Freak accidents happen, it’s part of the job but to hear that she had a killer match with one of the best wrestlers in the world, Io Shirai made my heart swell with happiness.
This is more mentally draining than it is physically but you can guarantee that this isn’t going to keep me down! I have the best friends and support system a girl could ever ask for!
I worked so hard for over a year to be able to compete in this year’s MYC, so you know for a fact, I’m fighting back stronger than ever!
Every message I’ve received tonight on twitter, Facebook, Instagram, text etc has been absolutely overwhelming! The fact that my hospital room was full of people really warms my heart and honestly meant the absolute world to me! I said it before and I’ll say it again, everything happens for a reason, no matter what the extent of the injury is, I’ll be back and I’ll be Shinier than ever.
She’s in remarkably good spirits for having suffered such a heartbreaking injury. The good news is WWE seems to think highly of her, so she’ll have a spot to get back to when she’s healthy.
There’s also this good news:
I guess one positive that came from the incident is that I can have an even bigger piece of cake tonight seriously though guys, every message has made my heart so happy! https://t.co/ooRDHIM23Y— Tegan Nox (@TeganNoxWWE_) August 10, 2018
Always a silver lining.
