Tegan Nox suffered a shocking injury during her WWE Mae Young Classic Quarter-Finals match with Rhea Ripley on Thursday.

The match that was being taped at Full Sail University saw the Welsh star perform a dive outside the ring and end up in an awkward landing. The ‘X’ symbol went up and the match was instantly stopped and Ripley was awarded the victory.

Nox was taken to a local medical facility and the crowd was later informed that she had suffered a broken leg.

Things couldn’t be worse as this was Nox’s second shot at the Mae Young Classic after she was forced to miss last year’s tournament due to a torn ACL.

In a recent interview with ESPN , WWE Executive Vice President, Talent, Live Events & Creative Paul “Triple H” Levesque expressed his opinion on the matter and referred to Nox’s current situation as “heartbreaking” in the process.

“Tegan, to me is this story of, you know, last year we really wanted her to be in the tournament and she had the ACL injury that prevented her from being in it,” Triple H said. “It took her all year [to recover] and she just got rolling and really feeling good and just gets cleared, I mean, 100 percent banging around on it and it’s great.

“To come here tonight and be in a position to where, let me just say, it couldn’t have been any more heartbreaking for her. Emotionally, just couldn’t have been any more heartbreaking. I don’t know, at this point, what happened. She landed funky on a dive and hurt herself.”

“The doctor looked at it, and it was so painful at the point that he couldn’t manipulate the disk to see if it was an ACL,” Tripe H added, “So we have her headed over to the hospital now and check what it is.”
