Tegan Nox has revealed that she incredibly wrestled for nearly two years with no ACL in her left knee.
The star endured something of a stop-start beginning to her WWE career as her early appearances were blighted by injury. Nox was initially meant to take part in the 2017 Mae Young Classic but was forced to withdraw due to injury. Her next foray into WWE came in the 2018 edition of the tournament, where after making it through two rounds, again had to pull out due to a serious knee injury.
The now SmackDown Superstar finally arrived in NXT in the summer of 2019 feuding with Kay Lee Rae. However, the Welsh star was struck down by a knee injury for a third time in September 2020.
‘The Girl with the Shiniest Wizard’ arrived back on the black and gold brand at the Great American Bash where she attacked Candice LeRae. It was shortly after this appearance that Nox debuted on SmackDown alongside Shotzi Blackheart on July 9th.
Posting on social media to celebrate the anniversary of her most recent return from injury, Nox revealed that she had been wrestling for nearly two years with no ACL in her left knee. This included a period in early 2020 where she faced Dakota Kai in a Street Fight and a Cage Match.
