Cora Jade looks to be out of action for a while as WWE’s worst fears for the star’s injury appear to have been realised.

Cora Jade missed five months of action in the second half of 2023, returning to action on the 12th of December edition of NXT where she teamed with Blair Davenport to defeat Lyra Valkyria and Nikkita Lyons. She picked up a big singles win over Gigi Dolin on the 9th of January but now it seems things could have come crashing to a halt on a live event.

On the 12th of January, Jade challenged Lyra Valkyria for the NXT Women’s Championship in Dade City, Florida but that match was forced to come to a sudden end. Jade is believed to have suffered a knee injury during the match after landing awkwardly and was quickly attended to by referees and trainers.

WWE’s Cora Jade Suffers Torn ACL

Now it has been confirmed by several outlets including the Wrestling Observer’s Daily Update that the belief is that Jade tore her ACL. That injury typically comes with a recovery time of anywhere between 6 and 9 months meaning another lengthy absence for the young star.

WWE will also be worried after Seth Rollins injured himself on Raw during his World Heavyweight Championship match against Jinder Mahal. The extent of that injury is not yet known but it is believed Rollins will undergo an MRI to find out how much damage was done.
