Triple H Comments on Tegan Nox and Status of Her Injury
As noted before, Tegan Nox suffered a leg injury during Thursday’s tapings of the Mae Young Classic tournament. The injury occurred during her match against Rhea Ripley and while Nox attempted to continue afterwards, the match was eventually stopped due to the severity of her injury.
In an update to Nox’s injury status, espnW held an interview with Triple H following Thursday’s event where he discussed his thoughts on Nox and the status of her leg injury.
“To come here tonight and be in a position to where, let me just say, it couldn’t have been any more heartbreaking for her. Emotionally, just couldn’t have been any more heartbreaking. I don’t know, at this point, what happened. She landed funky on a dive and hurt herself.
The doctor looked at it, and it was so painful at the point that he couldn’t manipulate the disk to see if it was an ACL. So we have her headed over to the hospital now and check what it is.”
