Thoughts and prayers are in order for Yulisa Leon.

WWE NXT star, Yulisa Leon took to Instagram to share the unfortunate news that she has undergone knee surgery, marking her first surgery in her 15-plus-year athletic career.

“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’s last appearance on WWE programming came during the 8/2 episode of NXT 2.0, where she an Valentina Feroz lost in a four-way tag match for the NXT Women’s Tag Team Titles, which were won by Kayden Carter and Katana Chance.
