• Mae Young Classic Competitor Suffers Serious Injury During Last Night’s Tapings – Reportedly Breaks Her Leg
Mae Young Classic competitor Tegan Knox suffered a serious injury to her leg during her match with Rhea Ripley.
During her quarterfinal match with Rhea, Tegan went for a dive on the outside and landed awkwardly on her leg. Referee then threw the ‘X’ sign (which represents a legitimate injury). The doctors checked on her, but she decided to continue the match.
However, she screamed in pain after Rhea hit her with a dropkick and Tegan threw the ‘X’ sign herself and the match was stopped. Rhea was declared the winner via stoppage.
