What's the story?

During this past summer's second Mae Young Classic, Tegan Nox made it to the quarter-finals before losing to Rhea Ripley via forfeit.

Nox injured one of her knees during the match and consequently had to forfeit due to injury. She has since had surgery to repair it but mentioned on Twitter that recently, she's needed a scope on the injury. noted that Nox updated her injury status via the social media platform.

In case you missed it...

Nox was signed to NXT two years ago and was slated to compete in the inaugural Mae Young Classic in 2017.

Unfortunately, she suffered a severe knee injury before the tournament and had to withdraw as a result. She rehabbed intensely and returned to full strength in order to compete as part of this year's Classic.

Having defeated Zatara and Nicole Matthews respectively in the first two rounds, she then dropped her match to Ripley. She had surgery to repair the meniscus and ACL of her damaged knee soon thereafter but apparently has required an additional knee scope to clear things up.

The heart of the matter

Nox provided her update via Twitter:

Nox mentioned that her knee made funny noises among other things:

"Rehab has become more intense, bending my knee kinda hurts a lot (I swear, I can’t even explain some of the noises I make other than it's like an exorcism) but day by day, it's getting stronger, better and bending more and more."

She also mentioned that she has kept her spirits up thanks to all of the well wishes from fans and friends alike. The exact timetable for her return is up in the air, but having a knee scope last Thursday might set her back a little bit.

What's next?

Nox hasn't had it easy since becoming a member of the NXT roster. It's her second major reconstructive knee surgery since signing with WWE and now she is recovering from a recent knee scope.

Nox is still young and has a full career ahead of her.

It makes sense to get it out of the way while she is currently rehabbing so that she doesn't have to miss time down the road due to this current injury. Nox was a big signing from the UK independent scene and was set to be a major player in NXT UK and potentially NXT.

Injuries are a part of the game and Nox has experience dealing with them, so hopefully her recovery is easier this time. When she returns again, we can only hope it will be much longer.
