• SmackDown Star Injured After A Botched Knee From Lana At WWE Live Event
At last night’s WWE SmackDown Live Event in Oakland, Billie Kay suffered a head injury after a botched knee shot by Lana during a tag team match (The IIconics vs. Lana & Naomi).
The referee threw the “X” sign (which represents a legitimate injury). Bille was then helped to the back by her tag team partner Peyton Royce and a WWE trainer.
Either Billie Kay is really good at selling, or she just got banged up thanks to a botch with Lana at #WWEOakland. Didn’t look good.
