WWE Superstar Shotzi has been absent from World Wrestling Entertainment television due to an unfortunate injury. The 32-year-old shared a positive update on her health today, a little over a hundred days after her last in-ring appearance.

Her last match was against Lyra Valkyria for the NXT Women's Championship on the February 13 edition of the developmental brand earlier this year. Unfortunately, the contest had to be stopped midway as the challenger sustained a knee injury during the bout. It was later revealed that she had been forced out of action following an ACL tear.

The former NXT Women's Tag Team Champion took to Instagram today, 104 days after tearing her ACL, to share a positive update amid her injury hiatus. She posted a video of herself from her first session of stem cell therapy. Shotzi further claimed that she was feeling strong and healthy.

"I am healthy! I am strong! First @rejuvstem treatment in the bag! #stemcelltherapy #regenerativemedicine #rejuvstemcell," she wrote.

Mick Foley believes WWE could have done more with Shotzi

Shotzi signed with WWE in 2019. Before her injury, the former tag team champion was one of the top superstars on the female roster. Even WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley seems to believe that she was underutilized by the promotion.

On an episode of Foley is Pod, the former WWE Hardcore Champion expressed his love for the SmackDown star. The 58-year-old stated that the wrestling promotion could have done more with her. He further revealed that he was even hoping for her to win the Women's Royal Rumble Match a few years ago.

"I love Shotzi! I don't know why they took the tank away from her. Man, they could have done more with her. It looks like they are doing more now, but she is such a great character, you know, and a unique person! I think she is somebody that has a big upside. I was even hoping she would win the [Royal] Rumble a couple of years ago because winning the Rumble obviously has a bold proclamation, a real sign that the company is behind someone, and a sign to the fans that you know it would be worth their emotional interest as well to get behind her too," he said.

Shotzi was reportedly expected to compete in a Women's Elimination Chamber qualifying match, earlier this year. Unfortunately, due to her injury, she was replaced by Alba Fyre who went on to face Naomi, with the latter picking up the victory.

Only time will tell when Shotzi will recover from her devastating injury and return to WWE television once again.
