NXT Star To Miss A Year From The Ring


NXT star Nikkita Lyons is out of action with a serious knee injury but after appearing on TV on Tuesday night, we now know how long she is set to be out of action.

Nikkita Lyons caused something of a sensation when she burst onto the scene in WWE as part of the NXT brand back in early 2022. She most recently competed on the edition of NXT Level Up which aired on the 20th of January 2023 defeating Jakara Jackson. But now it looks like fans won’t see Lyons in the ring for quite some time.

Taking to social media back in January, Lyons revealed that she has torn her ACL and meniscus in her knee, meaning she will no doubt miss several months of action:

“ACL & Meniscus are torn.This comeback is personal. Thank you to all who consistently show love & genuine support. it means the to me. Those of you who don’t see the vision, thank you too. Stay ya a** right there. This is just another lesson life needed to teach. Love.”

Nikkita Lyons appeared on the 21st of February edition of NXT television where she revealed that the injury will keep her out of action for around 11-12 months. Lyons was then interrupted by Tiffany Stratton who warned her that if Stratton had got hold of her, she’d be out of action permanently.

This is the second knee injury Nikkita Lyons has suffered so far in her WWE career. She suffered a partial MCL tear and an MCL sprain back in May 2022, which only kept her out of the ring for around a month.
