Well wishes are in order for Yulisa Leon.

WWE NXT 2.0 prospect, Yulisa Leon unfortunately won’t be gracing WWE programming in the near future. The 26-year-old rising star announced that she’s undergone surgery for a knee injury, which is the first-time she’s ever gone under the knife in her 15-plus year athletic career.

Leon posted the following message on Instagram:

“I can’t say the things I’m going through in this moment are easy. 15 years as an athlete and I’d never been in a situation like this but I’m really grateful for the support of the public, and the support of my family who has always been with me giving me the strength I need in every test life life has for me. I’m pretty sure that’s what helped me to become the woman I am now.

I’m not going to lie, I feel broken but not defeated.

Corinthians 4:8-9

We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.

This is my first surgery and I can tell that in every hard moment I’ve been through and every tear I’ve shed in this time, I feel more protected and loved than ever and that’s why I want to thank again to each person who has sent me messages of strength and support. , you are making this process so much easier with all your love and positivity!

I am sure that this stage will bring a completely new Yulisa ready to continue leaving her heart above a ring and of course dancing in the pure style of Yulisa Leon, your favorite Latina next to my war partner and friend @valentinaferozwwe.”

Leon last appeared on WWE programming during the 8/2 episode of NXT 2.0, where she and Valentina Feroz, as well as Ivy Nile and Tatum Paxley, and Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jane of Toxic Attraction lost to Kayden Carter and Katana Chance in a four-way tag match for the NXT Women’s Tag Team Titles.
