Former WWE Superstar Tegan Nox has lavished praise on the mental health support available within WWE saying they provided therapy when she was in a “really bad place.”
Nox was part of the most recent round of WWE releases that took place on the 18th of November. The Welsh star was let go along with the likes of Hit Row and former SmackDown Tag Team Champion, John Morrison.
During her time in the company, Tegan Nox suffered three serious knee injuries that required surgery and saw Nox out of action for months every time.
Speaking on the Wilde On podcast, Nox revealed that WWE provided therapy for her within hours of her raising concerns about her mental health:
“What I’ve found that the Performance Center is really good for is, they are very into people’s mental health. At one point, during the second knee surgery, I was in a really bad place and I told one of the coaches. Within hours, I was in a therapy session with one of their people. It was also so quick. They just want to help make your mind right. If your mind is not right, nothing else is going to be right.”
“It’s good to have a place where you can do that sort of stuff. ‘Oh, I’m having a bad day.’ They give me this therapy, so I’m going to take full advantage of it. It helped a lot. It helped so much. The medical facility is great, all my doctors are fantastic, but having that mental health is next level. You never experience that on the Indies or anywhere else. It was really cool to see how quickly they moved on it.”
Tegan Nox has indicated that she is returning to her pre-WWE name of Nixon Newell as she looks forward to the next chapter of her career.
