It was all the way back in January that NXT was running an injury angle for Nikkita Lyons to cover for a legitimate injury she suffered to her knee. She announced she suffered a torn ACL and that kept her out of action for the entirety of the year.
Just last week, however, she was shown in the crowd at the Performance Center and commentary was letting us know she would be back “soon.”
Well, soon appears to be here already:
Back when Lyons was written off, she was just one of many who suffered at the hands of a mystery attacker. While she was gone, that mystery attacker was revealed to be Blair Davenport. That would indeed be the same Blair Davenport who is in the Iron Survivor Challenge match at Deadline this coming Saturday night in Bridgeport. Whether Blair wins that match or not, she’s got a feud lined up.
