What's the story?

In a week that was riddled with injury scares at WWE Super ShowDown and NJPW Dominion, there was one injury that actually put the performer out of action.

At the Pro Wrestling Eve in London independent pro wrestler, Sierra Loxton suffered a debilitating back injury during her match with Nightshade.

In case you didn't know...

Last week there were several injury scares in different promotions including NJPW and WWE.

At WWE Super ShowDown, in the main event of the night, the Undertaker faced Bill Goldberg. Unfortunately, a botched Tombstone Piledriver saw Goldberg's neck get compressed and he was knocked out. They continued the match nonetheless, and Goldberg botched his Jackhammer as well as the next move, leading to the Undertaker ending the match early.

At NJPW Dominion, on the other hand, Kota Ibushi and Tetsuya Naito had a fantastic match. It was, however, filled with several spots which saw fans cover their eyes. In one of these spots, Tetsuya Naito hit Ibushi with a German Suplex on the apron. He fell badly, clipping his neck on the apron on his way down, bending it sideways, before falling to the floor. Thankfully, he did not suffer an injury.

The heart of the matter

Unfortunately for Sierra Loxton, she did suffer an injury in her match against Nightshade. She took a bad bump, and thankfully because it was a small show the match was stopped.

She was taken to the hospital for assessment, where it turned out that she had broken her lumbar bone in her back.

She updated her fans, saying that she would be getting surgery soon. A Go Fund Me was also opened for her surgery and care by referee Chris Roberts.


Since then, the surgery has been completed.

Currently, she is on the road to recovery.

What's next?

A lumbar bone which has been fractured takes at least three months to heal. She will be out for most of the rest of the year.

Sportskeeda wishes Sierra Loxton a speedy recovery and strength in these trying times.
