Indi Hartwell is worried for her WWE tag team partner.

At King and Queen of the Ring, Indi Hartwell and Candice LeRae challenged Bianca Belair and Jade Cargill for the Women’s Tag Team Titles.

During the match, Belair went to work on LeRae’s knee which was already causing the star a problem. In the end, the injury was too much to overcome and Belair and Cargill picked up the win to continue their impressive run.

LeRae hasn’t wrestled since, and on SmackDown, Hartwell blamed the tag team champions for her injury struggles.

Speaking on the SmackDown LowDown, Hartwell said LeRae is in a “critical condition.”

“Stirring the pot? Byron, I wasn’t stirring the pot. I was just telling them what they did to Candice’s knee. Candice is in critical condition. I’m just looking out for the girls on RAW. I don’t want them to get hurt too. So if Jade wants the match, fine. She’s gonna try and break my knees, but I don’t care. Now I gotta go check on Candice.”
