Nikkita Lyons is one of the most visible young talents in WWE right now, mainly because she has a crazy stage presence, with a particular physique and a very direct move set. Unfortunately, however, she is on her second break due to injury, in fact in the last episode of Nxt she was attacked in the parking lot in the leg with an angle that made us understand that she would be out for a while.
She then announced on social media shortly after: "My anterior cruciate ligament and my meniscus are torn. This return is personal. Those of you who do not see the vision, thanks to you too. Stay with your butt glued. This is just another necessary life lesson to be taught”.
In a new update always on her social networks, we know that Nikkita had successful knee surgery and is now well and recovering: “The operation was a success. Heartfelt thanks to the WWE Universe, my Lyon Pride members for all the love and support.
I'll come back stronger than I've ever been. #ReadyToPounce And a huge thank you also to the amazing surgeons, doctors and nurses”.
Backstage details on Nikkita Lyons
As already mentioned, Nikkita Lyons quickly became one of the WWE Universe's fan favorites, so much so that, shortly before her first injury, Meltzer reported: "I think they [WWE] like the reaction it's getting.
I don't see it as a very fast path like Bron Breakker and Gable Steveson, who will probably be launched on the main roster shortly. She is very over. I don't know if they knew initially how much she was going to go over. Yes, I am convinced that they will take advantage of this situation”.
Before being absent due to injury this second time, the girl was feuding with Zoey Stark, her former tag team partner who then had an important heel turn. We hope that Nikkita can recover as soon as possible and then return to the WWE rings to show everyone what she's made of and we at World Wrestling obviously send her our best wishes for a speedy recovery.
NXT's Lioness Nikkita Lyons reflected on signing with WWE after completing her first year in the company. "Exactly ONE year ago today, I signed with @WWE. Moved to Orlando a month later. Had some complications that I’d love to share one day.
Been 9 months since I started training with the company and I’m extremely grateful. THANK YOU @TripleH and @WWE! You changed my life." - Lyons tweeted.
