Impact Wrestling’s Taya Valkyrie took to social media to share the story of a scary home accident that left her with second-degree burns on her face and hands.
According to Valkyrie, she had been lighting a candle that had been sent to her in an “influencer package”. when the candle ended up burning “like a torch.”
“Charred our window and wall and I just suffered 2nd-degree burns on both hands and my face trying to put it out,” she wrote.
Valkyrie is married to WWE Superstar John Morrision and he also Tweeted about the incident.
“Got to wonder what they put in their products if they are making candles that burn like propane torches,” he said.
The candle was from Lily’s Sweets, and Morrison said that he had collected and thrown away all other Lily’s Sweets products in the house. According to Valkyrie, she loved their chocolates which was why they had the products in the house.
He also warned other people to “be careful” about the products.
Valkyrie Tweeted an update on the burns, revealing in a video that her hands are still covered with blisters. No word if this will affect her work with Impact.
