Mae Young Classic participant suffers leg injury during match


Tegan Nox seriously injured her left leg during tonight’s Mae Young Classic tapings.

She was in the early stages of a match against Rhea Ripley when she went for a dive. Upon impact, her left leg gave out. The match was stopped shortly thereafter and awarded to Ripley as medical officials came to Nox's aid. The crowd was said to be silent as Nox was visibly in pain and crying.

Later during the tapings, Triple H came out and indicated that she suffered a broken leg.

Nox, who competed on the indie scene as Nixon Newell, had just signed a developmental deal with WWE when she tore her right ACL before the Mae Young Classic tapings last year, which she was scheduled to be a part of. She returned to the ring in April of this year and had been working NXT house shows before being announced as a competitor for this year’s tapings.
