WWE NXT's Zoey Stark set to undergo knee surgery


Former NXT Women's Tag Team Champion Zoey Stark is set to undergo knee surgery.

Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Stark will be undergoing knee surgery shortly. The type of knee injury that Stark suffered or how long she'll be out of action weren't noted.

Stark suffered the knee injury during the triple threat Scareway to Hell ladder match at NXT Halloween Havoc on October 26. Toxic Attraction's Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne defeated Io Shirai & Stark and Indi Hartwell & Persia Pirotta in that match to win the NXT Women's Tag Team titles.

On this week's NXT, there was an angle where Stark was attacked backstage by Dolin and Jayne. Post Wrestling's John Pollock reported on Wednesday that the angle was due to Stark dealing with a legitimate injury.

Shirai, Kayden Carter & Kacy Catanzaro will face Toxic Attraction (NXT Women's Champion Mandy Rose, Dolin & Jayne) in a six-woman tag match on NXT next Tuesday. Carter and Catanzaro saved Shirai from a beatdown by Toxic Attraction on NXT this week.

Stark made her WWE debut in NXT's women's Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic this January. She wrestled using the name Lacey Ryan prior to signing with WWE.
