Tegan Nox was forced to miss last year’s Mae Young Classic because she suffered an ACL injury before tapings began but this year she was able to make it all the way to the quarter-finals, before suffering a shock injury in her match against Rhea Ripley.
The Welsh star performed a dive to the outside at the tapings for the event last night in Full Sail, before she landed awkwardly, the dreaded ‘X’ symbol went up and the match was then stopped and awarded to Ripley.

Nox was taken to a local medical facility and Triple H later updated the crowd to state that Knox had suffered a broken leg.
Despite this, WWE.com later revealed that the current condition of the stars leg is unknown and more tests are required, which means it could be more or less severe than this, but it won’t be known until further tests are done.
Nox is just 23 years old and performs on NXT live events alongside Dakota Kai as one half of Team Kick, she signed with WWE back in April 2017 ahead of the first-ever Mae Young Classic tournament but was forced to drop out when she suffered an ACL injury.
In the year that followed, Nox worked hard in the gym to make her comeback and was even given a new name ahead of this year’s tournament.
The star, who was formerly known as Nixon Newell, made her return to the ring back in April and saw this tournament as her big comeback, before this shock injury.
It is unknown how long the star will be out of action for, but she updated the WWE Universe on Twitter earlier today from her hospital room.
